Pair Your Adventure: Five Weekend Camping Trips

Summer is here and the great outdoors beckon. Take heed. With ideal weather and optimal stargazing, it’s time to head out for some fresh air. Grab your tent, gas up the RV and lace up your hiking shoes.  Ahead, five US wilderness adventures to pair with your easy-to-tote Diamond and Sofia canned wines and please, don’t forget those s’mores provisions.

Joshua Tree National Park
Where: Joshua Tree, California.
With over 800,000 acres of national park including its namesake Joshua trees, check out this other-worldly terrain with a sprawl of nine campgrounds to pitch a tent or park your RV.  Wake up early for the sunrise and have your camera ready; the light frames the trees in stunning ways. Then get at it: there’s plenty of mountain biking and hiking along the rugged terrain and for the adventure set, rock climbing among the boulders. Pair Your Adventure: Diamond Collection Chardonnay Can

Acadia National Park
Where: Maine
Situated along the Atlantic Coast, you’ll find idyllic natural beauty and surrounded by charming villages. Unload your home-away-from-home on Mount Desert Island or the newish Schoodic Peninsula. For water enthusiasts, head out in a sea kayak and if you want to be on foot, connect on the hiking trails and gravel-surfaced bike paths. In the evenings, relax by the fire and forget your troubles. Pair Your Adventure: Diamond Collection Pinot Grigio Can

Crater Lake National Park
Where: Oregon
To fully appreciate Oregon’s bright blue water, rarified air and 2,000-foot cliffs, head to this park nestled in the Cascade Mountains. The pristine lake, one of the cleanest in the country, doubles as a lovely spread for quiet reflection. In the days, keep yourself occupied on the various trails, including the short 2.5 mile stroll.  The wildflower filled Mount Scott Trail gives stellar views of water below (note: on a good day, you can see as far as 100 miles). At night, gather around bonfires with some good camp yarns. Pair Your Adventure: Diamond Sauvignon Blanc Can

Arches National Park
Where: Utah
On the cusp of Moab, Utah and inside Glacier National Park, you’ll find geography from jagged peaks, green forest and crystal clear lakes.  Sightseeing? Rise to the high-elevation campground of Devils Garden Compound (don’t worry, the name isn’t as it sounds) and if you’re in the mood to drive, check out the stretch called Park Avenue. A twilight stroll affords views of a galaxy far-far-away. Pair Your Adventure:  Sofia Brut Rosé Mini

Shenandoah National Park
Where: Viriginia
Just beyond the Blue Ridge Parkway, you’ll discover vast acreage from steep ridges to rocky slopes and tumbling vistas. There’s a range of activity too: over 500 miles of hiking trails, ample lakes where trout fishers cast their nets, horseback riding and guided walks with a naturalist looking at native flora and fauna. Come night, dim your lanterns and gaze at the glittering sky. Pair Your Adventure Sofia Blanc de Blancs Mini
