Explore nature

First, let’s talk about an obvious benefit of camping – the chance to explore. Make time to take in all the beauty of nature that surrounds us. You’ll be left staring in awe at the incredible size of the Grand Canyon, the gorgeous colors of the Blue Ridge Mountains, star-filled skies over Arches National Park, and other natural wonders. There are more than 130 national parks and over 10,000 campsites in the United States, so there will always be somewhere new waiting to be discovered. Beaches, deserts, mountains, woods, and hundreds of places in between are yours to explore when you’re camping. Get away for a weekend or plan a longer road trip and make memories along the way.
