    I'm in California and my partner and I want to go camping this coming weekend. Does anyone on here know of any good gay or gay friendly campsites within a reasonable drive to Los Angeles?

    Gay campsites? I am confuzzled by all the marginalization.

    'Look, fags!'
    'Where?'
    'Over there, two guys and they have fishing poles!'
    'Oh yeah. Who do they think they're kidding?'

    I would rather get run over by a Chevy than go camping with women; Their nothing but trouble.

    It's too bad you don't live up here in Washington! There's a gay campsite called Bender Creek in the North Cascades that's been running for years. Its' nickname is BendOVER Creek....of course.

    Why does every "gay friendly" site offer hot tubs and booze. Does every gay activity need to include drinking and sex?

    Gay camping out? Oh, you mean having to stay at places with no doormen, bellmen, porters, valets or anyone to park our cars?

    I think I once knew someone who stayed in some God-awful place like that - was it a Best Western?
