Think you can’t afford a vacation this year? Think again. Nothing is as cheap and rewarding as camping at National Parks. Check specific parks for camping fees and permit requirements but they are typically well under $20 a night and very well maintained. All you have to do is get there! And with gas prices down, it’s as cheap as a vacation can be. You can pack your own food and sleep under the stars every night. If you plan on hitting more than one park this year, you can sign up for an annual pass that will get you into all of the parks. National Parks are fabulous and so many Americans don’t take advantage of them. So get out there and explore!
