Assateague Island National Seashore, Maryland
This is where you go for world-class beach camping. Assateague Island, where wild ponies travel the beaches of this 37-mile uninhabited island near Chincoteague, is split between Virginia and Maryland. However, camping is only allowed in the part in the Old Line State. Some of the campsite locations have changed. Reservations are required from March 15 through November 15.
Bryce Canyon National Park, Utah
Imagine waking up and the first thing you see are the hoodoos, tall rocky spires. It's a stunning view. But this is not all Bryce Canyon National Park offers. The park reaches 2,000 feet. Take the opportunity to camp in unique forests. There are separate ranges with spruce, Ponderosa and Pinyon pines. Some hiking trails can be easily handled by beginners. All sites in the two campgrounds are limited to 10 people.
Congaree National Park, South Carolina
See astonishing trees, such as giant hardwoods and towering pines, primeval forest landscapes, and diverse plant and animal life up close. The park offers both front and backcountry camping opportunities. Reservations for the two campgrounds – Longleaf and Bluff – are required. Nominal fees range between $5 and $20. You need a permit if you want to camp in the backcountry.
