Some things just belong together ... peanut butter and jelly, Batman and Robin, Airbnb and National Parks. OK, so maybe "Airbnb and National Parks" doesn't have quite the same ring to it as some of the world's more famous duos, but a new partnership between the two is clearly a match made in heaven.

The collaboration between the rental site and the National Park Foundation will make it easier for travelers to find accommodations at 10 National Parks through dedicated landing pages (In addition to the nine parks featured here, there is also a page for the Grand Canyon). What's great about this is that when you're going to a majestic national park, how wonderful it is to swap cookie-cutter lodging for something offbeat and enchanting, like a converted sheep herder wagon or a tipi.

We have a sneak peek here at nine of the places available for rent; let the wanderlust begin! First up, a luxe camp site with a view.

1. Olympic National Park: Best View Luxury Camping

How about a 360-degree views of downtown Port Angeles, the Strait of Juan de Fuca, Sequim Bay, Dungeness, Vancouver Island, and Mount Baker? Situated on seven acres of private land, this is an intimate experience with the convenience of being in town. Best for two people but room on the floor for more. From the listing:

The quiet of the woods 10 minutes from downtown means a relaxing visit and unique experience. Enjoy local berries and wildlife viewing. Use the binoculars to check out the ships in the harbor or various birds in the area. A comfy full size bed with down comforters and wool Pendleton blankets and solar lights. Guests have access to the berries within the 7 acres: blackberries, raspberries, elderberries, and huckleberries.
