Break out the tent, put your phone on airplane mode, and head out to an epic location for a little one-with-nature time. StorQuest has put together a list of our all-time favorite camping spots across the U.S. All you have to do is reserve a site and see where adventure leads you!
1) Julia Pfeiffer Burns State Park – California
For major camping cred, get a spot at Julia Pfeiffer Burns State Park. There are only two exclusive tent-only spots in the entire park, so you’ll want to plan ahead and hope for a bit of luck. Considered the most epic place to camp along the Big Sur coast, these secluded walk-in sites south of McWay Cove are totally worth it. You’ll experience panoramic views overlooking the Pacific Ocean, the rugged California coastline, and an 80-foot waterfall crashing below you.
2) Inks Lake State Park – Texas
This gem just northwest of Austin is a real crowd-pleaser. Hiking, boating, fishing, biking – you name it and Inks Lake State Park has it. Grab a waterfront camping spot for insane lake views and anytime swimming or fishing access. Hike through 1,200 acres of trails of dense forests and up to awesome lake lookouts. Get in a fresh-water dive session where underwater rock formations take you down 60-feet below the surface. Rent a paddleboard, canoe, or kayak and explore Devil’s Waterhole, an Instagram-worthy natural pool where you can chill and swim or cliff jump to quench your thirst for adrenaline.
3) Havasupai Campground – Arizona
You know the saying “all work and no reward?” Well, that’s not the case here. The Havasupai Campground is tucked away on the Havasupai Indian Reservation. The only way to get there? An 8-mile desert hike to the main office, where you’ll check in and hike another 2 miles to the campground. You can’t stay there without a reservation, so you’ll definitely want to lock down your spot before you make the trek. Once you’ve made it, trade in all your hard work for a trip to the must-see Havasupai waterfalls – this is definitely the capstone to an unforgettable trip.
4) Cayo Costa State Park – Florida
If you’ve ever wondered what it’s like to live on your own private island, a campsite at Cayo Costa State Park is about as close as you can get. We’re talking no hot water and no electricity – and the only way to get to this slice of paradise is by boat or kayak. Tent camp on the beach under the stars or rent one of the cabins. Either way, you won’t be disappointed. By day, explore the 9 miles of undeveloped beaches, snorkel with brightly colored fish, or hike inland through island pine forests and coastal scrub. By night, channel your inner Cast Away by making a fire, cooking a couple of freeze-dried meals, and watching an insane sunset over the Gulf of Mexico.
Pro Tip: To make sure there is availability, book a ferry and return date at the same time as your camping spot – because unfortunately, you can’t stay forever.
