If you do decide to camp by the water, the best time to do so is over the fourth of July holiday as the fireworks on the water re awesome. When I was a child, I spend many summers camping with my parents and assorted friends down at horn brook. We pretty much lived there, dad commuted back and forth to work while mom and us children remained at the park.
Now days with inflation and the cost of everything going up my family has gone back to the traditional summer vacations. With soaring gas prices, and prices of amusement park entry fees camping is the smart answer to the tight budgets we all live on.
If you have a family member who has plenty of unused land in the country this could very well be the perfect spot for a private campground. My sister has 80+ acres in the country so we have converted a few acres into a private campground. We are close to home, so gas prices are not really an issue.
We simply used my brother in law's backhoe to clear out campsites in among the trees and to make the ground move even in some areas. Now we have a nice secluded campground in nature, with plenty of trails to walk. We simply pack up and go when we have a few days.
