  • Camping in America

Camping runs through the very heart and soul of TrekAmerica and some of the best travel memories can be made whilst unplugging from the real world, sleeping under a blanket of stars and sharing stories around a campfire, oh and let's not forget about the s'mores, mmm s'mores!

We have an awesome selection of camping based tours around the US, Canada and Alaska and we have chosen our Top 5 favourite campsites, which are in some pretty special places.

5. Cathedral Gorge State Park, Nevada

A million years ago, Nevada's desert was once a massive lake, but now is home to a dramatic series of canyons that have been eroded into spectacular features. This is the desert after all, so all campsites come with a shaded picnic area for some protection from the desert sun, perfect for chilling out under, after you have explored some of the trails in the area.

4. Cherry Hill State Park, Washington DC

Cherry Hill is the closest camping ground to Washington DC, which makes it the perfect place to call your home while you explore the nation's capital. What makes this campsite super great, is that after a long day sightseeing, you can jump in one of the two swimming pools, or maybe the hot tub and sauna are more up your street, the choice is yours.

3. Four Mile Creek State Park, New York

Just 11 miles north of the almighty Niagara Falls, Four Mile Creek State Park's campsite sits on the shores of the beautiful Lake Ontario. Don't go anywhere without your camera the views in the area are awesome, especially as the sun is setting over the lake. Oh, and make sure you keep an eye out for the white tail deer that have been known to frolic through the campsite occasionally.

2. Kodachrome Basin State Park, Utah

This campsite, was aptly named after a National Geographic Society exhibition came to the park and were amazed by the changing colors of the sandstone chimney's, creating a beautiful spectacle as the sun crossed the sky. This quiet campsite, will allow you to experience true desert life, with all the facilities of a modern campsite. With Bryce Canyon nearby and horse riding available, you will start to think you have stepped into a Wild West movie.

1. End of the Road Campground, Alaska

This is by far our favourite of campsites, as the name implies the campsite sits at the end of the McCarthy Road on the edge of the Kennicott River, with spectacular views of the Root Glacier. You really will be stepping foot into the heart of the wilderness, but don't panic there will still be hot showers available and there is even a bear proof storage container so those pesky bears don't steal your food.
