We have looked around the net, read user forums, comments, and reviews in search of best camping sites to go. The following seven parks raise to top among others all around the country.
1. The Grand Canyon is a true bucket list destination. The area’s most accessible campground features tent and RV camping. This is the kind of place you’ll still be talking about months perhaps years later.
2. Jumbo Rocks Campground is just a short hike from some of the area’s coolest rock formations, located toward the western border of California’s renowned Joshua Tree National Park. Being only about 2 hours away from Los Angeles and with just only first-come-first-served sites you’ll want to arrive early.
3. At Bartlett Cove Camp in Alaska’s Glacier Bay National Park, you will be camping where a glacier once stood. With endless trails to hike and waterways to kayak this place is a quick reminder of why Alaska still remains as the Final Frontier.
4. If your bucket list starts with Grand Canyon, it is not complete if it does not include the White River Campground located within Mount Rainier National Park of Washington State. This campground features tranquil campsites around the White River, a glacial river filled with salmon and trout. This site is ideal for fly fishermen and backpackers looking for a picturesque basecamp.
5. Michigan’s Upper Peninsula is not a widely known outside Midwest for its top nature sites. Set among deep pine forests along the banks of the Little Beaver Lake campground is a rare beauty within Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore. For boaters, there’s a boat ramp to launch your watercraft towards adventure, and for land lovers, there are plenty of hiking trails too.
6. The Absaroka Beartooth Wilderness Area covers well over 900,000 acres across both Montana and Wyoming, making it near impossible to pick just a single campsite among the endless possibilities sharing the view and the beauty of the surrounding nature. The area offers great hiking trails and alpine lakes nestled between mountain ranges. Just don’t forget to pack the Grizzly-strength bear spray.
7. Acadia National Park is only one of many beautiful camping areas in Maine. Here you’ll find hiking trails where the hills meet the Ocean, calm seas to canoe, and historic towns to explore. The area is a hallmark of New England and the rest of the northeast cost of the country.
