The best way to get to know a national park is to camp in one, say authors Renee and Matthew Hahnel, who took a seven-month road trip to research their book “Roaming America: Exploring All the National Parks!” (Lannoo Publishers)
The couple, originally from Australia, lived in a van during their trip and were amazed by the low-cost camping options they found in most parks.
“You’re down by a river. You have a mountain view, you’re in a beautiful setting,” says Renee. Many campsites can be reserved through the recreation,gov website, and although some spots are held for walk-in visitors, they’re often claimed early in the morning.
The Hahnels share some of their favorites with USA TODAY.
