8 Places You Have to Visit With a Hammock

Check Out These Amazing Hammock Locations

This list comprises eight of our favorite spots to take a hammock. We may come out with more lists later on because the world is full of terrific hammocking locations.

That being said, the eight places on this list are pretty awesome and if you get the chance to throw up some straps and get hanging, definitely do it. Just be sure you check with park regulations to make sure you're in a hammock-friendly area.

Without further rambling, here are 8 places you have to visit with a hammock in the United States

1. Glacier National Park

This place is cold most of the time, but there are ways to still get out there and hang in the incomparable beauty of this natural treasure. Or just go during the short warm season in the summer. You won't regret it.

2. Green Mountains, Vermont

This location is absolutely breathtaking--like most of the spots we mention. The mountains of Vermont are easy to miss, being tucked away up in the northeast corner of the country. Our advice is not to miss them. Swing up there during the summer for some incredible scenery. 

3. Great Smoky Mountains

We're biased because we live and work within a few hours of the Smoky Mountains. That being said, there's no denying how breathtaking it is and the incredible, overwhelming spiritual connection you'll feel to the land when you get there. 

 4. Yellowstone National Park

Yellowstone is one of the most picturesque places in the world and a true natural treasure. It is at the top of many outdoor enthusiasts' list of must-visit places.

5. Hawk Ridge, Minnesota

Like some of the other places on this list, Minnesota has a pretty short summer. But if you can get up there to Hawk Ridge during the warmer months, it's well worth the trip. Seemingly endless forests of thick trees stretch out as far as the eye can see and is an awesome place to take your hammock for camping or just a day hike.

6. Shenandoah Valley, Virginia

A secret to those who don't know and a staple to backpackers, hikers, and campers, the Shenandoah Valley is home to some of the most beautiful vistas on the planet. It's the perfect place to string up your hammock and kick back.

7. Base of Mt. Ranier, Washington

This gem can be seen from downtown Seattle on a clear day. The majestic peak of Mt. Ranier makes for one incredible backdrop for hanging around in a hammock. 

Don't let the rumors about too much rain fool you. From spring through summer, this area gets plenty of sunshine and perfect mild temperatures for outdoor activities like hammocking.

8. Linville Falls, NC

The canyon that wraps around Linville Falls is one of the truly spectacular sights North Carolina has to offer. If you're in the area, load up your hammock in a small backpack for a little hike and make the journey to this beautiful gorge for a relaxing day of hanging around.
