Best Places to Camp for a Snowy Cozy Christmas


Now camping during the winter months might not be the first thing that comes to mind, but the truth is camping can be a really special way to have a cozy, snowy Christmas. However, due to the extreme temperatures, you’re probably going to need a bit more support to ensure that your camping experience is comfortable and safe. That’s why it is your best choice to find a cozy cabin to enjoy, to have that camping experience, while being warm and with modern amenities. Here are my top choices for the best places to camp for a snowy cozy Christmas:

1. Royal Gorge, Colorado
You want somewhere that’s scenic, and where it’s cold enough it’s almost a sure thing to snow on Christmas day. Christmas cabin rental at Royal Gorge is a great option because there are a number of cabins, meaning your group can rent out a few to accommodate any size of the group. These cabins come with all the modern fixtures you’d expect from luxury cabin accommodation, from a spa-style shower to a flat-screen tv, perfect for watching your favorite Christmas movies on. Colorado offers such lovely landscapes, and a good chance of snow, making it the perfect Christmas escape destination.

2. Lake Placid, New York
In December alone, Lake Placid sees an average of 23 inches of snow during the month of December alone, meaning if you’re wanting a guaranteed white Christmas, this is a great choice for you. There’s something quite special about watching the snowfall with the lake as a backdrop.

3. Jackson Hole, Wyoming
The temperatures really dip here during the month of December, which means there’s a good chance of snow and an even better chance that it will ‘stick’ if it happens, hopefully allowing you to have your perfect white Christmas. But due to the temperature drop, you’ll probably find it wise to choose camping accommodations that come with good heating.  This valley turns into a winter wonderland during the cooler months, so could be a great place to spend your Christmas holidays. 

4. Tahoe City, California
Tahoe is like something out of a fairy tale, that combined with snow makes for a very striking backdrop and a great camping location. Here you’ll find a gorgeous mountain resort, sitting cozy on top of the biggest alpine lake in North America. There’s also the highest number of ski resorts in the area, meaning if skiing is something you want to do in the winter months, this can be a great choice.

Heading away for Christmas is such an exciting adventure. Hopefully, these suggestions get you inspired for your next Christmas camping trip.
