Go Explore: Top 5 Camping Destinations in the USA

Ever wonder where you’re most likely to see a Kamp-Rite Tent Cot in the wild? We’re blessed to have fans of our gear all throughout the U.S., but some of the biggest concentrations are in Texas, Florida, California, Arizona and Indiana. Unsurprisingly, all of these states offer a tremendous variety of breathtaking locations to set up camp. If you ever happen to be planning a camping trip in one of these areas, here are five of our favorites spots that we highly recommend.

Guadalupe River State Park, Spring Branch, TX

Conveniently located between San Antonio and Austin, Guadalupe River State Park is a fantastic place to take the family in the summer. This park is great for swimming, fishing, hiking, and a number of other camping and water activities. Camping is popular here, as many people come to escape the heat and cool down in the river. The riverside is a perfect place to set up your Kwik Set Hammock and enjoy the warm weather as the sun goes down.

Looking to escape from the grind of the city for a few days? Buckhorn Campground is a convenient two-hour drive from downtown Los Angeles in the Angeles National Forest. Located 6,300 feet above sea level, this campground is a great way to cool down during the hot summers in Southern California. Although temperatures rear 90 degrees during summer days, the nights can drop below 60 degrees, which can be enjoyed comfortably in the Kamp-Rite Woods Ultra Sleeping Bag. This campground is filled with lush trees, hiking trails and bright starry skies away from the Hollywood sign.

Less than two hours south of Jacksonville Florida lies the largest natural spring on the St. Johns River, Blue Spring State Park. Covering more than 2,600 acres, this mystic park is a popular place for water-related activities during the summer. This giant spring radiates with crystal clear water and water temperatures that are perfect for swimming, snorkeling, and even scuba diving. Blue Spring is best to visit during the Spring, Summer or Fall, between March and November. However, precipitation can surprise campers during the summer months so make sure and pack your double tent cot and rain fly! The park is closed during the winter months as the water temperature drops and is a refuge to hundreds of manatees during the colder season.

Lost Dutchman State Park, Apache Junction, AZ

A mere 48-minute drive from Phoenix is the Lost Dutchman State Park. With its rugged terrain, this desert campground is perfect for mountain biking and exploring wildlife. Although temperatures can skyrocket in the summer, this desert environment is great for sunset scoping and breathtaking views of the Superstition Mountains. With the right essentials, it is easy to relax in comfort while enjoying all of the perks the desert has to offer. You can relax off the ground and keep your beverages cool during this warm desert outing with the Kamp-Rite Director’s Chair with an attached side table and cooler.

Turkey Run State Park, Marshall, IN

A great place for family camping and only an hour and a half drive from Indianapolis, Turkey Run State Park is filled with an array of activities to keep you and the kids happy. There is a multitude of hiking trails for all different experience levels, as well as a scenic creek that’s great for canoeing, fishing, and swimming. Made up of ravines and gorges, you and your family can socialize above the park’s rocky grounds with our comfortable folding chairs. The park is open year-round but is most popular during the summer months due to the many available water activities.
