Celebrate National Park Service’s 101st Birthday by Camping This Weekend
If you're planning on celebrating the National Park Service's 101st birthday this weekend and you think you've waited too long to book a campsite, no worries! There are still some good spots available and you may even be glad you procrastinated.
The National Park Service is celebrating its 101st birthday this Friday, Aug. 25th, and last-minute campers can still get in on the fun, even if you're headed to one of the most in-demand parks in the country like Yellowstone.
Hipcamp.com is a site that introduces new campsites by relying on users to list favorite spots, and they tell us that unlocks access to private lands like nature preserves, farms, and ranches. It's a whole new secret stash of campsites for procrastinators who think they've missed the boat, when the most popular sites are already booked.
And as the National Park Service celebrates it's big birthday this Friday, Hipcamp says some of the top spots to camp include Yosemite, Yellowstone, Rocky Mountain National Park, and the Grand Canyon. They're listing some of the campsites off-the-beaten path, like those near private streams and waterfalls in Idaho, and even one on an old farm in Montana.
This might be a good resource for the fall too, to make the most of the beautiful Treasure Valley weather that's coming. We like secret stuff that's out of the norm, and we'll keep you updated as we find more of this stuff. Have fun!
