Comfortable Camping Trips

There are many ways to explore the great outdoors, and you don’t need to join a rugged backcountry expedition to see the best of the American West! Try a comfortable camping trip!

Camping has a few inherent discomforts to overcome, but with proper gear, thorough planning, and a positive attitude there is a magic to be found while sleeping under the stars. Spend 4 or 5 days waking up in a warm sleeping bag to the smell of pine forests and fresh-brewed coffee, as the sun creeps up. Watch the sunshine pour down towering canyon walls in a comfortable setting that has you relaxed and safe on one of our guided hiking and camping trips.

Camping With AOA

AOA’s comfortable camping trips visit national parks and monuments all over the Southwest. We take care of all the details that can be difficult to get right on your average camping trip by providing a comprehensive basecamp set-up with a full kitchen, fresh three-course meals, cozy camp chairs, oversized tents, extra-thick sleeping pads, sleeping bags rated properly for the climate, and more. Sometimes the tent and sleep set-up is an optional rental item so you can choose to bring your own if you prefer, but we’re here to answer any questions you have about appropriate camping gear.
