When it is time to make vacation plans, there are those that know exactly what they are going to do: go camping!
There is something to be said about sleeping in the outdoors with the sky so full of stars above you.
Sitting around the campfire, smelling the aromas so unique to the camping experience is something that many people can’t wait to do.
Getting in touch with the natural elements is the best way to strengthen ourselves.
The night wraps its velvet black arms around you and you can hear the voices of the wild. Getting away from civilization is restorative to the soul and allows one to reconnect with their true selves.
Vacation on the Cheap
Camping spots are nowhere near as expensive as a hotel room or a vacation cottage. Most of your dining is done around the campfire with supplies you brought from home.
Entertainment usually consists of hanging outdoors and doing camper-like things such as hiking, fishing, swimming and exploring the area around you.
Evenings are typically spent with everyone gathered around smelling the wood smoke from a crackling fire, roasting hotdogs or marshmallows and just enjoying being where they are. Tenters have it even cheaper than those with RV’s and pop-ups. Not to mention the fact that there are a variety of spots where you can camp absolutely free.
Following Your Heart’s Desires
Every veteran camper knows that there is no end to the possibilities as to where you might camp out. Perhaps you love the sea; you can indulge in ocean camping or freshwater lakes, streams and rivers.
Mountains are your thing? You can find any number of excellent camping spots. Canyons, deserts, hills and dales, wherever your heart’s desire wants to take you on your camping trip is easily found.
Bring the Whole Gang
Not only can you invite friends, family and anyone else that has a tent and willing to travel, pets are often allowed on camping trips. They enjoy being in the great outdoors as much as their humans and no money has to be spent on petsitting services or kennels.
As long as you have well behaved pets, you can find any number of camping grounds that will allow your furry friends to accompany you on your trip.
These are just a few of the reasons that people love camping. If you ask any camper, each one will have different reasons but what they all have in common is a love of the outdoors and being a part of nature.
