This summer enjoy a family camping trip.
Skip the high priced hotels and theme parks. Stretch your legs and get out and enjoy nature. Government and private run camp grounds and camp sites are a fraction of the cost of a hotel stay.
All you need is some basic camping gear and a sense of adventure.
Gather up a group of friends.
Make it a weekend get away with just the family or plan a week long camping trip with friends. Or if you are short on time plan a hike and a single over night camp with your spouse.
What to do once you get there?
Your options are endless. We like to camp by the lake so the kids can go swimming, boating and fishing. You can go hiking, biking, geocaching and so much more. Or you can simple relax by the camp fire or take a snooze in the hammock.
Camping is what you make of it. Pack a deck of cards, some binoculars, or a good book.
Where to go and when.
Note that holiday weekends usually book up fast. It really doesn’t matter where you go. You could camp out in your own back yard or the local private camp ground or even off in the forest.
Your options are endless, just ensure you have the right equipment and the right to camp.
Camping Pack List:
- Folding Table
- Clothes & Toiletries
Beyond the basics.
Are you going for a bike ride or taking the boat out? Is this a fishing and camping trip? Or just a simple overnighter with friends. Where you go and what you do will determine the extras you need to pack.
Get out and enjoy the great outdoors.
