Where do you go camping?

Recommended Posts

Husband and I are planning to do alot of outdoor activities this summer and I was wondering where do you go camping. We are looking into exploring different spots that has fishing, hiking, swimming oh and places where we can take our dog. We are even thinking of renting a cabin out in the woods for a weekend.

 

We do live in IL but dont mind traveling to other states.

 

Im so excited for the summer.

My FI and I are really into camping and hiking too, but we live in Ontario so we do everything here. If you're looking to go away for a few days there's lots of great places to go camping and hiking in the 'Muskoka' district in Ontario. Algonquin Park is definitely the best place to go.

We do a lot of camping and backpacking in the Smoky Mountains, mainly in Tennessee. If you are into doing multiple-day hikes, there are some great loops up there. We usually do 3 days at a time. North GA also has some nice campsites, so we go up there a good bit.

It's a bit of a hike from Illinois, but Algonquin Park, Killbear Park or Bruce National Park on the Bruce Peninsula in Ontario are all pretty awesome places to camp. Tons of stuff to do as well.

I don't know much about Illinois, but we camp all the time up here in Wisconsin! There are SO many wonderful places, it's ridiculous!!

 

Kohler Andrae State Park is one of my favorites.

Mauthe lake is where we go whenever we get a free weekend, as it's just 20 minutes from our house.

Further up north there are some great camping places with beautiful waterfalls on hikes. It's super awesome.

We always go to state parks. Camping at a state park is always far nicer, and cheaper, then going to actual camp sites. We got engaged during a hiking excursion at Mt. Magazine State Park in Arkansas, it was beautiful!

We always do state parks. They are inexpensive and it really makes for a mellow and relaxing weekend. There are a lot who have beaches on small lakes for swimming and fishing and whatnot. Its always nice to just get away. We just booked a weekend in June to go :)

Northern California is great for fishing, hiking, camping etc. My fiance and I go backpacking all the time and love it. If you haven't been before, check out some of the national parks. Yosemite is beautiful and Lassen is quite but beautiful as well.

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
