Camping is an activity that takes place outdoors and generally involves spending periods of time in tents, recreational vehicles or camping trailers. Cooking is generally done on campfires or propane stoves and sleeping is often in sleeping bags. All equipment and food is “packed” in to and out of the camping site for the camper’s convenience.
