3 Reasons to Plan a Camping Trip this Spring

Nothing feels quite as good as those first sunshiny days after the cold, wet winter. When the seasons change and spring peeks out at us from underneath the chilled ground, we know it’s time to start planning our outdoor activities. We’ve got 3 reasons to plan a camping trip this spring and we can’t wait to share them with you! Ready? Keep reading:
Lindy’s Landing shares the top 3 reasons to plan a camping trip this spring

Our Top 3 Reasons to Plan a Camping Trip this Spring


The sun is finally out, the chill has left the air and we’re ready to not only clean out our homes, but to clean out our very spirits! In our world (and we’re pretty sure your’s too), that means CAMPING! Here are our top 3 reasons to plan a camping trip this spring:

  1. Smaller Crowds - Let’s face it, unless you’re one of us, people aren’t making their camping reservations yet. This means you can get a great spot without fending off the crowds you normally see in the summertime. Spring is the perfect time to pick your favorite spot, spread out and enjoy the singing birds, croaking toads and lapping water without the busyness of a full campground.

  1. The summer heat hasn’t hit yet - There’s something completely different about the springtime sun that brings us out into the fresh air and makes us want to stay there, as opposed to the summertime sunshine that, undoubtedly, brings us joy, but also makes us seek the shade of a large tree and a refreshing dip in the rushing water. Book a springtime camping trip to soak up the sunshine while the temperature stays within welcoming regions.

  1. Wildflowers! - Springtime and the season’s blooms are synonymous! You simply can’t have spring without wildflowers! Pitch your tent, unpack your campground and don’t forget to bring a container or two to hold the fresh picked wildflowers you’re bound to gather on your morning hike!

Ready to get outdoors and plan your spring camping trip? We’re looking forward to seeing you! Take a look at our springtime camping checklist to make sure all your gear is in order and then give us a call to book your camping trip this spring.

How to Plan a Romantic Camping Trip


Valentine’s Day is on its way and that means everyone’s thinking of romantic dinners, flowers, sparkling eye-catchers, and how to celebrate the special someone in your life. Planning a romantic camping trip during the season of love is a unique way to show your Valentine that you want to create memories with them. We’ve gathered some dreamy ideas to help you plan a memorable and heartfelt romantic camping trip.

Lindy’s Landing has your guide to planning a romantic camping trip

It’s In the Details - How to Plan a Romantic Camping Trip


From gear to recipes to location and all the little details, here are our best tips for planning your romantic camping trip:

Gear - Picking the proper gear is an important detail for your trip.
  • Tent - Be sure you have a tent that’s suitable for the colder weather. If you aren’t sure about your tent, you can check this guide for how to choose a tent.
  • Air Mattress - Whether you’re looking for thick and plush or economical, Amazon has many choices so you can find an air mattress that fits your budget and your comfort level.
  • Duo Sleeping Bag - Staying snug and cozy will be easy in a 2-person sleeping bag.
  • Blankets, Pillows, and Throws - Making the tent snug, cozy, and welcoming is the fun part! Bring plenty of extra pillows and blankets to create the perfect atmosphere for snuggling against the cold.

Food - Picnics have a way of conjuring romantic images of playful couples enjoying the outdoors and each other’s company. Campfires remind us to get close, share a favorite beverage, and warm up together. When you plan a romantic camping trip, you get to have both the picnic and the campfire!
  • Plan for each of you - Nothing says, “I’m thinking of you” like being prepared with your sweetheart’s favorite foods.
  • Will you be staying at the campsite or hiking out to a planned destination? - Think ahead so that your food choices can be easily packed and prepared whether you’re at your campsite, or hiking up to a breathtaking spot.
  • Coffee or tea? - We all start our mornings off with certain routines. Even while camping, you want to be sure you and your loved one get your favorite (and possibly needed) beverage.
  • S’mores Please! - No camping trip is complete without everyone’s favorite camping sweet treat. We found this Valentine’s versions, and grown-up options too.

Set the Mood - The little details count!
  • Music - You may have created the perfect romantic camping trip playlist, but if you can’t get service or your battery dies, you’ll be humming campfire tunes instead of creating the perfect camping ambiance. Pack a battery operated radio as a backup. Do either of you play the guitar? Bring it!
  • Solar lights - Sure, the stars will be twinkling, but why not add a touch of soft lighting around the campsite and your tent?

