Tent camping is the best way to reenact the life of a cowboy: horseback riding, relaxing around the fire, and raiding nearby bear caves for more marshmallows. Sleep outside like an outlaw with today's Groupon: for $50, you get four consecutive or nonconsecutive nights of tent camping at your choice of more than 30 Thousand Trails in the Pacific Northwest area and California (a $100 value).
Thousand Trails beckons campers to the Pacific Northwest and California with more than 30 gated campgrounds nestled near the area's most illustrious attractions. For four nights, up to six campers can pitch their tents at any of the designated Thousand Trails campgrounds, including Yosemite Lakes, a campground sitting only 5 miles from the Yosemite National Park's west entrance, offering a wealth of activities nearby, such as swimming, fishing, and panning for golden raisins. The Pacific City campground attracts campers looking to crab, clam, or beachcomb the hairy sands of Cape Kiwanda. The Los Padres National Forest borders the Rancho Oso campground, providing a space for hikers to stretch their leggings. Other amenities at campgrounds include swimming pools, spas, and community centers with concerts, keeping campers entertained until it's time to share a pillow with the nearest caterpillar.
