Whether you’re a winter camper, or a summer one, finding the right place to camp isn’t that easy. especially when you want to look at some perfect scenery with fewer people around!
In this post, we’ll introduce 10 most beautiful places to camp in the United States.
The only thing to consider is during the COVID-19 pandemic, follow the latest government guidance and check availability at your chosen campsite before departure.
North Rim Campground, Arizona
Een tho North Rim Campground isn’t still fully opened after the pandemic, you want to keep an eye on it, especially during fall when there is a fewer crowd around and the weather isn’t as hot as summer. You don’t want to miss those mesmerizing sunrises and sunsets.
Mount Pisgah, North Carolina
You probably heard of this quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson: “It’s the not the Destination, It’s the journey.” that’s so true about Mount Pisgah since the journey to get there is a beautiful one! Dubbed “America’s favorite drive,” the Blue Ridge Parkway escorts visitors through some of the southeast’s finest terrain – sky-high blue spruce, varying mountain peaks, and bright wildflowers
Tuolumne Meadows Campground, California
At 8600ft, Tuolumne Meadows campground is truly stunning in the summertime with those wildflowers. The only thing is that it’s slightly more crowded than other ones on this list.
Caladesi Island, Florida
Do you want to have a gorgeous beach all to yourself? Caladesi Island is calling you! This island is only accessible via boat which means very few other humans around!
San Juan Islands, Washington
The San Juan Islands are reachable by boat and plane. These islands are between Washington state and British Columbia in Canada and would give you a true wilderness camping experience. Just make sure you don’t visit it during winter when water is too cold!
Assateague Islands, Maryland
They don’t call “Assateague Islands” one of the world’s most unique camping environments for nothing! Who doesn’t admire white sand beaches while looking at stunning wild horses roaming around freely?
Haleakala backcountry, Hawaii
Haleakala backcountry is not only available for daily hiking if you get the permit from the visitor center, but you can also go camping in this fabulous place. Just try to visit it in the late spring or early fall to avoid the highest temperatures and most of the rainy season.
Bolan Mountain Fire Lookout, Oregon
Fire Lookouts are the perfect picture we all have in our mind about a camping place like beautiful mountains and trees at distance, fresh weather, and tons of trails to hike!
Silver Bell Campground, Colorado
With 14 sites, Silver Bell Campground is one of the most beautiful ones in the country.
Visit Silver Bell in the late-summer season, or even the early fall, and watch as the aspens turn to gold around your campsite.
Now you know where your next profile picture will be taken!
Bartlett Cove, Alaska
If you want to visit Alaska at its finest, Bartlett is your “Go to” place. No registration’s needed and you can kayak in the chilly waters of Glacier Bay, and hike in the thick forest. For having the longest daylight time, the best time to visit Bartlett Cove is during summertime.

I’ve camped in dozens of beautiful places but only one was on your list. Thanks for the post. It gives me even more new places to explore.
Glad to know you found it useful!
Thank you for your comment!
I’ve done two out of the ten, Tuolomne and the North Rim….spectacular!
Wow! Good for you! Yes, they’re beautiful!
Thank you for your comment! 😊
For as much of the US as I’ve seen, I haven’t been to any of these places. (I have been to Yosemite, but I didn’t have time on that trip to see Tuolumne Meadows specifically.) This country is so big, there’s always more to see.
Exactly! I feel like one should dedicate his/her life to visit everywhere in the US before death! lol
Good list! I’d like to add a few spots, if I may! The Lost Coast of California, where you can camp on the beach, is pretty spectacular! And Grand Teton Ntnl Park has some great campgrounds! Also, both King’s Canyon & Sequoia Ntnl Parks in California’s Sierra Nevada are very special! Rocky Mountain Ntnl Park has some campgrounds that shouldn’t be missed as well! Thanks for getting me thinking about all these lovely spots! 🌞
Thank you for mentioning them.
I’ll keep your comment in mind for the next post about it.
awesome!!!! love all the pics and the quote. Love Haleakela!! the Silver Bell Campground is stunning!!! wow. ❤️❤️❤️❣️ Cindy
Thank you for your comment dear Cindy!
you are sooo welcome!! ❤️
Tuolumne Meadows is definitely crowded! Especially in the summer! My Mom worked at Yosemite a long time ago and she hates how much worse it has got in the summer, especially with the “turkeys” as she calls them
I was probably one of those who made your mother’s commute harder in 2010! Apologize from her on my behalf!
She was there in the late 70s and we weren’t living here in 2010 lol. Still, her annoyance with “turkeys” has never left her!
Oh, I see. I don’t feel as bad now! lol
I’m still trying to find some time to ask your opinion about Londonistan. I’m sure I’ll ask you one day! lol
Thank you for your comment.
That’s cool. Been busy myself too. How about I send you an email to remind you?
No, I feel terrible if you do so, as I know how busy you are with everything right now.
Okay. Will be glad to talk to you about Londonistan whenever because it will give me a break from things
