    Happy Camper Blog



    If you love
    being outdoors but hate to leave the comforts of home to go camping, you
    don’t have to! Glamping was made for you. The term comes from a combination

      campsite that much more cozy, whether you’re reading in bed or sitting in a
      chair by the campfire.

    • Food and Drink – You can still enjoy gourmet
      meals when you camp – the secret is to do as much prep work at home as you
      can. Need some inspiration? Look no further than Pinterest. Do a search for
      “Gourmet Camping Recipes” and you’ll be well on your way to some amazing
      meals. Once you’re at your campsite, you may want to take advantage of solar
      power to brew a relaxing cup of your favorite tea. And if you enjoy adult
      beverages, you can glam them up by bringing along some pretty plastic wine,
      martini or margarita glasses.
