Traveling to new destinations can be hard when you’re towing a couple of kids and a tight budget. To overcome this, my family camped. A lot. My family camped so much, we could have been some type of Ranger family; we would pack up the van in less than an hour and be ready to go on the road before the sun even came up. Upon arriving, my brother would set up the tent, I would unload the food, and my dad would start the fire. It was a team effort. Well, except for my mom. She just relaxed.
Looking back, these camping trips were some of the best vacations I ever had with my family. The adventures were educational and fun, and we were always in a beautiful environment. And in the hopes that you’ll have as good a time in the Great Outdoors as I did, I leave you with this short list of National Parks offering great family camping opportunities. Each has something different to offer, but all provide a great setting to enjoy quality time with your family.
