June marks National Camping Month so there's no better time to plan an outdoor adventure! Bring friends, family, and your pup along to enjoy the beauty of nature and find peace among the local flora and fauna.
Five times more people experienced their first camping trip in 2020 than 2019, according to the KOA. COVID-19 limited traditional accommodations, encouraging many people's first foray into outdoor living. Unfortunately there are few cannabis-friendly campgrounds. That's why we've assembled a list of 11 camping spots for cannabis lovers where you can enjoy a dab, joint, or edible while basking in the sun among the wildflowers.
