One of the best things about camping is all of the options you have. There are fancy RV resorts charging over $100 per night for amazing views and amenities, as well as secluded spots in the woods where all you get is what you brought with you.
Types of Camping
All of my camping experience has been in Colorado, Utah, and Arizona. If you live in other areas of the world, your experiences may be different. In the American Southwest, you have a few options for camping:
- Established campgrounds with amenities
- National and state park campgrounds
- Established camping in national forests or BLM lands
- Dispersed camping
- Primitive camping
They all have their pros and cons, and I go over these options in more detail.
