Vacations can be a nightmare, even for the most prolific planner and fun loving family. The long lines at the theme parks, hotel rules, and dangerous crowds. Those problems can be worse for parents with hyper or small children. When my kids were small, we discovered state campgrounds. I know, I know; camping yuck. Right? Not so much anymore.

For decades, the forestry department has been working diligently to bring modern conveniences to the outdoors. Everything from public showers to rental cabins. And many states provide discounts to disabled people or veterans with disabilities. But you’ll need proof of disability. The National Park Service also has a website dedicated to finding handicap friendly parks. I love their mission statement. They are committed to making the same facilities, services, programs, and employment available to visitors and employees as non-disabled people enjoy. While exploring the NPS website I found several, different passes and the opportunity to purchase them. US National Parks are free to military personnel; other passes vary in cost.
There’s also to explore other opportunities. You can obtain information about various parks—including warnings—learn about special use permits such as weddings, and reserve a spot and plan a trip. There’s also useful information about the parks such as what to expect and see, special events, and the history of the parks.
