Family Vacation On The Cheap – Go Camping Free Style

Searching for more affordable family vacations? Camping can be the right fit for cheap family vacation. No matter what, whether you choose national forests or camping grounds in state parks camping will be a memorable family vacation. One may choose several methods and way while planning camping outing, but most families prefer the free style camping. When I say free style camping that means just get a tent and let the fun ball rolling.

Comparing the cost of RV parks or camp site with lots of amenities against the expense of free style camping accessories purchase; the expense is less with free style camping. Free style camping needs accessories such as tents, sleeping bags and other camping travel gear for your vacation; the cost is minimal. Also, amenities at camp site will not let you enjoy the real camping experience.

Camping free style gives you a chance to spend time together with family and friends. You can have fun conversation & singing around the campfire, bask the nature in wide open and these all activities you can do staying away from usual routine life. Camping combines fun, excitement, adventure including a rare experience of getting close to each other while you are on family trip.

As described earlier, you’ll need to buy the basic camp equipment such as a tent, preferably one that will house the entire family, food, a cooler, ice, sleeping bags, camping stove, as well as the following items: pillows, cleaning supplies, folding table, cookware, utensils, cups, and toilet paper (especially if there are no restrooms around), first aid kit, and board games, fishing gear, flashlights, and extra batteries.

Going back to the purchase area for camping, you will need to get the basic camping equipment such as tents which can house entire family, sleeping bags, pillows, camping stove, frozen food, beverage cooler, cleaning supplies, cookware, utensils, cups and toilet paper if needed. Do not forget to carry first aid kit, games, flashlights, battery lamp and extra batteries. Considering your personal preferences do not forget to carry fishing gears and bikes. Regular campers suggest keeping tarp under the tent. Generally tarp prevents water entering into the tent. You can say that tarp serves as a tent floor. These equipments can be purchased online from or any local store. These purchases are one time investment for all future similar family vacation trips.

In addition, now that you have the basic supplies, you can always supplement your gear with additional things, which you might need for the next camping vacation. You can easily check online websites to find a campsite in your state, as well as the low cost for staying in a national park or forest reserve.

Today’s busy life has made hard to have some quality time with family together. Camping vacation gives a chance to bring family closer without any distraction to tighten the love bond unique way. Whether mom or dad takes kids for fishing or hiking and one of them can have their leisure time alone. Or may be everyone goes together for adventure activities. Trust me; camping reunites the family unique way than any other type of vacation.

Last but not the least; do not forget to carry your camera along with extra batteries to capture all those laughter and memories which you will be able to share over the coming years. I strongly recommend camping for family vacation if you are looking for affordable vacation all together.
