Camping this summer... Where to go?

Hey friends!

I'm looking forward to the summer, as I'm sure you are too.

Does anyone have any "secret" camping spots they'd care to share here? I'd like to take advantage of being able to go where ordinary car-camping folks can't go. You know... having a Jeep, and all. Maybe somewhere deep in Browns Camp? Somewhere near Mount St. Helens? Somewhere hidden in the Willamette Forest? Are there any spots that you can think of that are secluded and unreachable by most people? Being able to have a camp fire (legally) would be a bonus.

If there's no 4x4-only camping, where's everyone's favorite camping spots anyway?

Thanks all!

Barlow trail has some pretty cool camping spots, its not the most difficult terrain. Your everyday smaller 4x4 can make most all of it easily but the scenery is very cool and there are trails that diverge all throughout. There is a few places along a smaller river. Timothy lake also isn't bad out in Estacada. But if your main focus is to wheel then you'd probably be better off somewhere farther in SE Oregon or Browns Camp.
