Any DISDad campers out there?

I looked at all the threads and did not see any on camping. Do any of you go camping at all? We just bought a used pop up camper and are getting back into camping again. Can't wait.

At the risk of going other places on this board, there is a big group over on the camping forum. I'd love to go camping at Fort Wilderness but my wife's idea of camping is staying in a hotel that doesn't have room service.

I would love to go camping again. I think it is a great way to travel. Unfortunately, our weekends are committed to soccer, softball, dance, and basketball. I even did the primitive camp sites before we were married, but the camper would make it nicer. What size did you get?

We live just 20 min of one of the great camping and hiking spots in Alabama... Yet living so close we tend to go hike for the day and come home.... I go by myself some times just to get away from everything for a few hours....

Yup. I go camping at least twice a year. More if I get the chance. Going depends on our current drought situation. I live close to many National Forests and with the drought as bad as it is, the forest rangers issue fire restrictions. So if we can't build a campfire, then we'll wait to go until we can. Often times, if the fire restrictions get really bad, they'll just close off the campgrounds all together.

Should be picking up our new2us Jayco 1007 pop up in about 2 weeks. It has a 11ft box. What is nice is that it will fit in our garage. Cant wait.

That sounds nice. Got any plans yet? Lots of parks in KY. Let us know if you will be anywhere close. I'll dig out my camping gear, although it has probably dry rotted by now. At least we can stop by for a meet.

We do a camping trip at once or twice a summer. I've decided for my (date to be determined) solo Disney trip, I'm gonna set up a tent at the Fort.
