So, my fiance and I want to go camping in about two weeks, where should we go?|
Quick background info: Last time I camped was in high school (aka 6 or so years ago), but it was a hike-out primitive camp without water, showers, electric, etc - but the people I was with are more experienced with camping. He has never camped but he's quick at adapting at new situations.
So... which place should we camp at, a more developed campsite since we are pretty much beginners, or a more primitive park where it's quieter and more private?
Here are the pros and cons:
Park A: Developed State Park
Pros: more amenities (showers, toilets, water, picnic sites), can rent boats
Cons: more expensive (~$20), more likely to be crowded at this time of year
Park B: Primitive Natural Area
Pros: more likely to be secluded/quiet/private, cheaper ($5-10)
Cons: no amenities (showers, toilets, water)
Both parks are next to a lake, both parks you can drive up to the campsite, and both parks allow ground fires at this time (no burn bans in those counties).
So, A or B?
