What is your worst camping experience or campsite? My worst experience was also at my worst campsite. The site itself was more like a parking lot and it was full of screaming children, barking dogs and parents sitting around the campfire Facebooking!

    I am not a drinker and went to this camp grounds to get away, just me and my dog. I had no idea what was going on that weekend but I swear everyone was drunk. I heard screaming and yelling till 2 AM. I will never go back there again!

    I stayed at this camp ground about 7 years ago where it was my first tent camping experience. Needless to say, I forgot my tent and forgot half my supplies. Thankfully others were coming down too but I had to sleep without a tent for 2 nights. I was bit up all over. Not fun!

    I went to Yellow Stone a few years ago and enjoyed it up until I noticed a person was there that I hadn't seen in nearly 5 years. Someone in the family that was not a nice person you can say. I spent the remainder of the trip trying to avoid her. Ruined the trip for me.

    That’s why I hate to bring any gadgets when going camping because the intention of being with the nature will become useless if we can’t stop taking images and posting it on instagram or facebook.

    Microwaves on a camp out? I guess the campfire is too slow to cook their chicken nuggets. Camping isn't for everyone and they might be the ones that should hotel it every year. I wonder if that means I can bring along a coffee maker and a flat screen tv?

    Camping should be enjoyable and fun so we must avoid lakes where in we can be disappointed. We should look for reviews about certain lakes and their amenities before making a decision if we will camp on them or not.
