Camp In Your Backyard With Your Family

One of the best times of the year to get outside and enjoy the great outdoors is in the fall. The cooler temperatures, football and the realization that you might be cooped up all winter are enough to get almost everybody out of the house. If those reasons aren’t enough to get you outside, the beautiful turning of the leaves can make a stunning backdrop that anyone will enjoy. Anyone looking for a chance to get in one last chance to enjoy being outside should consider going camping during the fall even if it’s only in your own backyard! People on the East Coast of the United States have a definite advantage over some of the other states due to their sheer amount of trees, think of Vermont and Boston in the fall. So if you are from these areas you should join the many tourists coming to your area just for this reason, you also have the advantage of not having to book flights and hope that you time your visit with the changing leaves. Of course, you do need to reserve campground if you plan on camping at a private campground but why not get out your cabin tent and pitch it in the backyard. There is a good chance you live near plenty of trees and it can make a great adventure for kids and families. It might be a little more comfortable too since you can use your own facilities. But be creative, get out your barbeque, roast some hot dogs and smores and your kids will love it. Some areas have a bit of a disadvantage. Maybe you live in Las Vegas or the desert and you don’t have many trees near you because you only have one season, hot. That’s Ok, you can still be creative. Even if the leaves aren’t changing colors it is still a great excuse to get outside and there isn’t anything much cheaper than camping in your own backyard. Set rules to limit cell phones, mp3 players and other electronics and let yourselves really enjoy your time together as a family. It can be a lot of fun to have a backyard camping experience and that 8 man tent can get one more use before the winter comes.
