The best camping near Homestead National Monument of America guide

Overview

About

All those lessons about homesteading that you learned in school come to life at this national monument. Two separate visitor centers are packed with information. You can get a real sense of just how vast the prairies are. Walk a mile to find a school from the homesteading period (open from Memorial Day to Labor Day only).

You'll learn a lot here. Did you know that homesteading continued in Alaska into the 1970s? The exhibits don't neglect the Native American side of the story either, making it clear what happened when they were pushed off their lands. If your ancestors were part of homesteading in the 1800s, you can search on the Visitor Center computers to find out more information about them. A collection of farm implements also helps you understand just how hard it was to work the land by hand. Docents and Rangers are on hand to answer all your questions, and the Junior Ranger program here is a lot of fun for your kids.

Hook up your RV or pitch your tent on the same prairie where homesteaders built cabins and tilled the ground. Hipcamp can help you find campsites as well as cabins, rustic lodges, and even straw-bale dwellings.
