Top 15 Family Campgrounds
Splash in the ocean, wade in a lake, ride a bike, or paddle a kayak—these sites will keep kids and parents happy for days
ArizonaBog Springs Campground, Madera Canyon, Coronado National Forest This canyon south of Tucson is hummingbird central in springtime, when swarms of them pause here during their annual migration. And it offers year-round opportunities for kids to marvel at other wildlife: Turkey, deer, and waterfowl congregate around Bog Springs’s 13 mostly oak-shaded sites, which sit near a lush riparian zone. Summer rain showers trigger bursts of butterflies, and a short nature trail winds through critter-spotting zones. $10; $5 park entry; vault toilets; no reservations; fs.usda.gov.
