Campers love the national parks. Since 1916, when the National Park Service was created, the United States has preserved wilderness areas within a system overseen by the US Department of the Interior.

National parks are popular destinations for outdoor recreation and provide spectacular camping locations. Each US National Park offers scenic nature and a rugged, natural environment. We asked which are your favorite national parks for camping and these five stood out from the rest: Glacier, Grand Canyon, Great Smoky Mountains, Yellowstone and Yosemite.
