Best Places to Camp During the Winter
Camping might not be on the top of mind when it comes to activities during the winter months. However, there are many perks to camping in the winter… there are no bugs and less crowds in normally popular camping spots. Here are some of our top picks for places to try out this winter.
- Sand Dunes National Park in Colorado.
Sitting in southern Colorado, the Great Sand Dunes National Park has the tallest sand dunes in the country and offers a diverse landscape. You can sand board, sled, ski or hike on the dunes. Although chilly, the sun is normally shining and can even warm up the sand.
- Natchez Trace State Park in Tennessee.
This area in Tennessee, just outside Nashville, doesn’t get a lot of snow so you’ll be able to enjoy riding horses, archery, hiking and more. There are three lakes in the park as well if you want to try some fishing. Just make sure you check the weather first as the area sometimes has unpredictable weather patterns.
- Padre Island National Seashore in Texas.
Featuring the longest stretch of undeveloped barrier island, Padre Island is a great spot to camp for those who don’t want to bear the cold weather. It’s warm year-round and features numerous ecosystems to explore and multiple camping sites. You can enjoy activities like kayaking, fishing, boating and bird watching some of the 380 migratory and resident birds.
- Yosemite National Park in California.
Known for its waterfalls, sequoias and meadows, Yosemite National Park can be easily explored in the winter when the crowds are gone and there’s a fresh blanket of snow. Enjoy activities like snowshoeing, skiing and hiking and make sure you check out Yosemite Falls for some additional sightseeing.
