Go get your pitchforks and torches. We have some clowns to go after.

A recent article written by one of our colleagues, Jaci Bjorne, who by the way is NOT a clown, wrote about which National Parks are the best to camp at (read below). She took data from USA Today to determine the best parks.

There was only one Montana National Park to make the list: Yellowstone. Glacier National Park did not make it...

Yet somehow the top spot on the list was Chickasaw National Recreation Area in south-central Oklahoma.


Granted, I don't know much about Chickasaw National Recreation Area, but how in the heck is Chickasaw a better spot to camp than Glacier National Park? Glacier is a fantasyland that has me speechless every time I visit.

This is Lincoln Bridge at Chickasaw National Recreation Area. It's fine. It's cool enough but to say this is the best park to camp at in the entire country is ludicrous. It's preposterous, and it's just downright wrong.

But there is a silver lining in all of this. Any reader outside of Montana will see Chickasaw National Recreation Area and they'll want to travel to Oklahoma instead of clogging up Going-to-the-Sun Road.

Good riddance! Get out of here.

Bryce Canyon, Grand Teton, Badlands and Great Smoky Mountains all made the list as well.
