Best National Parks to Visit with Campers this Spring

  • Posted on Mar 18, 2019

After a crazy winter of freezing temperatures and extreme weather, spring is finally on its way. And that means it’s the perfect time to load up your campers and expedition trailers and head off on an exciting springtime adventure. But with so many fantastic places to visit across our great country, it can be difficult to know where is best to visit, particularly for the best of spring. So whether you’re planning an outdoorsy spring break or you’re just looking to get out there and explore, our National Parks can provide the perfect backdrop, especially this spring. And don’t forget, on the first day of National Park Week, April 20th 2019, the parks are free to enter.

Great Sand Dunes National Park, Colorado

Spring can be a great time for checking out the huge sand dunes at Great Sand Dunes National Park. You can hike, sled or even snowboard on the sand. There are plenty of campgrounds in the area, including one within the park which is usually open from April through October.

Yosemite National Park, California

One of the best times to visit Yosemite National Park is the spring, when the rivers and creeks are full of meltwater and the waterfalls are at their most spectacular. Also, late spring can be a good time for seeing the colorful dogwood blossom across the park. There are several campgrounds within the park and in the area, but they can often fill up fast and many of them require reservations all year round.

Great Smoky Mountains National Park, Tennessee

The most visited National Park in the US, the Great Smoky Mountains is a popular place to explore at any time of the year. But grab your campers and head out during the spring and you’ll be able to see the magnificent array of wildflowers. From April 24th through 27th, it’s the Spring Wildflower Pilgrimage, where people come from across the country and even around the world to enjoy what the park has to offer, from walks and exhibits to seminars and classes – a must for any budding botanist or gardener.

Kenai Fjords National Park, Alaska

If you’re looking for a different kind of adventure this spring and you want to make the most of your expedition trailers, then head on up to Alaska to visit the spectacular Kenai Fjords National Park. During the spring can be a perfect time for wildlife watching, with whales returning to feed, plenty of migratory birds and black bears.

Arches National Park, Utah

Arguably one of the most mesmerizing places on the planet, Arches National Park is filled with more natural stone arches than anywhere else in the world. And springtime can be a superb time to visit this awe-inspiring landscape. One of the best things about this park is that when you’re camping, you have the chance to see thousands of stars in the sky above. Because of the isolation of the park, you’ll see some of the darkest skies in the contiguous 48 states.

“First, thanks for all of the help and patience in preparing to order our camp. You made sure that we really got what we wanted. From the time we picked up our camp we have really enjoyed it. It pulls great, and is easy to park and set up. This camp is so comfortable. Cooking and cleaning is easy, and everything is easy to get to. You can have people in and not feel crowded. We have camped in camp grounds, by lakes, and in the hills hunting with no problems. We like camping in it best when it is cold so we can use the wood stove. There is nothing cozier than that stove. Summer is nice to; the windows are placed so there is good ventilation. The door coming in from the front is more secure feeling. The kids are fighting over who will inherit it, but we are determined to wear it out before that happens.”
