The United States is undoubtedly beautiful from coast to coast, and when looking for a good place to camp out, it’s important to choose the campsite with the most to offer. Here is a list of the top 10 campgrounds in the U.S.

Open year-round with peak seasons from mid-April to mid-October every year, campsites are available on Assateague, an island that shares shores with both Maryland and Virginia. While campsites are only available on the Maryland side, this is a very popular camping destination on the East coast due to the ability to camp out on the beach and see the island’s famous horses. Assateague is home to a band of wild horses that have roamed the beaches and attracted tourists for hundreds of years.
2. Yosemite National Park
Located in California all year round, there are a number of campgrounds on Yosemite’s grounds that offer stunning views. The majority of this park is true wilderness; no electricity, no roads, and no man-made buildings. Yosemite offers campers the ultimate one-on-one nature experience, and boasts a large number of trails for hikers.
3. Glacier National Park
One of the largest and most established campgrounds in Montana, this beautiful national park has over 700 miles of hiking trails and over 1,000 camping sites. The park is open year round, and most campers come on a first-come-first-serve basis to enjoy the breathtaking views.
