Most of us don't get out enough to find the good camping spots. They are mostly ones that have been used since the times of "those who came before" as the American Indians called them. Well, except for those that are under the cities or under the man made lakes. After all, the requirements for a camping spot are unchanged through the centuries. Flat enough to sleep, some fuel for cooking, water for drinking.

A party traveling the same route as Lewis and Clark, with the same number of scouts would mostly camp in the same spots.
