Joshua Tree National park is probably the most unique of the parks in this article. Located in the middle of the Colorado and Mojave desert Joshua Tree is one of the few really dry places where camping can be very enjoyable. 

There are plenty of great hikes in Joshua Tree, but what makes this park so cool is the landscape. Super dry desert with wild rock formations all around you. In fact, most of the campgrounds in the park are surrounded by these natural playgrounds as I like to call them. Keep an eye on the weather if you plan on camping in Joshua Tree during the summer as it can get extremely hot!

As it can get as cold as 10F/-21C.

If you plan to camp during prime time, it’s suggested that you make a reservation at a lot of these campgrounds because of how popular the area is. Surrounding the area, you’ll find stunning lighthouses, beautiful nature, wildlife creatures, and great seafood.

I’m sure this is a name that you are familiar with. Yosemite National Park has been protected since 1864 and is known for having some of the most beautiful scenery in the whole country. In this 1,200 square mile park, you can enjoy meadows, sequoias, the wilderness areas, and deep valleys with stunning cliff faces.

Camping is extremely popular in this park. There are three areas that offer camping with multiple different campgrounds in each area. These all have their own opening and closing date as well as what is allowed in the park and what isn’t in terms of travel and sleep. Most campgrounds allow RV’s, so if that’s how you’re traveling, you’ll be in luck. 

You can also find many campsites deeper in the park if you plan on a multiday hike like climbing Half Dome. You may require a permit though so be sure to research beforehand.
