4 Reasons Why Early Spring Camping Is Just As Fun As Summer Camping
If you’re already thinking, “yeah, right!” after reading the title, then this post is for you! Because it may seem surprising, but whether you choose cabin rentals or camping in a tent, camping is always a great experience the whole family can enjoy. In fact, in a study by the Institute of Education at Plymouth University, 98% of parents said camping makes their kids appreciate and connect with nature; 95% said their kids were happier when camping; and 93% felt that it provided useful skills for later life. There are also countless benefits to camping in the Adirondacks. Here are just a few reasons why camping in the spring is just as much fun as any traditional summertime camping trip.
Peace And Quiet
There’s nothing like the sound of peace and quiet, soothing silence. You won’t get this as much during the summer season. Enjoy the fresh air and the less crowded area. Camping in the spring can be a delightfully wonderful experience.
As mentioned, you won’t find any bugs during a wintertime camping trip. No swatting away at mosquitos, no spraying yourself down with chemical-filled bug spray, and no hearing that persistent buzzing in your ears. The only Beatles’ tune you’ll be hearing is Hey Jude. What can be better than that?
It’s no secret that many of the best places for camping in the Adirondacks, and in other destinations, may have increased prices on holidays or in peak season. This means there may be week day pricing breaks to take advantage of. So you’ll be able to go camping for some of the most affordable rates all year!
Enjoy A Campfire
We all know that you don’t need to keep a campfire going all day during a summer camping trip, but during the spring, it may be essential. This gives you a great chance to put your survivor instincts to the test and build a fire. You’ll be able to learn about the many different types of wood and how they burn:
Conifer species (evergreens) such as cedar, pine and balsam get the flames going quickly, due to the high resin content and loose wood fiber, but it’s the dense deciduous species, such as dried maple, oak or ironwood, that will keep the chill out,” writes Kevin Callan in Explore Magazine.
Ultimately, understanding the appeal behind winter camping is the key to making the most of any camping trip. For more information about camping in the Adirondacks, contact our Jellystone Park.
