Head on a camping trip

Camping is a great way of getting some time alone as a family. After all, the kids can’t go on their phones and tablets while you are in the middle of the woods. So you are cut off from the outside world. It means you can play some games and go on a few walks as a family. For picturesque views, you should go camping at one of America’s greatest national parks. Yellowstone National Park is an excellent choice as you can go hiking, swimming, and even on a horseback ride with your family. And they have great campgrounds where you can pitch a tent. Or for more comfortable accommodation, you could look into getting an RV from companies such as Chesapeake RV Solutions.

The North Rim Campground is open from mid-May to mid-October. Operated by the National Park Service. There are no hook-ups, however, there is a dump station within the campground. Pets are allowed, but must be leashed at all times, and may not be left unattended. Wood and charcoal fires are only permitted in provided campsite grills. No gathering of down wood - wood may be purchased at the general store. Coin operated laundry and showers are located at the entrance to the campground. Accessible campsites and restrooms are available. Reservations may be made through the National Recreation Reservation Service by calling 1-877-444-6777 or online at http://www.recreation.gov/ It is possible to check at the campground for the slight chance of an availability. Campsites are $18-$25. Golden Age or Access passport holders pay only ½ price year round (passport number is needed when making reservation and passport holder must be camping at the site). A maximum of two vehicles, six people, three tents are allowed per site. (A vehicle, which is towing a trailer, pop-up, tent trailer, fifth wheel, or a motor home pulling a vehicle, is considered two vehicles.) After mid-October, weather permitting, a limited number of campsites at the North Rim Campground with limited services (portable toilets) will be available on a first-come, first-served basis until snow closes Highway 67. Hikers and cross-country skiers will be permitted to use the park's group campsites throughout the winter months if they have obtained a permit through the park's Backcountry Information Center.
