Great Camping Spots for an RV Trip This Labor Day Weekend
While the end of summer signals cooler temperatures, changing leaves, favorite sweaters, and pumpkin spice everything, there is still a bit of summer to enjoy this Labor Day Weekend. It’s here – a three day weekend to celebrate the American workers’ “labor” by providing them with an extra day of rest.
Whether you and your family enjoy camping, hiking, fishing, or simply exploring the great outdoors, here are a few of the best camping spots – from state and national parks to RV resorts – to enjoy your end-of-summer RV trip!
Grand Teton National Park, Wyoming
If you’re longing for an outdoor adventure as well as incredible panoramic views, Grand Teton National Park is the place! Filled with bison, elk, moose, and other unique wildlife, Grand Teton offers picturesque trails, spectacular waterfalls, horseback riding, trout fishing along the shore of Jenny Lake, and more.
Lake George, the base of the Adirondacks, New York
Around Labor Day in upstate New York, the leaves are just beginning to change along Lake George and amid the mountains casting their shadows upon it. The region has lots to offer – something for everyone in your crew. There’s hiking the hills, ziplining, and treetop obstacle adventures as well as shopping, fine dining, and a wide variety of activities to enjoy.
Cannon Beach, Oregon
A picturesque west coast seaside town, Cannon Beach offers near-perfect weather around Labor Day weekend. Explore the unique Haystack Rock and Needles formed from a lava flow millions of years ago. The tidal pools promise discovery and awe, as the home to starfish, sand dollars, crabs, sea anemone, and other unique wildlife. Haystack Rock is also home to a multitude of birds including puffins. Walk the beach, collect shells, build sandcastles, hike the nearby trails, or explore the town’s art galleries and eclectic shops.
The Freshwater Springs of Northern and Central Florida
While everyone flocks to the beaches, Labor Day is the perfect time to discover Florida’s Springs. With 70 degree fresh water, the springs are the ideal place to cool down from the summer’s heat! At Wakulla Springs, you can swim, take a river cruise, and play a guessing game of the Hollywood classics filmed in the park. Or try Ichetucknee Springs, where you can relax while enjoying a unique tubing adventure. At Homosassa Springs, you’ll likely encounter a manatee or two, as well as other native wildlife.
The Black Hills, South Dakota
For your Labor Day weekend trip here, choose Custer State Park, where you’ll find indigenous wildlife – bison, elk, bighorn sheep, mountain goats, and more – amid shimmering lakes, lush forests, commanding rock formations, and sparkling waterfalls. Here you can hike along scenic trails, as well as fish, paddle, and swim in peaceful lakes. While you’re here, you will want to explore Mount Rushmore, just next door to the park.
This is by no means an exhaustive list, but merely one to get you started on your exploration of all that America has to offer. Ready to plan an RV trip for this Labor Day Weekend? Contact Campground Membership Outlet for the best deals on campground memberships.
