What turns an evening by the campfire into an unforgettable experience? For me, it takes a forest lake, a chilly night, a crackling fire, lots of friends and family, plenty of hot dogs and marshmallows for roasting and, of course, campfire stories.

    I have never been much of a fire person. I do enjoy one but I don't like to be sitting by it. Anytime I go camping I take my small RV and usually go to sleep when the sun goes down. I don't camp in big groups though unless it is a family event.

    I love cooking beans and hotdogs over an open fire while camping. Something about it is so relaxing. You feel free from all the stress of the mainstream world. I am not a big fan of s'mores but I do enjoy a nice burnt hotdog with some bakes beans.

    I love camping besides large lakes. You can get some fishing in, the sunsets are always beautiful, nature is typically louder and the reflections of a lake with a starry night is stunning. I have stayed at a lake down south from me before (just a man made lake) and the sunset right behind it. I loved it! We would start the fire at sunset and stay up till 2 AM enjoying the stars.

    When I was a child, I would go over to my cousins and a few other kids from the neighborhood would join us. We would have a bonfire and tell stories. We did this every weekend in the Summer. Her mom would try and spook us too. I miss the good ol' days of being a kid and only having to worry about getting yelled at by parents. haha:D

    I enjoy sitting by the campfire at night. That is usually what does it for me. Good food is always a bonus!

    Sometimes nature can intrude on a camping trip and we often forget that we are the actual intruders. It's always best to research the area for any dangers or signs of wildlife that could be harmful before setting up camp.

    Good conversation can make or break a camp out. We make a rule that no one can have mobile devices around the campfire. I don't like bringing them along at all, but I do understand that people are addicted to their devices. We just don't want them to ruin the experience.
