About 1,700 million years old land, the forest is so huge it covers 1.75 million acres. But to go seriously back in time, head toward Mt. Pinos near Frazier Park. These mountain trails will take you to the first days of California’s emergence from the sea. While many of the campgrounds and picnic areas are easily reached by vehicle, much of the forest is remote and unroaded. And this is the reason enough for the campers seeking adventure.

Isle Royale National Park, Michigan
It’s the largest island in Lake Superior, formed as a result of North America almost splitting in two about a billion years ago, making it one of the ancient campsites. This campers’ paradise is a land mostly containing water. And although it is a national park, you won’t find many crowds while you are social distancing. Its secluded environment makes it the perfect location for visitors to connect with the beauty around it.

It takes a day of hiking to get to this campground at the centre of Cathedral Provincial Park, in the Cascade Mountains west of B.C.’s Okanagan. So its not a place you can easily plan to go. Four of the park’s lakes were stocked with trout in the 1930s. If you don’t feel like hiking in, you can arrange to hitch a ride to the centre of the park on a shuttle operated by Cathedral Lake Lodge.

Flaming Gorge National Recreation Area, Utah
The red ancient rocks of Flaming Gorge are a 700-million-year-old is one of the spectacular campsites. The other amazing thing is that this area is well known for its fossils, and right next door is Dinosaur National Monument. In addition to camping, Flaming Gorge is a scenic playground for boating, waterskiing, windsurfing, and fishing.
City of Rocks National Reserve, Idaho
With over 1,000 climbing routes, each winds up cliffs and walls from 28 million to 2.5 billion years old. Also called “Silent City of Rocks”, it often attracts rock climbers, campers, hikers, hunters, and those with the spirit of adventure. There’s inspirational scenery, exceptional opportunities for geologic study, and remnants of the Old West awaiting your discovery.
Upper Sioux Agency State Park, Minnesota
Minnesota lays claim to the world’s oldest rock at 3.8 billion years old. Established in 1963, the park preserves and interprets the remains of the old Agency site. The park covers 1,280 acres and offers diversity: open prairie knolls, bluffs, and cool, wooded slopes. Yellow Medicine River Campground is right on the banks of the eponymous river, and here you can fish for walleye and catfish, spot pelicans and herons, or hike through the forests.
