Portlander Chris Santella gathered tips from park rangers, Sierra Clubbers, outdoor guides and many others for his new guide “Fifty Places to Camp Before You Die.” Many sites are for car campers, but there’s also everything from cliffside “portaledge” camping in Bavaria to sandy-islet tenting in the Gulf of Mexico’s remote Dry Tortugas. Mount Rainier is in there, too. ($24.95, Stewart, Tabori & Chang, May 2016)
