Go Big and Play Hard
Camping outdoors is not always fun for every person in your group, but there are several options that may make it easier for your family to enjoy. An RV is obviously the best solution, but it is not always practical. If you want to explore everything there is to see, be it wildlife or finding a swimming hole that is nearby; your family can enjoy it. You just want to make sure you take along sunscreen, insect repellent, and other necessary items. If you plan on a weekend outing, but you do not have an RV, you may also look into one of the many portable toilet solutions, which can help when nature calls. This may be the key to encouraging your family to enjoy all that Mother Nature has to offer since many people do not enjoy the idea of squatting in the woods.
