My husband and I never camped as kids. Our neighbors had a big camper, and we thought we'd try it. We bought a tiny pop up, and camped with it for a long time. We had a small trailer, and then tent camped for years.

Now, we use a big pop up. I have a mattress with a memory foam topper, and it's comfier and roomier than my own bed. We have a stove, sink with hot water, fridge and a table and benches.

There is nothing nicer than waking up, getting up and putting on water for coffee in the French press. I sleep in sweats and a t-shirt, so I'm already dressed to go out. While waiting, I'm watching the chipmunks scamper around the site. Listen to the birds. Hear the wind rustling in the trees.

When the coffee's ready, I fix a cup and go out. Sit by the fire-it's gone out since last night-and relax in my comfy, reclining camp chair. I sit very still, so the chipmunks will get used to me. Sure enough, they come close enough that they will snatch peanuts from my hand!!

I sip my coffee, enjoying the peace. After a while, my husband comes out. He smiles, and fixes his own coffee. We sit in silence by the dead fire. He soon wants breakfast, so he builds the fire again. He likes to eat bacon and eggs while camping, I'm ok with granola, or a muffin. He makes his own breakfast. We have orange juice too. I have a plastic, red and white checkered tablecloth already on the picnic table that's supplied by the campground. We sit there and eat. Have more coffee.

Occasionally, someone walks by. "Morning," we say. "Good morning," they respond, with smiles. After a while, it starts getting busier. Little kids start riding their little bikes. People walk past with fishing rods and gear. Someone starts throwing a Frisbee. Some people are heading to the showers with towels and bottles.

Eventually my daughter wakes up. I fix another pot of coffee for her, and she eats too. By now, I've been awake for hours. I gather up all the dishes: the French press, 3 cups, a few plates and silverware. I wash them with all the hot water I could ask for, and of course, dish soap. The water runs into a container designed for this purpose. I wipe up, tidy up the beds.

I usually shower in the morning. I do that, with plenty of hot water. Now that the camp is all clean, what do we do? I put up my hammock, lay on it with my Kindle. Swing gently back and forth. My daughter and husband each amuse themselves.

Later, we walk to the lake. We swim, build sand castles. If we brought the kayak, we take turns paddling around. If we brought bikes, we go for a cruise.

Lunch? See my previous post on what we eat when camping. Afternoons, more of the same activities as before lunch: reading, relaxing, swimming, biking. We also enjoy geocaching.

As dusk approaches, we build up the fire again. Now we cook food on sticks, or in pie irons. My daughter is partial to toasted cheese, and pizza. We have beer in cups. I'm in bed between 10 and 11-after all, I was awake at dawn. I'm a natural morning person!

Even if it rains, we're ready. The pop up has a canopy, and we sit under it, and pull the picnic table under, too. We play cards, or Bananagrams, or Quiddler. Even if the rain gets REALLY bad, we go inside. Zip up windows, turn on lights, and play our games inside. Or, lie in bed and read.

We usually take drives, too. We'll be camping near Cape Cod this year, so we'll spend some days exploring there. We do things like pick berries, catch fireflies. One campground had karaoke one evening. I will never forget everyone singing along to "Bohemian Rhapsody" then, complete with head-banging. We once watched a demonstration of how hawks hunt. We have had deer come walk through our site, while we sat quietly and watched them.

In conclusion, camping is fun. Make friends with someone who has a big luxury camper, and beg them to teach you.

I'm glad you enjoy all of that. It's clear from your post that you very much enjoy...dare I say love?...camping.

Still not for me though.

While I can tell you want others to share your love of camping, what you just described sound like my weekends only it is done in the comfort of my home.

Oh yeah, right down to the deer that my neighbor hand feeds. Sorry. All that catching fire flies and picking berries, Sorry I would never fork over any amount of money for that.

Glad you enjoy it, what you describe above sounds like a totally rotten vacation to me. I don't need anyone to teach me how to do something that I would get no enjoyment out of. In short, I would rather do to the dentist.

ETA. Don't need a flat lake, we have the ocean where we can build sand castles, my DD can surf. Then we can go back home, sower in the privacy of our own home in a VERY large shower and then fo our to a nice dinner. And I really do hate all types of board and card games. Yes I am rotten. I like being entertained. I love TV restaurants and WDW, or the beach for a day. The rest that you described, I will leave it for you, you love it, but it sounds like pure torture to me, and that is no exageration, it really isn't.

I have really camped 3 times. None pleasant. Skunks walking in, sleeping on the tent zipper because i was worried a kid might sleep walk. My idea of camping is in a motor home,A/C, toilet, shower, microwave.
Fortunately (or not) DH had a 4 horse trailer/living quarters combo and had a carbon monoxide leak. Freinds found him passed out from fumes so, no more camping. Yeah, we went in a motorhome and stayed in a hotel. He married a spoiled girl.
But I have done enough overnights in gyms and museums as a chaperone to last a life time.
No way, no where would I ever sleep in a tent and I am a country girl. I can rough it if needed but never by choice.

