Family Camping Holidays - Articles Surfing
There is no better way to get the family together on a holiday than camping. You get to visit a new location, see the sites, and enjoy the amenities during the day. At night the whole family can enjoy a dinner and discussion around a campfire.
If you're trying to decide where to go, here is a list of what are considered some of the best campsites in the United States.
First on the list is a campground aptly named America's Best Campground, or A.B.C. It is located in Branson, Missouri. The site is large, with room for over 200 tent campsites and RV hookups. While you get the experience of camping, you can also have a lot of the comforts of home such as satellite TV, electric, water and telephone hook-ups. If you aren't up for the tent life, and don't have an RV, there are cabins and deluxe cabins available to rent as well.
If you're thinking of heading down Arkansas way, Petit Jean State Park is just outside of Little Rock, and is a great area for camping holidays. In addition to over 120 campsites and over 30 cabins, this park offers expanded swimming and picnic areas as well as trails that will allow you to walk up and see the Cedar falls waterfall.
If you're way out west, the Montana de Oro State Park in Southern California should be on your list of places to stop and camp. The name means 'Mountain of Gold' and the area is golden to lovers of the outdoors. If you want to make an escape from the city and really get back to nature, this is the park for you. It is full of flower lined hiking trails, a bluff walk where you can view families of sea lions below, and many areas to camp. When you consider this location, you need to know it is more primitive than most sites. You have to bring all your own supplies and carry them in to reach your camping location.
While you are in California, you may want to make a stop at Angel Island Park. It's located in San Francisco Bay. It's not the easiest location to reach. You will have to get there by ferry boat. But, once you arrive, you can enjoy the beauty of the night sky and quiet about the camping side of island, or look over to the shimmering San Francisco skyline and see the Golden Gate Bridge from a completely new vantage point. There are limited campsites and trails so you can tour the island and see the side that is a little more civilized with shops and bike rentals.
If you're heading north, you may want to set you sites on South Dakota and Fort Welikit Family Campground. While it's near the attractions such Mount Rushmore and various parks and caves, it's also a great recreation area in itself built around three lakes and offering trail rides for equestrians. In addition to tent and RV accommodations, cabins can also be rented on site.
