Whether you’re an experienced camper or new to the scene, there’s nothing like the thrill of heading off on a new adventure. These days, the world of camping has expanded beyond a sleeping bag and a campfire. Campers can enjoy a taste of life in nature in an RV, tent, yurt, or cabin. Rely on this guide to help you figure out which experience is right for you.

Get Moving With An RV

RVs, or Recreational Vehicles, are perfect for families who want to feel at home on the road. These motorhomes are part vehicle, part house, and come in many different types and sizes. RVs are a great option for multiple people or families as they provide tons of living and storage space. Some RVs are equipped with just about any amenity you’ll need for comforts, such as kitchens, bathrooms and even washer/dryer combos. Regardless of which RV you find suitable for your needs, there are many campgrounds around West Point Lake to park for your next camping experience. Holiday Campground is the perfect place for a relaxing getaway. Nestled in a quiet, wooded setting, Holiday Campground has 112 sites with water and electric hookups. Find easy access with back-in and pull-through sites and conveniently located public restrooms. Make your reservation today!

Set Up Your Tent Without A Hitch

If you want to be close to nature, there’s no better way to do it than pitching a good old-fashioned tent. Tent camping today has gotten a lot easier with all the advancements in tent accessories and camping tools and gadgets. For example, cabin-style tents feature vertical walls to maximize space and height and even have room dividers and awnings, making them ideal for small groups or creating space for parents and kids. You can create amenities by bringing a camping oven or grill, camp chair, hammock and a portable speaker. Camping is an outstanding stress-relieving activity that’s fun for everyone—and there’s no better location than 3 Creeks Campground. Onsite you’ll find a playground and a catfish pond as well as a skating rink and a water park just around the bed. Not to mention the stunning lakeside views you don’t want to miss out on!

Put A Little Yurt in Your Life

Perhaps you’re seeking a more curated camping experience without having to set up a tent. If so, yurts are the way to go! Centuries ago, yurts were used in Asian countries as portable homes on journeys across the land. Today, yurts are the best for “glamping” or “glamorous camping.” The word “yurt” translates to “home” in Mongolian and serves well as a middle ground between tent camping and a cabin for a more comfortable experience. Yurts are structurally sound and aesthetically pleasing to look at—perfect for Instagram photos! You can spend your weekend getaway by renting a yurt at Pine Mountain RV Resort. Your dream yurt will be climate-controlled with plush beds and solid wooden floors. But you’re going to want to look up to find a skylight. You can experience magical starry skies from the warmth of your blankets.

A Cabin Is A Second Home

For a true home away from home experience in the great outdoors, you can always count on a cabin to deliver. A cabin allows you and your family and friends to still sleep in a campground environment with the comfort of a bed, living room, a full kitchen or kitchenette, and gas and charcoal grills. There’s no need to lug all your camping gear! Cabins found at Highland Pines Resort and Marina are stacked with amenities, including cable television and high-speed internet. Just pack what you’d bring to a hotel and Highland Pines will take care of all the rest. Highland Pines Resort and Marina offer a variety of cabin types that can comfortably room your whole crew and are pet-friendly as well. Perfect for a weekend getaway!

Camping has become more accessible than ever. No matter if you choose an RV, yurt, tent or cabin, you’ll discover you don’t have to look far for an unforgettable escape from the everyday. Your adventure is waiting for you out there on West Point Lake!
