From peaceful lakes to hidden Hawaiian islands – these American locations are definitely the places to be this summer for every camper van goer…
Glacier National Park, Montana
Way up North in the Rocky Mountains lies the Glacier National Park, known as the “Crown of the Continent” which offers turquoise blue lakes, glacial landscapes and the most incredible views. With 740 miles of trails ready for you to explore, you can bet that your days spent travelling will never be dull here.
This place is on the bucket list of every outdoors enthusiast and by just looking at it, we can’t say we’re surprised. With mystical waterfalls, stunning views and over 800 mile trails – Yosemite is an essential destination for the adventurous backpacker.
Acadia National Park, Maine
This quiet, peaceful location is perfect for those of you who just want to relax and take a break from reality. Located at the northeast tip of the US, you have both the rugged coastline and enchanting fir forests to explore. You can go from renting a kayak to soak up the ocean views, to embarking on 125 miles of incredible hiking trails to experience all of the stunning views Acadia National Park has to offer.
If you’re planning to take a long vacation then Alaska is the place to turn to – the largest US state with more than 6,500 miles of stunning coastline has one of the smallest populations in America, meaning that the panoramic views will feel even more remote and peaceful. The entire state is a breath of fresh air and you can guarantee that even at the end of your trip, you will still be urging to see more.
If you’re looking for the ultimate Californian dream then head to the coast for an easy, breezy ride. Inundated with stunning views from start to finish and easy to get to camping grounds, this trip will take minimal effort to organise and you’ll reap the rewards of camping paradise.
Na Pali Coast, Kauai, Hawaii
If you’ve done your research then you’ll know that most backpackers have the lush destination of Na Pali in their sights. With glowing green mountainsides and crystal waters, this remote location makes for a great getaway to, what looks like, an entirely different world.
You will have to leave your camper van behind however, since there are no vehicles allowed on this side of the island – you can’t even travel by boat! The only way to get to it is by taking a challenging 11-mile hike, which takes even the most experienced of hikers at least a day to complete. But don’t let that stop you, once you make it to the other side, you’re rewarded with the most idyllic camping site.
