At Backroads, the buzzword “staycation” means staying in North America for Deluxe Camping trips at renowned national parks.
Family Camping Trips in Yosemite, Grand Canyon, Banff and Jasper
Location, location, location: Backroads camping guests will enjoy scenic tent sites at national parks, including Yosemite, Grand Canyon, Yellowstone, Glacier, and Banff and Jasper in Canada. For that truly deluxe experience, trips are staffed with a minimum of three to five Trip Leaders, plus a Camp Assistant. Guests roll into camp to find spacious dome tents set up, their luggage inside and a plush sleeping bag laid out on an extra-thick sleeping pad.
“In the evening, as you sit chatting around the fire, you’ll inevitably hear someone say ‘You know, I didn’t really think I was a camping kind of person-but this is one of the best vacations I’ve ever had,’ ” said Backroads Founder and President Tom Hale. “It’s those comments that tell us we must be getting it right.”
Backroads handles all the cooking and cleaning chores so guests are free to relax and spend quality time with family, friends and like-minded active travelers. Camp chefs perform culinary magic, creating specialties infused with local, authentic flavors. In seafood-rich Maine, for instance, featured items include mussels, salmon, lobster and clams. While in Southwest canyon country, black beans, rice and plenty of salsa add regional spice.
On Backroads Deluxe Camping trips, no one goes home hungry-and most go home with recipe inspirations for their next cookout.
