    Camping = Here We Come!

    For a lot of us, summertime means camping! Whether we go to the beach, a mountain lake, alongside a river, or in the woods, it is a fun-filled event whether you are single, a couple, a family, or a group. Many state parks offer different activities relative to the location, whether it is swimming, hiking, boating, etc. Some even offer nature hike tours or evening fireside programs.

    How do we start... where do we go to reserve a campsite? Well, here is one link that will start you in the right direction: Reserve America. This website asks if you are looking for a campsite, a cabin, or just day use, as well as the state you are interested in, an arrival date or range of dates. After you enter that information and click Search, you are shown the list of campgrounds with their respective map and an opportunity to select the site to pitch your tent or park your RV. You can click on a particular campground name and review additional information about that location. You can also click on the link to view what sites are available at that campground. Once you have made your decision, you can click on Book Now to make the reservation, entering required information.

    If you have not been to that campground before and are interested in more information, such as regulations, park hours, events, etc., you can do a Google search for that campground and see what it has to offer. For instance, if you are interested in Beverly Beach campgrounds in Oregon, you would enter in the Google search box beverly+beach+oregon and click Go. You will get a host of links regarding that campground offering all types of information.

    My own experience has shown that very popular campsites go fast, so you have to reserve early, real early! Start January 1 to reserve a site that may be in high demand. So, pack the family, don't forget the dog, and bring lots of food!

    Have a happy and safe camping excursion, and "Remember" Only You Can Prevent Wild Fires!
