Plenty of people enjoy camping and general outdoor activities!
You can choose to go camping at just about any place, especially in America. You'll find this country provides tremendous opportunities to make the most of a camping experience, in the hills, in the mountains, across the ocean, on the beach and more.
My favorite place to go camping is in North Florida where you can find some very large tourist areas, especially during the summer season. I would not recommend going there during the holiday months, unless you want to pay higher rates and see crowds of people.
But in less busier times of the year, you actually have the place to yourself, with just the locals for company. During this time, camping can be a very enjoyable experience, especially if you bring the whole family.
Why limit the fun to just yourself? I recommend splitting the cost on everything when you plan a camping and general outdoor vacation. This includes food, your accommodation, gas, you name it.
By splitting the cost, you pay less money to do more things. In the end you will not be limited to your own financial means.
To make the experience even more enjoyable, try to forget all about the modern world. Unless you're in fear of an emergency situation turn your cell phone off. Try doing without a microwave, or a stove even.
There's nothing like camping under the stars and roasting marshmallows over a fire. This is what it is all about, getting out of the house and getting in touch with nature, that's what the camping experience is all about.
So, turn off the TV, grab a book, light the fire, and tell some stories.
Here are the things you may want to consider when camping in the mountains …
There are lots of tourist attractions in the Rockies. Do some mountain climbing yourself and make sure when you are camping in mountains to bring the right equipment.
Safety should always come first and you should never go anywhere by yourself. Always have a guide when you're venturing into places that you're not familiar with.
And furthermore, always let people know where you are going to be. The last thing you want, is to have an accident and does not have anyone know where you are.
You may want to bring a GPS device with you just in case. No matter what, always carry lots of water because, if you get lost, and you get dehydrated, this could present a very dangerous situation.
Just remember, it's good to have a good time but it's more important to be safe when camping. Bring a map of the area and a compass. If nothing else you need a good sense of direction.
Now, what are you waiting for? Have fun and go camping!
