Do you Camp, do you enjoy it? do you camp in a tent, trailer or cottage. We used to just love the tent but now with having 4 kids it seems to be too much work, that and we got completely soaked on multiple occassions this summer. We are planning on either getting a trailer or renting cottages next year for sure.

I love to camp. We used to have a camping trailer, then we sold then and bought a tent and a boat, that was fun. Now we have a camp on a lake which is way better.

I love camping. I own a 2 room cabin tent. I used to own a trailer. I camp when I can, its relaxing, beautiful, and peaceful. I love to paint when I am camping, I'm also inspired to write when I am camping. Must be the muse of nature...

It could be the break from everyday life that allows you to get in touch with your creative side, congratulations on being able to do it.

Yes we love camping but at our age also like some of the comforts of home. We have a caravan which we take when we are going long distances or for a couple of months. However we also have a vehicle done our as a campervan - the beds are really nice. :) We prefer camping to staying anywhere else because we have peace and quiet, can relax plus it saves a fortune. We would probably spend several months a year away from out base, mostly camping but also sometimes we spend time with friends as well.

I love it!! When I was still living in my home country(Japan)and was still living with my family,we had a summer camp out to lots of places around Japan.My father took about 10 days for it and we made a big plan every time we go. We sometimes had to work for tent in a heavy rain and wind,we caught fish then cook and eat was fun as well. I miss the time when I had a lot of fun with my family.I am looking forward to do it when I go back to my home for vacation!

We love camping, as you know. Its nice to be able to gather around the campfire with friends and family and just spend each day carefree. You don't have to worry about the time of day or whether it rains or the sunshines (Except when we have thundershowers and u wake up with rain drops hitting you in the face!)

We have not been camping for years. My husband is in the military and does not want to spend his vacation time doing things that he has to do while 'at work' ;) Renting a cottage at a camp ground would be nice though; I think I may look into that! Thanks for the idea

When I was younger, I just layed under the stars in a sleeping bag. Now I'm an oldie, and I go in our RV. I do love traveling and seeing our country. But, sleeping in comfort now. :)

Camping is our vacation. It is affordable, gets us outdoors to enjoy nature, get exercise, and spend time together. We once used a tent(tenting). We have a popup folding camper now. It has worked out well for us. However, each person has their own preferences. I'm sort of addicted to camping so my perspective is bias.

I love camping. I am a firebug and cooking over an open fire just tastes better. I have been in some big soaks in the past, but it was still fun. A trailer or cabin makes good sense when you have several kids to look after.

I love camping in anything..lol I'm stuck with cabin camping for the time being. I lost all my camping equipement to debt. I had alot of equipment. I had 3 tents, one of them was a 3 room the other a 4 person tent. The smallest tent, a pop up tent, was used for food storage, supplies and equipment. I had two canopies and a screen house. All kinds of cooking, cleaning supplies, etc. I had a nice stove and gas grill. I still have my electric cooler. Anyway, I used to go camping for weeks at time. Now I don't have all my things I use cabis. But I love that just as much if not more. Less stuff to haul around and pack up when it's time to go home...lol. I just love being out in the wilderness. Comuning with nature, hehe.
