Camping and boating with the family can be some of the best times of your lives no matter where you live.
There are so many activities for everyone, fishing, hiking, biking, backpacking, picnicking and nature watching.
There are no TV's, video games etc. Just quality bonding time you spend with your loved ones.
Sure it's a lot of work to set up a good campsite. With setting up the tent, gathering firewood. making sleeping arangements and such.
Just thinking back as a child myself sitting by the glow of the campfire roasting marshmallows making smors and telling scary stories really brings back good memories for me.
Children today just don't get the opportunity to get back to nature, most parents are too busy with their jobs and other daily duties to take the time to plan a weekend getaway outdoors.
My hat is off to you for wanting to spend this time with your family.
I Like camping during the mid spring, early summer and early fall times of the year.
Camping during the heat of summer is ok, but sleeping in 90 + degree temps with a high humidy is miserable for anyone young or old.
In the winter the temps can dip dangerously low, hypothermia can effect some in the group when temps get below freezing, so I would not recommend winter time outdoor camping no matter where you live.
Pretty much anytime is a good time for camping, the main thing is being with the ones you love and spending quality time with them listening and learning from all the things in nature going on all around you.
Best of luck and always be safe!
