If summer seems like it is passing you by, take a little time to discover a destination just down the road or beyond the horizon.  Here are a few tips for finding places that are closer than you think.  

Discover new destinations and consider mid-week visits

Ok, we know what you are thinking.  The places you want to visit are already booked and have been for months.  We get it; the competition for popular locations is fierce.  For now, think about discovering a new destination that may have availability when you are able to visit.

Here are a few campgrounds we found near six large cities with availability throughout the rest of the summer, especially midweek and first-come, first-serve options.  Keep in mind that many campgrounds in the West are imposing fire restrictions, so know before you go what fire and smoke conditions may impact your visit.
