Leave your tent in the garage; instead, pack up the RV and head to the mountain for a relaxing retreat with all the luxuries of home. But, don't forget to bring your hiking boots and firewood because you won't be spending much time inside your cozy rig.
Where to Go: Scout Mountain Campground, Idaho—Open May to November
What to Do: This small campground provides one of the most scenic mountain vacations. Located in the Bannock Mountain Range, at 6,900 feet, you'll enjoy views of the surrounding mountain landscape as you trek along local trails. With only 23 other sites, you're sure to have a peaceful stay on this thickly forested mountainside.
Walk the scenic Scout Mountain Nature Trail, which loops the campground. Along the way, stop at the overlooks for photo-worthy views.
Bring your binoculars and look for a variety of bird species including the Western Scrub-Jay, Juniper Titmouse, the Mountain Bluebird and more.
Take a trip to the Cherry Springs Nature Area, less than 6 miles from the campground, where you can fish, hike, or just enjoy a picnic lunch.
Insider Tip: There are no hookups or dumps at this mountain campground, but there's a waste station in the town of Pocatello, where the campground is located.
