Death Valley National Park
Death Valley national park is a great park that has completely different landscaping than the parks previously mentioned. In this park, you will not find a bunch of trees.

So, as you can see, our national parks are completely different from one another. It is as if they picked the very best nature had to offer to make our amazing national park system. We love visiting national parks whenever we have the time. Many of them have their very own campgrounds and have campgrounds near and around them that will work as well.
I have been camping and going outdoors for over 15 years! My first experience was when I joined the scouts. There I learned a lot. From building a campfire to set up a really big tent. Then I know this is awesome. Around 2005 I also started Geocaching. This is a lot of fun. And every time we go camping we look at the map to see if there are some nice caches around.
