Going to be in Wisconsin this weekend around the Green Bay area. Can anyone suggest a good campground around there? We are going to be tent camping but would like a campground that has a shower since we are road tripping.

DallastoArkansascampingFilter: I'm looking to take my family (wife and Two children) to Arkansas for a long weekend of camping. Im looking for a semi secluded cabin area with fun activities around the cabin (Fishing, canoeing, swimming, hiking, etc..) Can anyone recommend any such areas? Also looking at the closest area near Tx, as i don't want to drive all the way across Arkansas to get there. Thanks in advance.

I am planning a trip to California late July with a friend and I wouldn't mind renting transportation to get around. Would it be feasible / possible to rent some kind of hippie van and sleep in it along the coast?

Last year we went on a camping trip to PEI and Nova Scotia and we had a great time. This summer we are thinking of going on a similar getaway. But in the last week or so, we've noticed articles online about a fire ant infestation.
How widespread is the ant problem? Should we think about going somewhere else on our camping trip?

I'm a female in my early 20s and am going on a company hike to to the juan de fuca marine trail in a few weeks. We're hiking like 23 miles in two days and carrying 20-30lb packs. The trail has been described as "moderate to difficult." I am not overweight but I am NOT in shape. I do not work out. I am afraid this ordeal might just kill me. I am an indoor girl. I'm seriously regretting my decision to do this. But it's too late to go back now. [more inside]

Need some suggestions for Oregon camping. I'm located in Eugene. My wife's b-day is coming up and we're due some off-the-beaten track in Nature time. We'll have four days and don't want to drive more than 4 hours or so, so that's a radius of 240 miles in any direction. We'd like to find some place off-road that our van (old, not particularly robust) can negotiate which is ripe for exploring, camping and checking out. [more inside]

I want to go camping this weekend somewhere inside a 3 hour drive (or so) from Seattle. I'd prefer backcountry camping so I've got some isolation. But I don't particularly want to hike and camp in the snow, so I need to stick to a low elevation. What are some good options?

What are some suggestions for coordinating a "dating game" or fun "speed dating" activity at an outdoor camping event this weekend? The general intent of the activity is to laugh, get people more familiar and comfortable with each other (platonically or romantically), and maybe even make some matches. Attendees will be grown women and men of assorted social persuasions. [more inside]

I'm looking for extremely primitive beach camping sites (preferably on the Chesapeake) in the DC/MD/VA area. I'm talking about places with no running water, no bathrooms, nothing but nature for miles around. Assateague Island's backcountry camping sites
are a perfect example of what I'm looking for. Any suggestions? Thanks!
