Didn’t get your fill of camping during the summer months? No worries — there are plenty of amazing camping destinations around the United States where camping can be just as enjoyable in the winter as it is in the summer.
Mount Hood is a popular winter destination for many and for good reason. The mountain offers loads of awesome snow sports activities, from skiing and snowboarding to sledding and snowmobiling. There are several different spots to choose from when looking for a campground open in winter, so you should be able to find one with the amenities you want in the location you desire.
If you always wanted to visit Death Valley, but the heat puts you off a bit, try visiting in the winter. The temperatures are still pleasantly in the 60s, so you avoid the scorchers of the summer, and you get some chilly winter air at night. There are quite a few campgrounds within the park open in the winter, but some are limited in terms of available hookups for your electricity and water.
Similarly, Joshua Tree National Park is a great place to camp in the winter because you not only avoid hot temperatures, you also avoid big crowds, as this park is one of the most popular in the National Park System. Wintertime still allows you to enjoy all the great hiking and vistas and horseback riding tours are available.
For a destination actually cold this winter, try Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore in Michigan. Backcountry camping is available with a permit and normal campground sites are available for free during the winter. Just take note the roads aren’t plowed in many places, so plan accordingly. Enjoy the amazing winter lake views and maybe even try your hand at ice climbing.
In the South, visit the smallest national park in the United States. Hot Springs National Park gives you the chance to take a dip in one of the many natural springs, where you’ll stay toasty regardless of the weather. If you’re not quite ready to don a swimsuit this winter, try the park’s hiking trails.
It doesn’t matter which bottles you use for transporting liquids when you travel, just so long as they meet Transportation Security Administration regulations, right? Wrong. Not all travel-sized liquid containers are the same. For example, cheap plastic bottles may explode in flight, leaving you with stained and damaged clothes and a mess to clean up. Rather than scrimping on below-par bottles for your carry-on liquids, invest a bit of extra money in bottles you’ll actually look forward to using and that won’t require laborious attempts at cleaning out every last drop of your product.
