City folk want to expand their horizons in the American west

My husband and I are thinking about taking a trip to Rocky Mountain National Park in Colorado next summer. I want to stay close to wilderness, but we have little camping experience and no equipment at this time - I was kind of hoping for a rustic cabin experience nearby. I've read previous threads about this but many of the answers seem to be about experienced campers. Does anyone have any recommendations of where to stay or the easiest way to ease camping newbies into an out-west nature experience?

To stick down that seam tape or not...

Following up to this question, my tent seam seal failed to stick down some of the taped seams that were coming untaped. Is it supposed to be able to stick them down or is that irrelevant as long as the seam seal goop absorbs into the stitching etc. I just thought that since when I bought the tent some of the taped seams were stuck down properly and some were peeling up, that maybe that was responsible for the leakage.

To duct tape or not to duct tape...

I have this tent. The rainfly according to the box is polyester and the plastic window for the solar panel is PVC and the seams where the two materials join are 'taped'. (They are also stitched, whatever.) This seal between the two materials is leaking. Given the type of materials how do I patch this leak? (I have sprayed all interior seams with Silicone tent spray as instructed).

Happy camper. Or not...

I have scored a week long wilderness trip. Hurrah for me. Except the last time I went camping was when I was, oh, 14. And I hated it. This time, I'll be working as well as camping. So my question to you, gentle woodsfolk of Metafilter, is what can I do to make my week in the wild productive and fun? Rather than the living hell I remember camping to be. [more inside]

Camping in Boston? I'd love to, thanks... Looking for some suggestions!

I'm looking for some good casual camping options near Boston, Ma (probably no more than a 2 hour drive). I've looked at a lot of sites that list camping places, but none that actually show ratings, or people's opinions. I don't have a 4WD vehicle, but usually like places that are a little more rustic, or out of the way. Camping isn't camping if you are with a thousand other people in a flat campground. As far as locations, I'd love to experience beach camping, forests, lakes, mountains... I'm really open to anything, but don't have any idea of where to start. It would just be nice to get out of the city with some friends on the weekends. Thanks for the help!

Know any good campgrounds in the Virginia mountains?

My 14 year old son and I want to get away to the mountains of VA and do some camping. What are some good campgrounds to serve as a base of operations for 2 or 3 days of hiking and fishing over Labor Day weekend? I'm looking for options close to day hike loop trails in the Shenandoah mountains. We're not rookie campers, however real life has cut our camping opportunities back severely the last couple of years. I don't have the equipment for overnighting from a backpack, so we'll be car camping.
