Check out our Top 10 Camping Destinations across the Globe for ideas and inspiration on where to pitch your tent next.
Below are the five idyllic North American sites to make Cheapflights.com's list of Top 10 Camping Destinations across the Globe.
•Pacific Rim National Park Reserve - Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada - Encompassing three major regions -- Long Beach, The Broken Group Islands and the West Coast Trail -- Pacific Rim National Park is an exciting destination for camping enthusiasts. Set your site up in the wilderness -- along the sandy beach or in a formal campground with fellow adventure travelers -- and get ready for world-class hiking, swimming, kayaking and even surfing.
•Glacier National Park - Montana, United States - Glacier National Park sweeps across the U.S.-Canada border, taking over two mountain ranges, hundreds of lakes, and an incredible array of flora and fauna. Camping in the park is on a first-come, first-served basis, so visitors should reserve campsites well in advance. The wait is definitely worth it. Fly-fishing is a popular pastime, but if you love to hike, there are upwards of 700 miles of exciting trails.
•Haleakala National Park - Maui, Hawaii, United States - Most might head to the nearest beach resort in Maui, but for the adventure traveler, we suggest pitching a tent in Haleakala National Park. The highlight of the park is the Haleakala volcano, which offers a great space for stargazing, hiking and watching the sunrise. Farther into the park is the rainforest region of Kipahulu, where visitors can hike to the Waimoku Falls and swim the pools of Ohe'o. Cabins are also available in the park through a lottery system.
•Jasper National Park - Alberta, Canada - The largest of the Canadian Rocky Mountain Parks, Jasper National Park was deemed a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1984. It is now a hot destination for visitors looking to camp, hike, raft, kayak and fish. There are plenty of campgrounds to choose from, all of which have firewood and bear-proof lockers. Insider tip: Make time to visit the Miette Hot Springs and the Athabasca Falls.
•Denali National Park - Alaska, United States - Alaska is known as America's last frontier, and Denali is at the center of this incredible oasis. Visitors can stay at one of seven campgrounds throughout the park and bear witness to a pristine landscape with glacial mountain ranges, alpine forests and clear rivers and lakes. The wildlife in Denali is rampant with black bears, grizzlies, moose, sheep, marmots, wolfs and loads of other animals.
