BROUGHT TO YOU BY Mortons On The Move

"Camping may feel like an activity best left for spring and summer. But lovers of the great outdoors don’t need to wait for warmer seasons to enjoy their next camping trip. Still, finding a good all-season campground is a little more complicated than just an online search for “year-round campgrounds near me.” So pack up your gear, and let’s explore the secrets to finding that perfect campground for your off-season adventure."

What Is a Year-Round Campground?

A year-round campground is a campground open 12 months a year (or close to it). No matter when you plan your trip, you can rest assured that an all-season campground will be open and ready to receive you.

What Are the Best States for Year-Round Camping?

Unless you particularly enjoy extreme temperatures, it makes sense that states in the extreme north and south of the country tend to have fewer year-round campgrounds. This means you shouldn’t expect many options in states like Alaska, Maine, Minnesota, and large parts of Arizona, Nevada, and the desert southwest.

Are Year-Round Campgrounds Expensive?

Like all accommodations, campgrounds will naturally run the gamut from ultracheap to high-end and luxurious. This is also true for year-round campgrounds, which can fit nearly any budget.
