Camping in Arizona is possible nearly any time of year due to fairly mild seasons, and the state’s wildly varied landscape means you’ll never get bored. Many travelers are drawn here to experience the wonders of Grand Canyon National Park, which reaches one-mile deep, 18-miles wide, and nearly 300-miles long. If you’re looking to capture a breathtaking sunset in the park, North Rim Campground is the place to be. At the nearby Havasu Falls, nestled within Havasupai tribal lands, you can hike, swim, picnic, and wander among stunning turquoise pools and waterfalls. Visit Monument Valley Navajo Tribal Park at Navajo Nation to camp among towering reddish sandstone formations, learn about Navajo culture, and taste traditional Navajo cuisine. If lake camping is your thing, head south to Lake Powell where a boat will come in handy for exploring the lake’s 96 canyons. Down south, not far from Tucson you can step into Saguaro National Park’s otherworldly landscape filled with massive Saguaro cacti, unique water features, and the occasional desert tortoise.
