How much is it to just pop up a tent each night, and is my dog welcomed there? (Desoto State Park) Also are there any other camp grounds around the the state park that are fairly nice with shower facilities that are at a reasonable rate? I am leaving from Boaz Alabama on my bycicle and my dog. What would be your best suggested route of travel, with camp grounds available on the way to the Little River Canyon National Preserve? Please respond to my questions. For I have limited funds and would like to know the best route that provides camp grounds.
