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 

Mount Pisgah (North Carolina) Oct 2016

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.

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.

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.

  1. 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.

  2. 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! 🌞

  3. 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
