Although camping in your backyard may not be as glamorous as heading to a local campground or state park, you can have a fun nighttime adventure close to home. Yes, millions of Americans head to local campgrounds each year, but it might surprise you that thousands of families decide to never leave home.
Popular for many reasons, backyard camping is convenient and easy. No transportation to a campground and the supplies are walking distance away. Backyard campouts are extremely popular with families with children, especially ideal for those with young children.
Camping equipment is also on a case by case basis. If the weather permits and you don't have a tent you can sleep under the stars or a makeshift tent with a sheet. If you have camping supplies galore you can really mimic the real thing.
