Backpacking and Camping

Backpacking and camping offer two unique ways to enjoy the great outdoors while traveling. Backpacking may be a single day hike or a longer trip where you often carry your belongings in a backpack and move from place to place. It can also include treks into wilderness areas such as deserts or mountain ranges.

Camping is a fun group or solo activity that is often a destination instead of the full trip. Instead of sleeping in a hotel room or even a youth hostel, campers bring their lodgings with them by packing a tent, driving an RV or caravan, or towing a camper to the site of their choice. Popular activities while camping involve exploring the outdoors, including short hikes, bird watching, exploring rivers or waterfalls.
