We are going on our first camping trip as a family over Memorial Day. We have three children 8, 6 and 1. I would love to hear your family experiences and advise to make this a smooth trip. I've camped before but never with children!!

Depending on where you are going camping, make sure to take along things like crayons and coloring books, or book to read, games for them to play. Most campgrounds have playgrounds too. We will be going camping that weekend too, and my daughter and her hubby are coming along as well. We usually make it our first camping weekend of the summer, and we go camping at least once a month until September. About 1/2 the time it is just the two of us and our dog, but sometimes his daughter and one of her friends comes along. They are 14 so they can walk down to the gameroom, and play video games, they do have to be accompanied by an adult to go to the pool, which is no big deal. Have fun.
