The USA is home to some of the greatest national parks in the world. Each summer, millions of people worldwide head to these parks to explore, camp, hit the trails, and enjoy!

If you love camping, you’ll love what the USA has to offer. My blog lists five of the best camping spots for you to enjoy.

~ Grand Teton National Park ~

Located near Moose, in Wyoming, this national park is perfect for nature lovers. Grand Teton features some of the country’s most dramatic scenery, includes snowcapped peaks, fiord-like lakes, and flowing rivers. Campers can hike the trails, explore the park, and take in the incredible nature while at Grand Teton. Plus, this park is located close to other spectacular parks, like Yellowstone National Park. For a true nature lover, though, camping out in one of Grand Teton National Parks five campgrounds is a must. Try Jenny Lake if you want to be in the best spot for views, conversation, and activities.

~ Glacier National Park ~

Glacier National Park is located in Montana and is a popular destination for outdoor lovers! Glacier National Park is a great place to go hiking, fishing, walking across Going-to-the-Sun Road, or even skiing in the wintertime. If you’re planning a multi-day trip, be sure to embrace the outdoors and camp within the park. In fact, backcountry camping is a popular thing to do here - try it out!

~ Acadia National Park ~

Acadia National Park is located in Maine. It’s one of the most popular national parks in the USA and is frequented by millions of visitors each year. I recommend you visit this park in the fall for those beautiful tree colors! Plus, the weather is crisp, the crowds are light, and the foliage is spectacular. There is a mix of campgrounds available at Acadia, either through the National Park or privately owned.

~ Denali National Park ~

Denali National Park is located in Alaska. If you want the best camping location, head to Wonder Lake, which gives the most incredible view of Denali, North America’s tallest mountain! There are so many incredible things to do while you’re there, either in the national park or in the town itself, like hikes and trails, rafting, ATV tours, dog sledding, and so much more. For the best weather, go in the summer months - Alaska gets cold!

~ Mount Hood National Forest ~

Mount Hood National Forest is in Oregon, on the West Coast. The best camping spot here is by Trillium Lake. Here, it’s difficult to find a less than awesome view of the 11,250-foot stratovolcano Mount Hood, Oregon’s highest point. This spot is incredibly popular, so be sure to book ahead if you want the serene morning views.

It’s pretty much certain that if you visit one of the 63 national parks in the USA, you will be spoiled by the incredible views, trails, and nature. Camping is a great way to make the most of your time and ensure you are as close to nature as possible while on your trip.

Be safe, plan ahead, and have the time of your life if you do decide to visit one of these spots!
