In today’s conclusion to our Camping For Everyone series, we discuss “primitive” camping. While most of our posts on this theme have been for newcomers to tent camping, primitive camping is advanced; it literally means camping in the wilderness in an area that hasn’t been settled or prepared for it. Most primitive camping takes place in large national and state parks, but far from established camp grounds. Though primitive camping isn’t the same as going back to cave days, it does mean going “off the grid” and exercising serious camping skills. (Sorry, RV campers – most RV resorts and campgrounds don’t offer the primitive experience!) (more…)

Morning, campers! For as long as I’ve been writing for AllCampgrounds, we’ve been on a journey to cover camping in the fifty states and around North America.

But one of my passions is travel, and I like to get out of the country every once in a while – so just this once I thought it’d be a great idea to give our loyal readers a glimpse of tent camping and RV camping around the world.

After all, natural beauty is everywhere, and there are unique sites, terrific camp grounds, and protected public lands all over the globe! (more…)

Howdy, all!

In today’s AllCampgrounds blog, we’ll provide some more great sites for you to visit and learn even more about tent camping, gear, outdoor activities, and the nationwide camper community that’s out there and waiting to meet you.

Though we try to cover a little bit of everything in AllCampgrounds, we’d be remiss without a little tip of the hat to super-specialized venues around the web.

We hope you find these resources just as valuable as our own site, as they’re some of the best! (more…)

Of course, there are hundreds of state and regional RV camping groups around the country, so today we’ll focus solely on those that are known nationwide.

Where can you see rain forests, mountains, and arid deserts peppered with terrific camp grounds, all situated along a beautiful, pristine frontier?

Well, good news: not all campsites matching this description are down in South America or somewhere around the world! In fact, if you answered Washington state, you’re exactly right!

And that makes Washington the next stop on AllCampgrounds’ 50 States Series, where we’ll begin, as we often do, with tent camping. RV camping is on the horizon for next time! (more…)

Good morning, campers!

AllCampgrounds is taking it to the next level today, looking at some of the best and brightest in national parks, monuments, trails, and rivers throughout Nebraska.

Being right at the heart of the journey for tens of thousands of pioneers and homesteaders in America’s wild frontier history, Nebraska is filled with historic trails and other signs of those thrilling, but dangerous adventures.

Not all campsites are convenient to these landmarks, and not all of them offer overnight options – so we’ve decided to delve a little deeper and give you as many different sites to check out as we can. As we know, there are always camp grounds somewhere, and finding ‘em is worth it! (more…)
