3 Ideas On How To Make Your Camping Trip More Interesting

Camping, especially family camping, is one of the most popular past-times in America. According to surveys done, the overwhelming majority of campers say that they are planning an average of 4.9 camping trips, with two-thirds planning three or more trips. These family camping trips could be anything from tent camping in Wisconsin campgrounds to staying in a nice cabin at our Tennessee campgrounds.

Whether it be a Tennessee campgrounds or the woods in the middle of New York, camp with style, and make it fun! Below, find some ideas on how to make camping a little more creative and adventurous for the average camper:

    1. Take It Further Off The TrailIf you have strong legs and a big enough backpack, you can take pretty much whatever you want on a backpacking trip. You typically don’t have to go far to get some peace and quiet while you are camping at one of our parks. Just two or three miles down a trail can get you a good spot that can bring you some peace.

      So take a mountain bike, a kayak, or just a hike to somewhere new and exciting.

    2. Camp On a Weekday This is something few people consider, but taking a mid-week trip can restore you and get you focused for the upcoming weeks. Just pack up, drive out, and set up for the night around dinner.

      Weekday camping can be a fun way to relax and spend your evenings during the week. And, in most cases, the parks will be less filled.

    3. Don’t Eat Freeze-DriedYou don’t have to freeze your food. Bring some fun and interesting foods to cook and enjoy. Different types of cheeses, grapes, chips and even sauces are a great way to mix it up and enjoy delicious foods during your camping trips.

These are just some ideas to make your camping trip more interesting, so what are you waiting for! Make your reservations today at one of our great parks.
