Best Places for a Fishing Trip with Campers

  • Posted on Apr 18, 2019

Let’s face it, the USA is a fisherman’s (and woman’s) paradise. And what better way to enjoy the bountiful lakes, rivers and coastlines of this great country than to get out there in your campers and expedition trailers for a wild fishing trip with all the comforts of home being towed along behind you. Here are just a few of the best places you can go fishing with your campers.

Cape Cod, Massachusetts

Considered to be have some of the best saltwater fishing in the United States, Cape Cod can be the perfect place for an East Coast fishing trip. There are plenty of campgrounds in the area, with the Adventure Bound Camping Resort in North Truro giving you direct access to the beach and fantastic fishing opportunities. The site also offers kayak rentals so you can get closer to the fish. While you’re there, take a ferry to Nantucket to explore this historic fishing town and get in on the fishing action yourself.

Adirondack Mountains, New York

With over 3,000 freshwater rivers and lakes, the Adirondack Mountains in New York can be a great place to spend a few days fishing. With beautiful scenery and vast wilderness areas, there are plenty of opportunities for outdoor recreation, from kayaking and canoeing to hiking and of course, fishing. Lake Durant Campground can be the ideal place to spend a few nights, as it’s in a more remote setting, providing a more peaceful and relaxing trip. Canoe and kayak rental is available on site and there’s also a fishing pier.

Rocky Mountains, Colorado

Colorado is known for its stunning scenery, its mountain backdrops and its variety of fish to be found in the state’s rivers, lakes and streams. The San Juan National Forest near Durango can be a good spot to spend a few days hiking and fishing. Right beside a tranquil lake, you’ll find Haviland Lake Campground, offering fantastic fishing in peaceful surroundings. No motorized vessels are allowed on Haviland Lake, meaning you can explore in your kayak or canoe without disturbance. The campground even has a trail where you can access an even more secluded lake for fishing, Forebay Lake.

Shasta-Trinity National Forest, California

Just north of Redding, CA (regarded as the trout capital of California), the Shasta-Trinity National Forest is home to miles and miles of natural scenery and untouched wilderness. Shasta Lake covers almost 30,000 acres and lures in many anglers from all over looking to catch trophy trout or King salmon. Ellery Creek Campground sits on the banks of Shasta Lake and can be a good spot to spend a night or two. Just make sure you keep an eye out for bears.

Puget Sound, Washington

The Puget Sound is known for its abundance of wildlife, as well as its magnificent mountain backdrops and even city skyline, with Seattle being right on its banks. This inlet of the Pacific Ocean is home to orcas, other large sea mammals and a huge variety of marine life, including birds. You’ll find a peaceful campground at Fort Flagler Historical State Park on the banks of the Puget Sound. This former military fort can be the ideal place for saltwater fishing and accessing the water by boat or canoe, with boat launches, 2 miles of beach trails and opportunities for clamming.

“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.”
