Website names Missouri top state for camping in U.S. | Community Spirit
(KFVS) - Missouri has been named the top state for camping in the United States.
About.com announced the results Friday of their annual Readers' Choice Award for Favorite State for Camping, and Missouri took top honors with the website's gold award. Other states that placed include: Montana with the silver award and Colorado with the bronze award.
“The First Lady and I are proud that Missouri has been selected as a renowned camping destination,” Gov. Nixon said. “Missouri is the perfect place to enjoy the great outdoors, so plan to experience our quiet hills, deep woodlands, wide open prairies, and clear Ozark streams on your next camping adventure, and you'll see why the readers picked Missouri as their favorite camping state."
Missouri Division of Tourism Director Katie Steele Danner credited Missouri’s State Parks and privately-held campgrounds for helping Missouri secure the top spot on About.com’s Readers’ Choice Awards.
