By far on US territory the Kalalau Beach is one of the best camping areas. The cool thing about it that to reach it you will have to walk 11-mile rugged trail. This 1-mile long incredibly beautiful beach is surrounded by sheer, impossibly high cliffs. Behind this paradise is a dense jungle that protects anyone else but hikers and kayakers  to reach it. There is lots of vegetation and one can easily snack on fresh mangoes. If your dream was to shower in waterfalls this is the place. This spot truly deserves the 1-st position in best camping areas. You should know that there is a mandatory cost per person per night though.

There is one place Mississippi that astonishes with white quartz beaches and it is one of the Gulf’s last not so populated beaches. It is one of the best camping areas because of the lesser populated beaches. Something very important for this camping area is that it is a bit breezy, but bug free. It is a 14-mile long lagoon beach with a few lurking alligators.
