Finding camping sites in no state parks might be a tricky and tedious thing to do, but it can be done. This is because you can get all the perks of being in a state park without actually camping in one if you choose the right camping park. Depending on where you’re camping, you can find a number of parks that are not state run but offer a number of amenities and activities nearby.
- Barton Flats in San Bernardino, CA. Nestled in beautiful woods, and harboring close to 60 camping sites Barton Flats offers a lot to their campers. Pets are allowed and they have a wilderness area for guests. Hike along their trails, and see wildlife during your stay.
- Pickle Gulch in Roosevelt, CO. This is a group campground. The campers must have fifteen people or more for reservations. The sites are large and provide the campers with a fire ring, bathrooms, and water during their stay. There are tennis courts, horseshoe rings, and picnic tables across the campgrounds for the camper’s enjoyment.
- Juniper Springs Rec Area in Silver Springs, FL. None of the campsites have electricity, but they are shaded. One of the biggest attractions at this campground is the bears and raccoons that frequent the area. All food must be kept in sealed containers. They offer more than fifteen amenities in their park for campers such as picnicking, courts, playgrounds, and swimming areas.
