Are you planning a trip? Why not take a minute and thinks about camping. There are often many camp sites along the route to your destination, so have some fun, get out the map and plan a fun filled camping trip.
You and your family can sit down around the table and map your route. Suppose there is a camp site about half way to your destination? Check it out. Many areas have wooded camp sites as well as many by a lake. You get to choose!
Where would the kids like to stay? How about the site that is wooded? Is it just around the bend from the lake? That would be great! It is the best of both worlds. You can go fishing and swimming. They may have paddle boats and canoes you can rent so you can play out on the lake. Oh my and a zip line? The kids would love that.
They may also have the restrooms and showers which is a must. And if animals are welcome, that would decide it, we are going camping.
Imagine packing your van with your tent and other gear. You won’t need a stove because you will be roasting hot dogs and making S’mores over an open fire.
But you take a small one anyway so you can make bacon and eggs in the morning. You will have your sleeping bags to stay toasty warm should the air at night cool off. Oh and remember your pillow.
When you arrive at the camp site, it’s better then you could have imagined. Everyone piles out of the van, ready to set up the tent but you decide to check out the lake first. There is beautiful white sand for as far as the eye can see.
The lake is clean and clear. To the far right you see where the boats and canoes are stored. You decide to take a stroll to the end of the dock to see if you can see some fish. The kids are thrilled at the amount of fish they can see swimming under the dock.
Then back up towards your camp site is a little store. You go in to see what they have. They sell things that you may have forgot, soap, toothbrushes and such. You need to get back to your site to set up your tent and gather some fire wood. Your vacation is going to be great!