Ready? This is going to be a trip that you’ll both remember for years to come. Get everything together and make some fantastic memories!

5 Reasons to Go Camping in 2017



Lindy’s Landing offers 5 Reasons to go camping in 2017


The New Year is here and that means most of us have made our list of resolutions. We’re willing to bet that at the top of the list is something about getting healthier. We have just the solution! Camping and being outdoors is good for your physical and mental health! But that’s not the only reason you should plan to go camping in 2017. We’ve got 5 reasons you MUST go camping this year.

No excuses! Here are 5 Reasons Everyone Needs to Go Camping

  1. Time Away From Devices - Let’s face it, most of us are connected to devices most of each day. Our phones are always with us. We work on computers. We rely heavily on a steady flow of information and communication through our at-the-ready digital devices. Unplugging and stepping away from technology is refreshing and healthy. It helps us look up, appreciate who and what’s around us and to be in the moment.
  2. Campfire Cooking - There’s just something so wonderful about the food we cook when we’re camping. No matter how we try to replicate the tastes and smells on our backyard BBQ’s, nothing truly compares. Try one or more of these simple but memorable recipes during your next camping trip.


Lindy’s Landing offers 5 Reasons to go camping in 2017


  1. Quality Time with Your Family - Our everyday routines are full of busy activities. Stepping away from the regular fast-paced nature of our lives allows us to reconnect with each other and focus on creating lasting memories through quality time. Even your beloved pet will benefit from the quality time camping offers.


  1. Reconnect With Nature - When was the last time you were surrounded by the sights, smells and sounds of nature? The sound of the breeze through the trees, moving water or birds greeting each other makes for a playlist that we forget we love. Breathe in the fresh air and hold onto it for several seconds while you let the scents of the fresh air rejuvenate you.

  1. Stick to Your Resolution to Live Healthier - You didn’t think we’d forget to help you with your New Year’s resolution, did you? Getting and staying in a healthy state of mind and body is always important and taking a little time outdoors is a proven way to achieve it. Even a quick weekend camping trip can help you start your journey to a healthier you. Give it a try!


We’re here to help you get started and love to welcome you, and your guests, any time of the year that you decide to camp in 2017.

Outdoor Activities for Fall

Untitled design-197.png


When the weather changes from hot summer days to the cool days of fall, it’s the perfect time to seek out ways to get outside and enjoy the day. We’ve gathered some great ideas for outdoor activities for fall. Yes, you can enjoy these excursions anytime of the year, but there’s just no comparison to the Autumn season.

Outdoor Activity Ideas for Fall


Take a walk with your camera - The crisp air, changing foliage, and wildlife preparing for winter make for plenty to see and photograph when you get out and plan a walk along a local trail on a fall day. Whether you bring a field guide for identifying all you encounter, or simply want to get out into the changing environment, enjoying and photographing the highlights of the season is a great idea!

Plan a hike - Seek out your local trails and plan an excursion with friends. Not only will being outdoors in the seasonal air feel great, but hiking is a fantastic way to move ever closer to your fitness goals. Active.com offers some great tips for preparing.

Camping - We think camping is a great idea no matter what time of year it is, but the cooler, dryer weather during the fall means less bugs and less people. Stay warm and comfortable with cold weather hammock gear as suggested by eaglesnestoutfittersinc.com

Fly a kite - The blustery days make for perfect kite flying weather. Farmersalmanac.com suggests making your own from two long sticks, paper and string. Need instructions? We found this great pin for help.

Collect leaves, nuts and foliage - Whether you’re looking to decorate your home with signs of the season, or plan to guide your little ones in festive arts and crafts, it can be fun to collect some autumn color to bring home with you. Need ideas for how to preserve your collection? Redtedart.com offers 6 different ways to keep what you’ve collected looking beautiful. (SIX different ways!)

Fishing - Why not give fishing a try? A relaxing day in the fall sunshine can be even more enjoyable when you sit along the water in the hopes of your first catch. Active.com offers tips for the beginning fisher.

Ready to plan that camping trip? Take advantage of the “off” season and enjoy the outdoors with no crowds and our winter rates.

Adventures in your RV might be most common in the warm summertime months, but just because Summer is gone doesn’t mean you have to say goodbye to the joys of RVing. It will take a little bit of preparation, but you really can enjoy your RV year-round. We found useful tips and videos to share with you for winterizing both the outside and the inside of your RV.

Tips for Getting Your RV Ready for Cold Weather
