If you’re planning a camping trip this summer and are looking for a tried and tested family-friendly spot, these are all great options! Tons of activities for kids, not so rustic that everyone comes home filthy and covered in bug bites, but enough to feel like you are enjoying nature.
Some of these may be just around the corner from you and would make for a fun “staycation”. Sometimes it can be a great change of pace to get away from home without spending a fortune or traveling too far!
