Having gone on more than one picnic while traveling with my children, I’ve learned a thing or two about how to plan the best campground for overnight guests. If you are planning a trip with children, you know the fun that can be had camping. Picnics can be educational, bonding experiences, or a pure mess. Choosing the right campground location is important. Here are some things that make good campgrounds and other good spots to eat and enjoy the night away from home:
Games On The Go: The Park offers several games that are easy for children to play in the cool of the early morning. It s especially neat when they take turns being the golfer, the waiter, or the boxer. Fort Wadsworth is a very good spot to hike trails near an ocean. The park also has hiking, biking, swimming, and beach access. New York’s Camping Place Park has camping available, as well as playgrounds and swimming beaches. Other nearby campsites are in Rockland, Massachusetts; Maine; Massachusetts; New Jersey; Connecticut; Pennsylvania; and Virginia.
Water Falls, Fun And Adventure: Located in Rockland, Maine at the Diamond Head Campgrounds. Here, campers will find a great Americana-style amusement park. The Waterfalls are a must-visit, with waters cascading into the quiet lake at the top of the trail, surrounded by splendid scenery. Another great attraction is the Secret Lagoon, where visitors can fish, dive, or snorkel. Other attractions include hot air ballooning, sunset cruises, and trips into the nearby wilderness.
Mountain Bikes, Mountain Climbers, And More: Miles of trails around this small park bring cyclists, hikers, and campers close to Main Campground. It’s easy to reach the top of the trail from the campground’s picnic area, which has shade, electricity, bathrooms, showers, fire rings, picnic tables, fire pits, and other facilities. Another nearby attraction is the Paradise Creek Wildlife Sanctuary, where visitors can feed birds, pet wildlife, watch in wonderment, or go on guided tours. The nearby Fox River watershed provides trout, salmon, walleye, bass, and other species of wild fish. There’s also a campground just a few miles away on Maine’s western coast, offering lodging, hot tubs, cabins, and hiking trails.
Lake Camping: Maine’s only all-inclusive, tent-and-fireplace campground in Nice offers scenic lake views. There’s room for up to twelve campers, plus a lake house that doubles as a home on the lake. Here, campers can enjoy meals outdoors on the grill, swim in the cool water, or just sit and watch the trawling birds and wildlife. At night, campers can light campfire grills, take a dip in the lake, or go bonfire-ready with hotdogs, marshmallows, and hotdogs.
Of course, there are a number of other Maine campgrounds in the north inlet campgrounds, too. Maine has a long history of camping in its numerous outlying campsites. It’s also home to America’s first National Park, so chances are good that you’ll spot some wild animals wandering around the parks. Maine is known for its trout fishing, so don’t let the name mislead you, either. Maine is an outdoor heaven, so whatever your vacation plan, there’s a Maine hotel for you.
