Summer is on its way and the warm weather means that thousands of families across the USA will be bringing out their tents, tarps, folding chairs, camping stoves, fishing rods, and sleeping bags.
The summer camping holiday is somewhat of an American family tradition which is celebrated on every long weekend and school break of the year.
There is nothing quite like the experience of eating hot dogs roasted over an open fire, making smores, telling ghost stories and falling asleep in the peaceful silence of the forest.
Camping is a great way to spend a holiday with your family. Camping sites are cheaper than motels, you can cook your own food and the kids will love playing in the forest and swimming in the lake.
Camping can also be a romantic way to spend a getaway with your sweetheart, as you take scenic walks together and cuddle by a roaring fire.
