Zion National Park is a bucket list spot for outdoorsy travelers, especially those looking to sleep out under the stars. For the perfect campsite, reserve a place at the Watchman Campground (Zion’s other favorite, South Campground, is currently being rehabilitated). There’s water available, as well as flush toilets, so you won’t have to totally rough it. Zion, located in Utah, has a wealth of things to do, from rock climbing to river rafting to hiking, so plan your stay for at least a few days. The park is open all year, so head in whenever you have a free long weekend. For supplies or a quick meal, stop by the nearby town of Springdale, situated just outside Zion Canyon. While the tent and electric campsites are available all year, the group campsites can only be booked from March through November.
