Hello and welcome back to AllCampgrounds!

But that doesn’t mean that we just forget about camping or that there aren’t any campers on our holiday shopping list.

So, today, we’ll look at some ideas for those who are doing last-minute holiday shopping (or early New Year shopping) for campers of all kinds. (more…)

You know, for the holidays, even hardcore tent campers like us have to come indoors for turkey, ham, stuffing, and all the rest.

Just a bit ago, we discussed some things we’re thankful for in the camping world.

Now, as we snooze off another terrific holiday meal, it’s time to look ahead to the peak of the winter holiday season and ask: just what would AllCampgrounds want from Camping Santa this year?

Welcome back to AllCampgrounds!

Last week’s visit had us combing through some of the best sites on the web for winter camping.

Of course, winter camping makes for some of the best and most challenging opportunities for backcountry adventures, but you have to know your stuff!
