Across the country, camping and RV rentals are soaring as Americans heed the words of COVID-19 health experts: it’s safer to be outdoors than indoors. Rather than use your campground as a base camp, why not treat it as destination in and of itself? These sites offer plenty of adventure right from your tent and breathtaking views to enjoy during your downtime. Be sure to check individual websites for COVID-19 guidelines or restrictions before you head out.

West: Cape Lookout State Park Campground, Oregon

Located 80 miles from Portland, this park has ten miles of hiking trails and more than 170 beachfront campsites (from $21) along a two-mile peninsula. Hike the 2.6-mile trail to the tip of the cape for views of migrating whales in fall.

Southwest: Mogollon Campground, Arizona

The Mogollon Rim is a 200-mile-long limestone and granite cliff located two hours southeast of Phoenix. After hiking along the 4.2-mile Rim Lakes Vista Trail or kayaking on secluded Knoll Lake, pitch your tent or park your RV at the Mogollon Campground (from $18). A short walk will take you to the rim’s edge for sunset views over Coconino National Forest.
