Tips & Advice
For some, winter means locking the camper away in the garage and praying for the arrival of spring. For others, it's the perfect time to take a trip.
Thanks to advancements in the design and technology of trailer tires and camping gear, families can camp and road-trip all winter long. Seasoned winter campers claim cold weather preferable due to the lack of crowds. The cold months deter would be camp-dwellers from overpopulating the area, so that frustration of idling for hours on end waiting for a campsite or trying to navigate busy highways full of distracted tourists? Not a problem.
If you're looking for your next adventure and willing to brave the conditions, national parks are the best place to start. We like Olympic National Park in Washington State, Yosemite in California, and Bryce Canyon in Utah. If camping in the cold isn’t your style, parks in warmer climates, like Biscayne National Park in Florida, remain desolate in human population but temperate.
So the question is, intrepid campers, To camp or not to camp. Will it be cold? Sure. A little rugged? You bet. Worth it? Most definitely.
