Discover the Puget Sound waterfront of the Pacific Northwest.
South Florida's bustling Miami might be better known for its nightlife than its camping, but that doesn't mean there's not a lot to do outdoors! For starters, the sun and surf of the famous Miami Beach are just 20 minutes away. Hop on a sightseeing boat in Biscayne Bay to enjoy the beautiful Miami skyline. Head about an hour southwest from Miami to reach Everglades National Park. This is one of America's most famous parks, and with good reason. Much of this 2,400-square-mile park is only accessible by watercraft. Got about a week to spend truly exploring this area? Mix camping and canoeing with a trip down its nearly 100-mile Wilderness Waterway. Prefer to keep more distance between yourself and wildlife? Take a trip to Zoo Miami. Miami's climate means that the zoo can host a wide variety of species. Kids especially love checking out the park's Komodo dragons, anacondas, and alpacas. Larry and Penny Thompson Campground are right next to Zoo Miami, making for a convenient crash spot. In addition to tent camping, this campground features a 240-spot RV park with full hookups. A 22-acre freshwater lake in the campground allows for fishing and swimming.
