Hey, I am new this forum and back country camping as well. Some friends and I are planning a camping trip this summer. I am looking for any kind of input on a place to go.

We are from Sioux Falls, SD and are looking to go somewhere within 12 hours. I have been researching the Porcupine Mountains, MI, places in Colorado and the Ozarks.

We are going to be doing a 9 day trip and are planning on having a place to serve as our "base camp" where we can set up camp and then go out back country for a couple days at a time. We are into fishing, and hunting if possible. Any input on a remote, great scenic area with good fishing/hunting and access would be appreciated. Thank you for your input in advance.
