Mind you, it’s still upper 80’s here but we’ll call it “end of summer” last camping trip for us. As a family of 6, we love camping. It’s economical, helps us unplug, reconnects us to each other again and it’s relaxing. We’ve gone to O’Neill’s here locally as well as Caspers. I prefer O’Neill to Caspers since there’s been less bees when we’ve gone. And if you end up going, we really like camping site 38.
Just recently we also went to Dogwood in San Bernardino County. It’s in Lake Arrowhead, a quaint small town with the BEST Belgian waffle restaurant you’ll ever visit. We stayed in site #,which we really liked. It’s just close enough to the bathrooms, without being too close and had water near the site.
Camping with kids is so much fun for me. I’m a “glamping” camper in that while we sleep in tents, I bring homey items like cloth table covers, bed covers for my air bed, a little rug for next to my bed and a centerpiece for our camping table. I bring plenty of snacks and we also eat quite well while camping including making sauteed steak with spinach. Despite that it all seems like a lot of work, it’s surprisingly really relaxing for me. I love cooking and this allows me to do it in a rustic way and to me it brings to me back to my roots. If you’ve not camped yet with kids, go for it. I really think you’ll like it.
