Good morning!

It’s time for AllCampgrounds, and today we’ll be revealing some of the best tent camping and RV camping for one of the biggest camping events of the entire year.

Last year’s July 4th Camping Special brought us to Washington, D.C. and Atlanta.

There are awesome camp grounds to visit around the nation’s capital and all around the country.

Join AllCampgrounds for this whirlwind tour of Independence Day camping!

Lots of people will choose to go camping around the D.C. area for the National Mall celebration and annual fireworks, but there are plenty of other fine choices. The Vee Bar Guest Ranch in Laramie, Wyoming has an “Independence Day Jubilee” planned, with camping to suit your tastes and a whole variety of Old West-style events: cattle herding, river tubing, horseback riding, fishing, and hiking are some of the headliners.

Centrally located to some of the country’s most thrilling parks and monuments, Custer / Mount Rushmore KOA is a prime destination in July. It welcomes tent camping and RV camping alike, and provides the amazing array of activities and amenities you expect from KOA: you’ll enjoy chuckwagon breakfasts, a heated pool, and much more. Definitely a top pick for the 4th, with tons of holiday events all around the local area.

Colombia State Historic Park isn’t quite the kind of “park” we look for in camping, but it’s a hub of 4th of July activities and convenient to traditional camp grounds in the California state park system. To find out about a whole bunch of other events throughout California for the 4th, swing by the main California State Parks website. The search function pulls up all kinds of fun for the big holiday weekend – and check out Wilder Ranch State Park! Thirty-four miles of trails await for hiking, biking, or riding!

You can probably tell that, here at AllCampgrounds, we’re looking forward to camping on the 4th. For a contrasting viewpoint, check this out: We Don’t Camp During National Holidays Anymore. An entertaining article from writer Bill Barker reminds us that there are some challenges to hitting the trail on major holidays! If you’re reading this and haven’t made plans yet, don’t wait; reserve your camp grounds now and have fun later!

Last, but not least, two more important throwbacks: Camping Near Mount Rushmore is a great resource if you’re trying to get up close to the famous annual fireworks display and want options other than the KOA above. And finally, what about the enterprising campers who’ll be setting off their own holiday fireworks? Update your knowledge with Fourth of July Fireworks Safety for Campers. Hope you enjoy your Independence Day, and see you again at AllCampgrounds to help plan your next camping trip
