Canada is the best country for camping, according to our research. It has the highest potential for stargazing, the most national parks, low pollution, low risk of natural disasters and beautiful landscapes. Australia and New Zealand also have camping systems similar to KOA, offering caravan sites and cozy accommodation options. Big4 Holiday Parks has 180 locations across Australia.
Australians love their “Bush Tucker”, an endearing term for easy-to-prepare comfort foods they prepare while camping. Moisten, a hearty soda bread baked on the embers, is a favorite. A disadvantage of camping in Australia is that there can be long distances between gas stations, grocery stores and other services. Firewood is scarce in the Outback.
Forget sharing a 2-person tent with six friends at a music festival or helping your father set up the tent in the backyard. These 10 countries are the best camping destination for those who really want to get back to nature: Canada, New Zealand, Australia, Iceland, India, Kyrgyzstan, USA, Sweden, Norway and Finland. In Canada, camping is allowed on almost all public land as part of its “free camping” system. Banff National Park in Alberta is one of the most popular places for camping in Canada with more than 2,500 campsites spread over its 6,641 square kilometers.
Rocky Mountain National Park in British Columbia and Algonquin Provincial Park in Ontario are also great places to camp. In the US, Grand Canyon National Park in Arizona has five different campgrounds spread over its 277 miles of incredible beauty. Yosemite National Park in California has more than 13 campsites spread across its 1,169 square miles of desert. The Appalachian Trail is one of the most iconic trails in the US and extends for 2,189 miles in 14 states.
Sweden has some of the most beautiful natural areas in Europe and it's no surprise that it also allows camping in wild areas as long as you comply with the “Allemansrätten” law (the right of public access). The Vindelfjällen nature reserve in Swedish Lapland is an ideal place for camping in wild areas with more than 2,400 km2 and home to wildlife and hiking trails. Kosterhavet National Park in western Sweden is also an ideal place for camping with its incredible seascapes, colorful reefs and an abundance of birds. The Värmlands Nature Reserve is another great destination for camping with its rolling hills, pine forests and numerous lakes.
Like Sweden, Norway also has the Allemansrätten law which legalizes camping wherever you want as long as you follow certain guidelines. Wild camping is a fantastic way to explore nature and respect the environment. Whether it's Canada, USA, Sweden, Norway or New Zealand - there are many places where you can legally camp in nature without fear of breaking any laws or regulations. Most of the hiking and camping you'll be doing in Kyrgyzstan will take place at an altitude of 3000 m or more - so make sure you prepare properly and know local laws before embarking on your adventure! Camping is a great way to explore nature and experience unique adventures with family and friends - so why not consider going camping in one of these incredible countries?.
