Of all of the places that I have been camping, Yellowstone National Park was definitely my favorite.  There is so much beautiful scenery.  There are waterfalls and geysers.  There are bison and bears and other wildlife.  It is absolutely amazing!


If you go there, I recommend giving yourself at least two days so that you can take your time and see everything.  If you want to read more about Yellowstone, I wrote about our trip to Yellowstone here.




Gooseberry Reservoir, Utah

Last year we camped at Gooseberry Reservoir.  If you are looking for a peaceful, quiet place to camp where you can enjoy some beautiful mountain scenery, this is a place worth checking out.  It’s in a pretty rural area, quite a ways from the hustle and bustle of the city.  You can read about our trip to Gooseberry Reservoir here.
