What is it about camping or a campground that makes you a happy camper. Is it family time, activities, lack of activities etc. in the day it was the great memories of time with the family and we have some good ones. Currently it is my wife and I, sometimes the dog, sitting out relaxing under the awning with our coffee deciding what and when we will have breakfast. A quiet peaceful campground helps with that and a nice view makes it even better. It is just our special time that we started doing last fall and have continued this year. When we camp alone it is best but even when we are camping with a group we get this quiet time some. What makes you a happy camper.

For us staying at a park or campground next to or near to a river or lake is nicer than staying at some upscale "resort" next to an interstate or high traffic roadway, etc. Two of our favorite places so that we've stayed at so far are Camp Gilbert Ray just southwest of Tucson, right out in the desert and JGW south of Redding, CA. right on the Sacramento river. When we toss out the anchor at either of these two, we simply don't ever want to leave. Back in Feb. of 2012 while at CGR camapground it snowed for a day and it was incredibly beautiful with all the cactus and desert coverd in about two inches of snow. Next day the sun came out and by noon it was all gone and we were basking in the upper 70s. Ahh yes, when that happens, life is very, very good.................. biggrin.gif
