Yukon Trails, WI

On August 25, 1916, then President Woodrow Wilson officially created our National Parks Service. This month, TrailBlazer honors our National Parks across the country as they celebrate 100 years. For those of us who have had the privilege to visit any one of our 59 national parks, I am sure we would all agree that we are very fortunate to have a service that is dedicated to the preservation of these parks.

From a visit to Acadia National Park in picturesque Bar Harbor, Maine, where you will find one of the most beautiful sunrises on top of Cadillac Mountain, to gazing up at a giant Sequoia tree in Californiaís Sequoia National Park, you are sure to be awestruck by our countryís beautiful landscape.

As I view all of the #100DaysofCamping images being shared by our members and guests, I have to admit I feel very proud of the lifestyle we provide. The combination of great locations and the dedication of our on site teams is truly the backbone of Thousand Trails. Not to mention our members and guests who knew right along that they were on to something.

As we enter the dog days of summer, embrace opportunities for exploration and adventure by discovering new landscapes, taking on another National Park and blazing your own trail. I am certain that along the way you will find yourself in one of your favorite Thousand Trails locations, creating memories that will last a lifetime.

Although we arenít celebrating 100 years just yet, I am proud I can say that for over 45 years Thousand Trails has been dedicated to providing so many families with a slice of our own paradise. So, Get Out and Camp and donít forget to keep sharing those photos on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram using #100DaysofCamping or upload to