I've done my share of camping in Alaska. Pit toilets and misquitoes the size of small birds....fun. Now that I'm a little older, I just haven't the tolerance, and there's no way I'm camping anywhere hot and snakey. It always seems like you are packing up the whole house to go somewhere without air conditioning and internet connectivity!

My best memories was of my rand parents taking us camping, I started camping right away with my kids and we go at least 8 times from May until October. We have a pop up with just the basics (no heat, a-c, bathroom). It basically keeps us off the ground. My kids loved it growing up. I have two left that still will camp and I plan on taking my grand kids. Great memories.

Everyone has different ideas of what is fun and relaxing. I love how she described camping, that is how it is for us there is nothing like it. I have vacationed at Disney and many other places, including all inclusive resorts, the beach, Europe but for some reason, camping is were the best memories are made for us.

ITE. We're away from the pressures of home, electronic devices, phones, etc. and we really have time to bond and enjoy each other's company. We spend a lot of time relaxing, reading, playing board games, walking and talking, having nature scavenger hunts, playing horseshoes, and lots more fun, outdoor things. We also love stargazing; the stars are so bright and beautiful away from the city lights.

We eat delicious foods when we're camping. Because we go with other families, we usually try to make foods that people can individualize to their own tastes.

E.g., we'll have a quesadilla bar with chicken, cheese, sauteed onions and bell peppers, tomatoes, and all the other fixins' then let people put what they want on theirs and heat on the griddle.

We also usually have some sort of fruit cobbler cooked in a dutch oven in the fire. Yummy!

Make your own omelet (cooked in plastic baggies in boiling water).

Lowcountry boil--shrimp, sausage, corn, onions, potatoes. Boil on camp stove and then pour over newspaper on picnic table and let everyone pick out what they want.

Sausage and peppers (cooked in aluminum pan over campfire) with marinara over noodles.

We do usually have beef hot dogs once per trip because the kids love cooking them on a stick over campfire.

And of course, S'mores.

I am surprised no one has mentioned "glamping." My sister and I used to go with a group of 10 friends every fall. We rented 6 campsites in a circle (that had water and electricity.) Every year we had a theme and decorated our tents and campsite accordingly. (Movies, songs, the 50's etc.)

We used self-inflatable beds and put pretty sheets and bedspreads on them. We had fans, heaters and electric lights in our tents. We decorated our beds with lacy throw pillows, throw rugs, etc. to make them super feminine and very comfortable. Even the outside of our tents were decorated to match the theme.

We had some of the "regulars" of the camp grounds judge the tents on Saturday evening and gave out prizes. Some of the "regulars" would call the camp grounds to see when we were going to be there and showed up year after year!

We drew names at a meeting a couple of months before the camp out to see which meal each tent would prepare so everyone was responsible for just one meal.....and they were very good! Of course, we had tablecloths, candles and flowers on the tables.

Fun and filled with as much luxury as possible!

What a great idea and how fun! We may have to do this next trip.

I remember a campground near our old hometown that had Halloween festivities the last weekend in October. All the camp sites were decorated and there would be a contest, plus hay rides, trick or treating and at least one haunted camp site. It always filled up a year in advance for that weekend and I never got to go, but it sounds like a blast.

We do things we wouldn't do at home. Campers are also very friendly and most campground have events. Great for the kids! I Agee, camping is all about the food! We make banana boats- slice a bandanna in half, stuff with choc chips and mini marshmallows and wrap in tin foil. Put on edge of fire and when it's melted, eat with a spoon, it's good. I add nuts. Also, we cook pills bury dough over the fire and add butter and jelly-great in the morning! Can't do that in a hotel room!

Yes, I think being "outdoorsy" is a bit of a requirement. I love nature. I live for it daily.

This morning I was out enjoying the birds. Last night the dogs kept us up late because I have a bunny that has moved into my landscaping somewhere.

One of my dogs was on "bunny patrol" inside the house. She was so helpful to sound the alarm every time Little Rabbit Foo Foo was out yard.

I also grew up with a "summer home" in the woods and my dad's vacations consisted of going to different lakes and fishing.

Plus living in Missouri, we are campground central with lakes and rivers.

Exactly, the poster I was responding to was doing her best to show how wonderful it was, I was simply stating that for many of us camping is not and never will be enjoyable for some of us.

I have good friends that camp and for some reason people that like it, just can't seem to get that some of us don't. I just very politely decline each time they ask, they just don't get it even though I have told them repeatedly.

I agree, some do not like it! Oh we'll, that is what makes the world go round.
