Hello from AllCampgrounds!

The time between Christmas and New Years is perhaps the slowest point for camping all year, so we like to use this time to relax, unwind, and take a look back at the interesting and exceptional things we’ve discovered in the world of tent camping and RV camping.

2011 was a banner year for major developments in the national camping scene, and also saw the arrival of several outstanding resources that campers can use for trip planning.

Here’s a quick retrospective, AllCampgrounds style.

Tips to Camp More and Save on Gas: Everyone is looking for good ways to save money nowadays, and campers are no exception. In this post, you’ll learn the ins and outs of taking your camping plans out on the road, with apps, websites, and tactics you can use to minimize your cost per mile. If you’re looking for easy ways to stretch your budget and get out even more, this is a fantastic place to begin.

Make Camping Delicious With Outdoor Cooking: Camping cuisine has come a long way from plain old franks and beans. In this post, enjoy mouth-watering recipes and learn about some of the great, modern ways to make camping delicious. Potatos, kebabs, and even gourmet variations on the s’more can all be found, as well as some in-depth pointers on how to turn the Dutch oven into the cornerstone of a camping kitchen.

Igloo Camping: I’ll admit it: I just can’t get enough of the igloo camping post. It’s the height of winter camping finesse to be able to introduce the most effective ancient methods to your modern camping experience. For the old motto of “Leave No Trace,” this is the ultimate way to devise a natural, winter-proof shelter. The post covers the basics of how an igloo works, how to build one, and igloo camping experiences.

Can Camping Get Even Greener?: Speaking of natural camping, let’s commemorate this eco-friendly innovation from the Herkimer Diamond Mine Kampgrounds of America site one last time. Herkimer KoA is home to the solar-powered lodge, a great stride in camping technology. This lodge strives for a carbon-neutral, eco-friendly experience with a futuristic but very approachable design that incorporates green ideas at every turn. It stands out as one of the most unique ideas in the already very forward-thinking KoA camping network.

That’s just a sample of the tent camping and RV camping adventures we had this year, so check out the archives for more. Of course, we discussed AllCampgrounds’ 2012 plans recently, too, make plans to visit every Friday for more. Thanks for helping us achieve another excellent year in the world’s one-stop shop for camping! See you again soon!
