There is nothing more relaxing than a camping trip. Imagine cooking over a campfire while the stars come out – it’s one of the best ways to relax and create memories with loved ones. Plus, America is such a great place to go camping that you won’t have to plan an international trip during the pandemic. Just load your RV or pack your tent and head out to one of the locations listed below. We’ve chosen spots in each of the main regions of the continental United States to help you find a spot you can drive to.
Arches National Park, Utah
Arches National Park has challenging trails winding through its famous red rock formations. These outcroppings provide great views and a dramatic backdrop for photographs. Because it’s such a popular destination for climbers and hikers, you’ll find plenty of facilities close by, from full-service campgrounds where you can park your RV to more natural sites to pitch a tent. Make sure to bring a compass and a map as the trails are not always well marked, and you don’t want to get lost!
Olympic National Park, Washington
Located in the Evergreen State, Olympic National Park is a west coast favorite. You’ll find diverse ecosystems, from temperate rain forests to snow-capped mountains and over 70 miles of coastline. Hiking trails wind through almost a million acres. In addition to hiking, biking, climbing, and camping, you can also go whale-watching in season. If you choose to go backcountry camping, make sure to bring bear spray and hang any food from trees. There are also RV sites nearby.
Glacier National Park, Montana
Located in Big Sky country, Glacier lets you hike over 700 miles of trails through pristine forests, alpine meadows, and over rugged mountain terrain filled with beautiful lakes. It’s a paradise not just for hikers and campers but also for fly-fishermen, hunters, bird watchers, bikers, and equestrians. There is even a 50-mile long Going-to-the-Sun highway which lets you observe nature from the comfort of your car. There are some historic lodges along this road you might want to check out, as well as nearby RV parks. If you’d rather rough it, there are nearly a thousand sites for pitching your tent in the park. We do recommend you exercise caution, as the park is home to a variety of predators including bear and wolf.
