For some, a true outdoor adventure means escaping the crowds and connecting with nature. What better activity to fit the bill than camping in the winter?
Cold winter weather makes for crisp nights by the campfire at places like Green Ridge State Forest, Shenandoah River State Park, and the Appalachian Trail. Away from the heat of summer, you can discover clear winter skies full of stars, beautiful winter wildlife, and fun outdoor activities like hiking, cross-country skiing, and more.
Remember, services like drinking water, showers, and toilets are often unavailable when camping in winter. Be prepared by packing all necessary food, water, and cold-weather gear so you’re safe and comfortable.
Load up your tent, boots, and bag and make a reservation at one of the top places for camping in the winter.
