Some Of The World’s Best Camping Spots

It’s impossible to pick out a definitive list of the best places to camp in the world, but the team at LOOK Insurance have attempted to find some of the world’s most awesome locations. Not all of them will be suitable for you to take your touring caravan to, of course, but if you love the idea of getting away from it all and being surrounded by the beauty of nature, none of these locations will disappoint.

Lake District, Cumbria, UK

The Lake District is one of the most beautiful regions in England. It is tailor-made for tourism, with its collection of freshwater lakes and hills and mountains to climb and hike. It has been a national park since 1951 and is the largest in England and Wales. Winter or summer, this is a great place to come for hiking and walking in beautiful and dramatic countryside. Campsites abound, from small farm sites through to ones that have all the facilities you could ever think of.

Blue Mountains National Park, NSW, Australia

Not too far from Sydney, you’ll find the Blue Mountains National Park where there’s a blue haze everywhere thanks to the presence of so many Eucalyptus trees. This is a great location for rock climbing and hiking with amazing views in all directions, jagged cliffs and beautiful waterfalls. There’s a range of different campsites within the park.

Haleakala National Park, Maui, Hawaii

This national park has the Haleakala volcano as its focal point. It’s a great location for watching the sunrise and stargazing at night. There are waterfalls in the park too, in the rainforest region of Kipahulu. Don’t miss out on swimming in the pools of Ohe’o while you’re camping in the park.

Maasai Mara National Reserve, Kenya

This is one camping trip where you might be better off booking camping as part of a package deal that comes with safaris and meals included. You’ll be sharing the reserve with big cats, zebras, gazelles and giraffes, so you might appreciate the safety factor of being with guides who are familiar with the territory.

Glacier National Park, Montana

In this national park that straddles the US-Canada border and includes two mountain ranges, there’s a huge amount to see, including hundreds of lakes and an amazing selection of plants and wildlife. You’ll need to reserve a camping spot in advance as the reservation system is on a first-come, first-served basis. As well as being able to fish here, there are more than 700 miles of hiking trails to explore.

Denali National Park, Alaska

If you really want a camping experience where you’ve got away from it all, head to Denali National Park. There are seven campsites to choose from in the park, each of which gives you access to beautiful countryside with alpine forests, crystal clear rivers and lakes and glacial mountain ranges. You’ll have the chance to see all kinds of wildlife, including black bears, moose, marmots and wolves.

Plitvice Lakes National Park, Croatia

This nature reserve in Croatia has UNESCO World Heritage status, thanks to its stunning scenery. Here you’ll find 16 of the most beautiful turquoise lakes in the world that are interconnected with waterfalls and cascades. You can camp here, but you’re not allowed to swim in the lakes or waterfalls – they are protected to retain the purity of the water.
