The Best Camping Spots in Nevada & Pennsylvania

Nevada

The loop trip from Las Vegas to Zion National Park, both rims of Grand Canyon and a native tribe reservation in Arizona is a must when you plan an adventure in this area. One of the most spectacular and interesting places on Earth to see should not be missed. You will find multiple amazing campgrounds on the way and get a chance to visit the Hoover Dam on your way back to Las Vegas. Rent the DROPLET lightweight trailer at our new location in Nevada and explore the following magical places.

Zion National Park

Also along the river, partly through deep chasms, is Zion Narrows wading hike.

Pennsylvania

Although Pennsylvania is not well known for its camping spots, it surely is worth exploring further. Our new DROPLET rental location in Doylestown is just a five hours drive away from the campgrounds of the Allegheny Mountains. Visit these hidden gems of the East Coast in comfort and style with the DROPLET trailer.

The Alleghenies

The Alleghenies is a six-county region that is spread across south-central Pennsylvania. This long and narrow region follows the Allegheny Mountains and is a fantastic spot for those that love sports, transportation history, and the outdoors. The northern reaches of the region are sometimes considered part of the Pennsylvania Wilds since they are the southernmost portion of the forests that cover much of the northern area of the state.
