But I've been camping since I was 2months old, and all over this amazing country. Here are my top selections for roughing it in the great outdoors.
For the 1st timers:
Disney's Fort Wilderness- Discover charming woodland trails, a pristine beach, spectacular pool areas and rip-roarin’ entertainment at this picturesque backcountry retreat. Disney will even rent you the tent... and cots!
Yosemite National Park- This might seem like the quintessential camping location, perhaps too much for a first timer? Not at all! Permanent tent structures such as those available at Housekeeping Camp have the comfort and convenience of modern amenities.
Glacier National Park- Enjoy the crackling of a campfire and sleep under the stars in Glacier National Park. With 13 different campgrounds and approximately 1,009 sites to choose from, options are plentiful.
The Black Hills- Footsteps from Mount Rushmore, the property is beautiful. I have lot of fond memories in this national park. My dad's favorite campground is the KOA, and I've never stayed a cooler one as a kid.
For the Pros:
Paonia, Co.- McClure Campground is located on the south side of McClure Pass. The historic town of Marble is nearby. The campground sits at the head of Lee Creek.
Parksville, Tn/Cherokee National Forest-This beautiful remote area offers mountain vistas, waterfalls and clear mountain streams and is a sanctuary for black bears. The 8,358-acre Big Frog Mountain Wilderness / Wilderness Study Area offers about 35 miles of backcountry trails. This natural setting provides outstanding opportunities for solitude and primitive camping, fishing and backpacking.
