Camping Places, Camping Parks, Best Camping Locations, Free Camping You name it, I hope to share everywhere that I, and you, my fellow campers have camped!
I will share my first-hand experiences in many amazing National and Provincial Parks. Plus information on the best camping, which is of course free camping! Plus you can share your favourite camping places with fellow campers.
This page will continually be updated with new camping parks that I, or you, my fellow campers visit. Please share your experiences at the bottom of the page.
I have many favourite camping places. Although I have mostly camped in Canada and the USA, I have been camping up by glaciers, beside isolated lakes, deserts and I’ve found that each park is unique in its own way, each offering beautiful views and unforgettable experiences.
Free Camping (sometimes the best camping in my opinion):
Generally, I camp in Provincial, National and State Parks, however I also love to find free camping. Often this means that there are no services such as toilets, water or showers, but if you love to rough it, then you’ll be rewarded with fewer people, some amazing places plus… who doesn’t love free? Find out my tips for free camping and some beautiful places!
As a Canadian, I started out camping in Canada (Ontario to be specific), and eventually moved to BC and started camping out there. Canada is a country of wilderness, and if you so desire, you can really get away from civilization if that is your desire.

United States National Camping Parks:
The United States has a diverse collection
of National Parks, from Mountains, Deserts to Canyons and Lakes. If you have a
particular park in mind, make sure to check out the busy season and make
reservations as these camping parks can get quite busy, particularly during the summer
when the weather is great and people want to get some fresh air.
