My blue heeler & I are planning on heading up there in a few months, maybe for a week or so. I'd love some info from people who have been there. We would prefer to stay in a park with a powered site, obviously with pets allowed. We're pretty self sufficient aside from needing power for the fridge once the car stops. I hope to see the Mad Max Museum in Silverton & would love to drive out to the Pinnacles but apparently the road is closed to tourists (something to do with mining), can someone confirm? Any other suggestions? Any parks to avoid?
