My husband surprised me the other day by coming home with a 10-man tent and some camping gear. He and the kids got it set up in the backyard to check it out. They decided to go ahead and have a camp-out in our backyard. I opted to stay in the house with the baby just to make it easier for them 😉
Now that they feel like they have some camping experience, they want to go to a real campground. I know it will be great memories, but I’m not quite jumping for joy at the thought of camping. I really like having my own bathroom and shower, my own room, a fridge and microwave…since growing up I’ve morphed into a high-quality hotel vacationer 🙂 So this is where I need some advice. For experienced family campers, what are some tips, tricks, or things you wish you knew when you first went camping? How did you organize all your supplies? What supplies did you find you really need? What about meals? Any great recipes for camping? Advice? Can you tell I really need some help! LOL!
