The foliage is especially beautiful in the fall time, just remember to dress warm!  Learn More Here

2. Dry Tortugas National Park, Florida 

Prefer an ocean view? You can have one of the world’s largest barrier reefs right outside your tent in this beautiful park. Campers can rent some snorkel gear and spend their days on the beach or explore Fort Jefferson. Be prepared if you come here though. In addition to no cell-phone service there are only boat/seaplane options to enter and leave, so be sure you pack everything you might need! Learn More Here

3. Ozark National Forest, Arkansas

Arkansas is called the natural state for a reason! In the beautiful and popular national forest you’ll find something for everyone with 9 beaches, thousands of acres of lakes and streams and hundreds of miles of hiking trails. Campers can choose between a number of developed campgrounds for RV and tent camping. Learn More Here

Emerald Bay State Park features two campgrounds, one for drive-in visitors called Eagle Point Campground and the other for those boating in. It’s worth getting your hands on a boat for the access to and views of the latter, which opens each year on Memorial Day weekend. The area, located in Tahoe, California, is notable as Emerald Bay is technically an underwater state park thanks to all the boats and artifacts that have sunk in its depths. It’s also insanely beautiful and very popular, so you’ll want to reserve your campsite ahead of time online. Learn More Here
