I only wish I could add to all of these interesting places here; mine was a little more mundane--my high school.  We played mostly in classrooms, but for a six-month period we actually played in the science lab (the then-sponsor took us on when the second sponsor, an exchange teacher from Australia, didn't want to do it anymore; our first sponsor was the "real" sponsor.).  We tried to see if we could play one session "under the stars" in the school's planetarium, but was turned down. :(

We only had a few ideas for a good playing space:
>>  Lots of blackboard space;
>>  A place where the club could bring in food and drink;
>>  A place where no-one would be disturbed by "noise";
>>  The sponsor was always welcome to join in.

His rules were even fewer:
>>  Don't break anything (remember this was normally a chemistry lab!);
>>  Keep the noise down;
>>  Clean up after yourselves at the end (including erasing all of the blackboards--they were large!).

It worked out very well--I only wish we could've thanked him for putting up with us; I often wondered what HE thought of US. :?:

Favorite location? Well, that's in the context of time as well as place, but I'll stick to my previous reply to this question (though I'm not sure which board I posted that on... :))

Old ruined Pictish hilltop fort, just above where I was at school at the time. Pretty much only the (admittedly sizeable) ramparts above ground nowadays, so you have to imagine your own Ghost Tower. ;)

Nothing too unusual for me. Last year we rented a cabin out in the woods to play an all-night session (3.5e), and ended up getting a nasty snowstorm. We just kept the fire stoked and had a ball! About 20 years ago we played Call of Cthulhu while camping in southern Ohio in an area that was a reclaimed strip mine and a wonderful campground - very quiet and private. Creepy place to play CoC, though.

I'd love to get my current group on a real camping trip, but they're all soft homebodies, even the one who's an Eagle Scout.
