Local campgrounds are one of the favorite places to go for many kids. Being outdoors in a tent or camping trailer is an experience that just can't be duplicated with electronic games or virtual reality. Theres excitement, opportunities to learn campfire cooking skills, and often the chance to tie on a hook and a bobber. What more could a child want? Adults have their favorite local campgrounds, as well. Many family memories are made around the campfire in the evening as everyone unwinds and the discussion turns to things that matter in life. Temporarily gone are the household chores and the humdrum existence that we allow to dominate our everyday lives. Local campgrounds are just the ticket to something different and a refreshing way to get a new lease on life. Local campgrounds come in all shapes and sizes. Most of the local campgrounds that dot the landscape are quiet little spots that may not even make it on the map. The smaller ones are sometimes situated so far off the beaten path that other than the neighbors, few people realize theyre there. The services offered vary from one campground to another. Local campgrounds offer nonelectric or electric sites, or a combination of both. The trend towards bigger and better camping trailers has made some local campgrounds inaccessible to these rolling houses on wheels simply because the new units wont fit on the old pavement pads on the sites. Tent campers, on the other hand, will be welcomed with open arms. Pop-ups and small camping trailers will likewise find the facilities to their liking and plenty of room will be left over on their sites for other activities.
