Protecting your most valuable asset — your family
GET LOST! 7 B est C amping D estinations in the U nited S tates
FROM THE DESK OF DeDe Soto
Family vacations are so complicated these days. Resorts. Cruise ships. Theme parks. Staycations. Whatever happened to a good old-fashioned camping trip? Nothing brings the family together like exploring the great outdoors, sharing s’mores around a campfire, or sleeping beneath the stars. But half the battle of camping is knowing where to go. Don’t worry —we’ve got you covered with a few suggestions your family is sure to love! Visiting the Grand Canyon is on most people’s bucket list, so why not make it your vacation destination? This natural wonder is also an incredible camping location. But you won’t be sleeping in the canyon. North Rim Campground is located beneath towering Ponderosa pines, shading campers from the hot Arizona sun. You can hike in the Grand Canyon, roast marshmallows over an open fire, and watch the sunrise over the Colorado River. Between May 15 and October 31, campsites are available by reservation only, so claim your spot by visiting recreation.gov. Looking to explore the true untamed wilderness? Then venture into Sawtooth National Forest. Northern Idaho is about as far from civilization as you can get, though you’ll never feel alone with the impressive Sawtooth mountains to keep you company. Hike rugged trails, fish in rivers and lakes, and find the perfect place to pitch your tent in the thick forests. But before you head out, be sure to get your wilderness permit from a local Forest Service Office. NORTH RIM CAMPGROUND, GRAND CANYON NATIONAL PARK, ARIZONA SAWTOOTH NATIONAL FOREST, IDAHO
