During the 1950s and 1960s, family camping was one of the most popular summertime activities for the average, suburban American family. In response to its popularity the establishment of hundreds of RV parks, campground, cabin rentals, and other types of camping vacation rentals made it easy to find a park suitable for any camper.
Over the next couple decades, the popularity of camping began to wane considerably. Yet, die hard campers continued to frequent America’s parks and campgrounds from coast to coast and border to border, all year round. In fact, the average camper goes camping five times per years, and travels nearly 200 miles before arriving at his or her camping destination.
Whether families prefer RV camping or cabin camping, the campfire is always one of the most fun and exciting parts of the trip. Sure, hiking, swimming, and other outdoor activities are enjoyable ways for family members to connect, but camping is best once the sun goes down. Besides, the fire actually allows campers to prepare their favorite camping foods, which are smores an hot dogs, respectively.
The most recent American tourism numbers show that camping is in the midst of a renaissance. Renewed interest in everything from RV camping to wilderness camping has inspired 3 million more people to go camping between 2010 and 2012. Given the many excellent camping facilities located across the United States and Canada, there is no better time than the present to rediscover the joys of camping.
