If you have very small children and want to introduce your passion for the great outdoors to them, then you are probably wondering where the best spots to take them to are. If you have already given them some push and pull wagons, then you also want to choose a destination that will be push wagon friendly. Fear not, young adventurers, because we have compiled some of the most exciting places to camp at all across the country for your next family camping trip!
- King’s Canyon & Sequoia National Park (King’s Canyon, California)
If you live in or are planning to visit California, then you will not want to miss out on the breathtaking scenery that King’s Canyon & Sequoia National Park has to offer. There are fourteen campgrounds to choose from, perfect for group camping. We especially love the Azalea Campground, a 3-and-a-half-mile-long campground within the Giant Grove area open seasonally from early November to mid-April, 24 hours a day. The mesmerizing evergreen trees will surely complete your appreciation of the scenery as you enjoy walking along the scenic paths. If you’re looking to visit during the kids’ next summer vacation, then we would recommend Dorst Creek Campground. While it stands at a high elevation level (6,800 feet), the land is pretty flat and makes for a good spot to bring your foldable wagon along. The campground was unfortunately closed during 2021, so we hope to see it come back next year!
- Klinks-Williams Lake Resort (Cheney, Washington)
This seasonal spot is open from April through September, so it is another vacation spot that is ideal for spring break or summer vacation. Located 21 miles from Spokane International Airport, it includes scenic lakes by the RV and tent-designated camping sites. If you’ve already taken a little hike, feel free to take a dip in the water or go kayaking with the family! You can also build a hammock in-between the trees for that classic vacation relaxation feel. You can also dine at Klink’s Lakeside Restaurant when you find yourself needing some more fuel to finish all that the resort has to offer!
- Big Bend Ranch State Park (Presidio, Texas)
This massive park is located right next to the Texas-Mexico border, stretching out an entire 23 miles, including the Chihuahuan Desert, the Madera Canyon, the Contrabando Movie Set, and so much more! The kids can grab a really cool Junior Ranger backpack for the road. You will have tons of fun playing in the dirt path and getting a load of the awesome scenery. It’s great for both biking and hiking, so if you’re looking to experience the best of what the Lone Star state has to offer, then this is your place.
- Brown County State Park (Nashville, Indiana)
We haven’t forgotten about you, midwesterners, because this camping site is one that’s high on our bucket list! Brown County State Park is complete with exalted campgrounds, log cabins, and the Abe Martin Lodge. You will definitely want to take your push and pull wagons out to the Buffalo Ridge, Taylor Ridge, and Raccoon Ridge Campgrounds while you take in the southern Indiana scenery. We also recommend checking out the Little Gem restaurant inside of the Abe Martin Lodge, open from 8 am to 8 pm daily. You definitely won’t want to miss out on a classic Hoosier-style meal!
- The Woods at Bear Creek (Truxton, New York)
If New York City isn’t your style, then you must at least check out mid or upstate New York, a haven for lovers of the great outdoors. This 750-acre campground is geared specifically for family-friendly fun. For over half a century, The Woods at Bear Creek has delighted guests with both sun and shaded areas, campfires, and scenic lake. If you are taking your child on their very first hiking or camping trip and you are traveling near the area, this is definitely recommended! You will surely make plenty of fun memories with your children and the rest of your family here! The campsite is seasonal and is open from May 1 to October 15 annually.
While there are countless great sites all over the country to choose from, it’s just simply impossible to list all of them! What are your favorite places to take your push and pull wagon? Let us know!
