According to these are 7 of the top campsites!!!! I really hope to go camping so very soon.

California’s Joshua Tree National park
Eight hundred thousand acres filled with endemic trees and ancient, wild rock formations. The best part? No need to be an expert climber. Jumbo rock is a blast to explore. There is also horseback riding, birdwatching, and mountain biking.

Florida’s John Pennekamp Coral Reef Park
Located in the Florida Keys, this original undersea park features 178 nautical miles of coral reefs, seagrass beds and mangrove swamps. A perfect place to scuba, snorkel or take a glass bottom boat tour.

Idaho’s Warm River Campground
Surrounded by willow and pine trees, a fishing enthusiast’s heaven. While Dad is busy catching brook and rainbow trout, the kids can go sailing or tubing. There’s a river regatta in July. Natural springs and waterfalls dot the scenery and in winter the frozen falls are spectacular.

Montana’s Glacier National Park
This park is named for its glacier-carved terrain and remnant glaciers from the ice ages 10,000 years ago. Bike, boat or horseback ride along spectacular vistas. There are also a wide range of weather conditions at the park thanks to the mountains, lakes and the Canadian cold fronts.

California’s Channel Islands National Park in Santa Cruz Island
The Channel Islands National Park at Santa Cruz Island in California boasts one of the largest and deepest sea caves in the world. Called the Painted Cave, and named after its colorful rocks and algae, it is nearly a quarter-mile long and 100 feet wide. You’ll also get to see the island scrub jay and eight plant species found only on Santa Cruz.

Maryland’s Assateague Island National Seashore
The Assateague Island National Seashore has over 48,000 acres in Maryland and Virginia. It’s a great place to camp and kayak, swim and surf , but it is best known for its wild horses. There are over 300 wild ponies roaming free. Don’t forget your waterproof cameras.

Colorado’s Rocky Mountain National Park
There are over 350 miles of hiking trails and there is something for all ages and skill levels. From gentle lakeside walks to high mountain summit ascents—and even vertical rock climbs, this park will give you a workout. There’s also plenty of wildlife to see, including elk and the Rockies' big horn sheep.
