My family is planning a two week roadtrip from Bend, OR to Mount Rushmore. There are 5 of us - 2 adults and 3 kids (14, 13, 10). We plan to camp as often as possible, and prefer rustic areas over being surrounded by RVs and lots of people - but also plan to find a roller coaster or waterpark along the way. We'd like to spend one day driving then 1-2 days exploring a smaller area. Any suggestions for routes and "must see" stops along the way?
Here's a rough outline of what we have in mind:
Idaho panhandle (Post Falls or Sandpoint)
Montana, I90 corridor (Bozeman looks about halfway)
Baker City, OR (visiting friends there)
home to Bend, OR
Thanks for sharing your thoughts and ideas! I am also planning to post this request in other state forums.
