State parks, forests, and
public campgrounds

Camping in state parks offers
experiences as delightful as waking up alongside purple and yellow
wildflowers in the Mojave Desert,
or laying your head among towering eucalyptus trees where colorful

as well.
Kampgrounds of America
(KOA) is a franchise network
of nearly 500 privately owned
campgrounds throughout the
United States and Canada. They're
known for their array of creature
comforts-coin-operated laundry
facilities, hot showers, and general
stores stocked with easy-to-forget
items such as Band-Aids and bug
spray. KOA campgrounds are
broken up into three different
categories: KOA Journey, a range of
roadside locales that cater to longdistance travelers; KOA Resort,
all-inclusive campgrounds where
you can dine on pizza at an on-site
café, swim in an in-ground pool,
and enjoy organized activities such
as outdoor movie nights; and KOA
Holiday, a sort of hybrid of the two.
Hipcamp offers more personalized private camping experiences. This online marketplace
pulls together a range of unique
camping experiences on private
lands across North America,
from horse ranches to sculpture
gardens. Depending on your
interests, you might find yourself
lazing in a hammock overlooking
a vineyard one day and feeding
baby goats the next.
