Spotted in the news: Most Amazing Places for Camping in the National Parks


Only 12 miles from the mainland, Anacapa Island is the most accessible of California’s Channel Islands. The chain of three tiny islets is composed of eroded volcanic rock, meaning you’ll find steep sea cliffs, natural bridges and sea caves in place of sandy beaches. From the seven campsites on the east islet, you can access a surprisingly diverse landscape across the islands’ combined 700 acres.
