Camping That’s Not Exactly “Roughing It”

If your idea of camping is having a butler and all the amenities of home… The Resort at Paw’s Up in Greenough Montana, is the place for you! When you come camping at Paw’s Up your tent can include the following: A King size bed, en-suite master bathroom with heated floors and granite counters, a dining pavilion for everyone in your group with a fireplace and yes… even a butler! So the next time your spouse says “honey let’s go camping this summer…” you can reply “sure but Paw’s Up is where we’re going!”

For those that want luxury with a side of adventure, you can enjoy a 12-mile horseback ride into the beautiful Montana foothills to a smaller camp with large luxury tents. It’s not just camping it’s “Glamping”! The experience you’ll experience at Paw’s Up is truly glamorous camping.

Paw’s up is where “Nature is served on a Silver Platter”.

For years my family and I have been spending two whole weeks at Pinecrest Lake Resort in California. Pinecrest is a great campground with lots of great activities for the whole family.

Camping Cooking Tips

It’s that time of the year- the trees are full, the grass is green and the weather is beautiful. What better reason to go camping than to enjoy the outdoors and the scenic wonders of nature!

A camping trip can be so much more enjoyable when the details are planned ahead of time. The folks over at published an impressive list of camping ideas and tips.

Some of the ideas from the list  that really stood out to me include:

  • To keep warmer–wear a hat to sleep in–80% of heat loss occurs through your head.
  • Head lamps or snake lights hung around your neck can provide a hands-free light source.
  • Always bring a roll of duct tape. It can be used for MANY things!
  • Use a throw rug or a piece of outdoor carpet in front of your tent to reduce the amount of dirt tracked in.
  • Check with the campground about security and quiet hours. Be respectful of others.
