    Do you like Camping? What does it mean to you?

    I am going to be writing a hub about camping, and I am wondering what most people feel is there idea of camping. Do you prefer alone in the Wild in a tent? At a state, or public campground? Or, maybe a lavish or cheap private campground? And, how do you camp? Do you use a tent? Sleep in your car, or do you take along a trailer or motor home. Some people belong to seasonal campgrounds. Some even have site homes or cabins. What type are you? I am the seasonal camper. The photo is of a rented cabin, but I usually tent.

    I am an RV camper, and enjoy spending months at a time camping in National Parks, on BLM land, in National Forests and other places that are off the beaten path. Our favorite camping experiences are boondocking in the deserts of Arizona, California and Nevada or finding inexpensive places near lakes and oceans.  I've written many articles about the befefits of RVing on and off the grid.

    brimancandy- Yep! I love Camping,and have been doing it on and off over the last 40+ years. I even wrote a book for campers that is on Amazon called Dons RV Info.
    We evolved over the years from tent camping when our Kids were young to Tag-Along campers  and finally we are Motorhome campers.
    WE loved each stage and type of camping as we got older and our desires changed, but whichever you pick, it is all Good!

    I love camping. By camping I mean hike a few miles with a backpack until reaching a decent spot to set up camp. Before I had children I use to love hiking and camping on the AT. Now that I have children my camping trips are less frequent. I do try to take them on a good hike and camp trip once a year. Often in the summer we will camp at state parks just for the added benefits for the children.

    Tent living is proper living! smile I love camping!!! I never went camping with the folks as a child but was introduced to the pleasures of tents and simple living by my fiance last year. We went camping in the sand dunes just beyond a beautiful beach on the Welsh coast in an area called the Gower.... awesome!! We also camped at a music festival in Wales called the Green Man festival which was damned cool too (if wet). I wrote a hub about the Wales trip but haven't got around to writing about The Green Man - thanks for the reminder! smile

    Camping is about family, spending time with each other with no distractions of electronics, internet, or phone.  My family will pack up the truck with supplies and a tent and spend a few days out in the wilderness, hiking, fishing, sitting around a camp fire roasting S'mores, playing games and just spending time as a family.  see my hub for a printable check list. http://t.co/yyjcfndY

    Yes I enjoy camping very much. It brings back both memories from childhood, and not so good memories from my Army days.

    I love camping! We tent camp at campgrounds throughout the year, some on our own, some with friends, or with Scouts. Here in Florida, we tend to camp mostly from Oct - May because the summer months are way too hot to be sleeping in a tent!

    i did camping one month ago,, it was govt. run camp in Himachal Pradesh, India near capital Shimla,,, and before it it was in Rishikesh on the banks of River Ganga,, i loved everything about it,, cities are so polluted here that on particular day it is hard to spot Stars in the sky.. but doing camping in a place away from city which is cut from the buzz of the town,, it FEELS really good, and now i have developed a permanent desire for camping and looking to go out in the woods again...
