In this first camping for weekend edition on Primitive Survivors, we have listed the best places to go camping so you can make the most out of your well-deserved break.

White Mountain National Forest – New Hampshire

This national forest takes pride in having a landscape that features mountainous hardwood lush, breathtaking alpine regions, majestic lakes, streams, and rich wildlife for the perfect weekend outdoor experience. Campers visit this New Hampshire campsite for rugged adventures. It has four drive-in camp locations and around 800 campsites.

Dry Tortugas National Park – Florida

Florida’s treasure, the Dry Tortugas National Park has been very popular amongst camping enthusiasts with one of the largest barrier reefs in the world beaming you right outside your lodging. You may also rent some snorkeling gears or lounge at the beach during the weekend. They also welcome bird-watchers so make sure you do not miss out on the fun. Bring your pair of binoculars. This national park is mostly open water with various small islands. It is also luxurious since the park is only accessible through boats or seaplanes.

Bartlett Cove Campground – Alaska

The name of the park has been embedded in the geographical history of the place. Around 200 years ago, the area became home to the snout of a 100-mile long glacier, the National Park Service reports. Though icebergs have long left the area, the flora and fauna still reflect the changes as far as from the Neoglacial Ice Age.

Explore this camping ground either on your own or with a group, and there are also campers that join the Ranger Naturalist group to discover the places through their hiking trains. They have a forest trail and a tribal house should you wish to reconnect with the local culture.

Julia Pfeiffer Burns State Park – California

Beyond the bustling cities, the amusement rides and Hollywood, California also plays host to Julia Pfeiffer Burns State Park, a site that many overnight hikers have come to love. It has everything to satisfy your weekend camping desires. You can take a stroll while viewing McWay Falls, a favorite site for Big Sur pioneer Julia Pfeiffer Burns from which the park has been named. You may also try the one-mile round-trip known as the Partington Cove Trail. The trail leads down to a 60-foot tunnel through a wooden bridge, and then, be awed by the rocky beach.
