Are you looking for ideas for fun family vacations? Whether you have young children, teenagers, or a combination of both, you especially want to make sure there’s something for everyone in the family to enjoy.
Camping continues to be a very popular vacation choice. In 2011, for example, vacationers spent 534.9 million days camping. Furthermore, on an annual basis, more than 11 million children and adults go to organized camps for their family vacations.
When it comes time to pick which type of campground would be the best for you and your family, there are quite a few from which to choose. The Outdoor Foundation conducted a survey that found 67% of people who go camping usually stay in a public campground. It’s nice to know that these types of campgrounds tend to have a variety of amenities.
You don’t need to rough it if that’s not your style, either. Instead of choosing a campground with traditional cabins, you may want to choose from several family camping resorts with luxury cabins.
Even though one of the main reasons people like to go camping is to enjoy the outdoors, it’s nice when there are other activities available. Many family friendly camp grounds offer quite a few attractions and activities.
Hiking is considered to be the most popular outdoor activity. Many of these family campgrounds offer guided hikes where you can learn about the history of the area. You can also learn about the land, plants and trees, as well as the insects, reptiles, birds, and other creatures that make it their natural habitat.
Some family friendly campgrounds offer a wide range of other athletic activities. You and your children will be able to play mini golf, basketball, and volleyball.
If you’re planning to vacation with your large extended family or family friends and their children, you might enjoy renting cabins by a lake. In addition to swimming, you may also like to take a boat out for a nice relaxing afternoon.
If your family really enjoys water-based activities, family camping resorts tend to have pools, water splash parks, and giant water slides.
When you find just the right campground for your family, just imagine all the fun–and wonderful memories–everyone will have.
