The fun of camping must not stop when the season gets too hot or too cold. It’s part of the adventure to look for the perfect campsites where you can put up your tent and start your experience. Here are some of the ideal spots you can check out during early spring:
1. Florida – Cayo Costa State Park
This park in sunny Florida is nestled along the Gulf Coast’s barrier island. You have to ride a ferry or a private boat if you’d like to go camping on the site.
The adventure begins once you reach the spot, starting with a network of trails that make it possible to tour the island on a bike or by walking easily.
Most of the 30 campsites the park houses are found near the beach. It is possible to see swimming dolphins or manatees while sightseeing. Still, you can also enjoy snorkeling and swimming during your stay.
2. Texas – Big Bend National Park
The park is a vast wilderness where you can enjoy the tranquility and solitude of being one with nature during your stay. It has primitive campsites where you can stay while enjoying the best views of the Rio Grande.
You can take the challenge of going about the Chisos Mountain Trail to wander through the desert or witness the wondrous landscapes of the Big Bend.
Make sure to bring enough drinking water with you during your stay as it is possible to run out of supply even during early spring.
3. California – Cleveland National Forest
It’s a 30-mile drive away from the city and one of the best sites to go camping, especially during early spring. It quickly gets full, so you have to make your reservations early on and acquire the necessary permits before proceeding.
Aside from camping and enjoying the view, you can try the Cedar Creek Falls trail in the area. It’s a 6.6-mile trail hike that will bring you to witness the impressive 80-foot tall waterfall, which is not visible during summer.
4. South Carolina – Congaree National Park
Considered as one of the most magnificent wildernesses in the South, it is also a one-of-a-kind camping destination that you can visit no matter the season. You are free to explore the park by kayak, canoe, or walking.
Some of the most popular trails inside are the Kingsnake Trail and River Trail. They are easy to hike, and you’ll never run out of beautiful sights to see along the way.
5. Nevada – Valley of Fire State Park
The park got its name from the sandstone walls and towers in a flaming red color contrasting to the limestone cliffs in tan and gray color. This 40,000-acre land is home to ancient petroglyphs and petrified trees.
