With many folks throughout the country currently experiencing blizzard warnings and storm watches, it’s time to set our eyes on spring break. And no matter if you’re after sandy white beaches or a woodsy getaway, there’s a campsite out there for you. Now is the time to get booking, though, as spots get snapped up quickly around holidays. According to Campspot’s latest report—which is based on their marketplace search data—the most popular destination for camping this spring break is Florida, with the number one and two spots being in Daytona and Oxford. But the West has plenty in the top 10, too.

In third place is Moab, Utah, which boasts access to both Arches and Canyonlands National Parks. The options for outdoor adventures are seemingly endless in this corner of the world, from stand-up paddling along the Colorado River to hiking, canyoneering, and mountain biking while taking in the signature ochre rock formations. A favorite spot to park for Campspot users in Utah is the Portal RV Resort and Campground, a luxury RV resort that offers the necessary amenities for travelers like hookups and showers.

If Salt Lake City, Utah is more your speed, you’re not alone. SLC clocked in fourth place, with average daily rates around $40.

“Surrounded by the Great Salt Lake and the Wasatch Range, Salt Lake City is a few hours’ drive to more than 20 national parks and monuments sites, zoos, and parks, making it the perfect summer break camp for the whole family,” says Campspot. The most popular campsite on their platform is Sun Outdoors Salt Lake City, which includes a pool, life-size board games, BBQ grills, and Surrey bikes for exploring the area.

Spots 8 and 9, Friant in Fresno County and Santa Barbara are also excellent options for those who are California dreaming on these winter days. Arizona made the cut too, with Phoenix and Tuscon being ranked at numbers 13 and 14 respectively, which is no surprise given the access to natural beauty of locals like the Grand Canyon, the red rocks of Sedona, and the Sonoran Desert. Plus, spring is the ideal time to visit before these desert gems start scorching in the summer heat.

So, book before it’s too late and give yourself something to look forward to on these last few snow days of the season.
