Plan a Mid-Week Camping Trip
Campsites fill up on Friday and Saturday nights, says Williams. So, for your pick of the tent and RV sites, kick off your family trip on a Tuesday or a Wednesday. To find a campground, visit the National Park Service site and click on “Find a Park.” Once you’ve chosen a spot, go to “Plan Your Visit” for fees and reservation details, directions, and information on activities and guided tours. If you have crabby teens who’d complain about roughing it in the woods with Mom and Dad, pick a place that even they can get excited about―like Washington’s Olympic National Park near Forks, where the Twilight book series is set.
