How Much Does Camping Cost?

Camping is a perfect example of an outdoor recreational activity.  Campers usually leave urban areas to enjoy nature and wildlife while spending several days and nights outdoors.  A tent is usually associated with camping since this is the most commonly used shelter as it is easy to build and collapse.  The price for camping varies depending on the geographical location, the type of campground, the time of year, the facilities being offered, the number of people and how you’re going to camp.
