Love Longleaf, Love to Camp? Check out NWF’s Blog!
The Southeastern United States is full of spectacular places to camp; if you are curious about where to go camping, consider pitching your tent in the richest forest that the U.S. has to offer—the Longleaf Pine!
Tiffany Woods, Senior Coordinator for the National Wildlife Federation (NWF) Southeast Forest Program, has created a blog that details various longleaf camping venues as part of NWF’s annual “Great American Campout” initiative. Camping provides the tremendous opportunity to connect people with the outdoors and wildlife. Longleaf pine forests are special too; only approximately 5% of longleaf forests remain due to development and other factors. NWF has compiled a sample list of public lands where you can find longleaf pine in its historic and natural range—from the eastern plains of Texas to Florida and all the way up to the Carolinas.
