Camping in your own Backyard

by Megan M |

Summer is right around the corner and that means that camping season is practically here. If you are stumped where to set up your tent and want to get away from your regular spots, look no further – this article is going to go over some of the best spots in the United States to explore, because sometimes the best adventures you can have exist right in your backyard.

Olympic National Park - This Washington based campsite is any nature lover's dream. With amazing trees and trails, this incredible area also offers three different ecosystems including a rainforest (say what?!). You can go for an amazing hike or watch whales migrate when the season hits. If you pay $5 you can get a backcountry camping permit and set up a suspended tree tent in any of the massive forest lands.

Glacier National Park - This amazing Montana gem is not for the inexperienced camper – it has some serious wildlife threats that you should be aware of. Glacier has a very exciting Going-to-the-Sun Road which is 50 miles of winding highway, making its way through the incredible nature scene this park has to offer. There are more than a thousand standard camping spots and the countless number of backcountry places that are nestled among the glaciers that will be calling to any mountaineer who has an ice ax on hand.

The Adirondack Park - This incredible getaway is located in New York. Not only can you get up close and personal with wildlife, this massively spacious area has 6 million acres to take advantage of. Take some time camping out on your own personal island or take a hike among the trees. There are tons of small towns to explore, and take advantage of the boating, sailing, canoeing, climbing, and hiking that Adirondack has to offer.

This world was meant to be explored fully and what better way than camping out and taking in everything Mother Earth has to offer. One important thing to remember is that the Earth is a living thing and anywhere that we lay our heads and set up camp, we need to leave the site better than what we found it.
