The United States is home to so many breathtaking landscapes that are protected and maintained by the national park service. Everyone should go visit a national park in their lifetime if possible. Going camping in a national park is the best way to get out into nature and hit some incredible hiking trails.
- Do some research on the campsite before you head out. Some are first come first serve while others require a reservation. Some have RV hookups and others do not. Many national parks have several campsites to choose from.
- Know the landscape. Pick a campsite that is close to the sites you want to visit. You’ll definitely want to know whether or not there will be bears.
- Check in at the visitor center before going to the campsite. Some national parks require you do this. Even if they don’t, it’s a good idea to speak to a ranger anyway. They can give you tips and safety advice for your visit.
