Camping season is finally here. Tranquility in the middle of nature, cool dips in the water, fishing and late-night s’mores. Could it get any better than that? Well, sure it can. Especially if you have the most perfect spot to pitch that tent. We’ve done our research and narrowed down the Top 10 places for you and your family to camp this summer to ensure you get the most relaxing escape from your busy reality.
1. Acadia National Park, Maine
Known as The Pine Tree State, Maine is covered in 17 million acres of forest, making it a shoe-in for one of the best camping experiences you’ll ever have. Located on Mount Desert Island, Acadia National Park is sure to impress all nature lovers. If you hike to the top of Cadillac Mountain you will see one of the best sunrises of all time.
2. Green Mountain National Forest, Vermont
If you pitch your tent close to Vermont’s Long Train you will find it easy to hike part of it during your stay. This trail is over 270 miles long, making it the oldest long-distance trail in the U.S. The trail actually follows the ridge of the Green Mountains through Vermont from the Massachusetts border to Canada. You must remember, however, that this area has no electrical hookups or dump stations so you must come prepared.
