Camping Season

I was just thinking that there isn't an "Official Camping Season" day to start it all. We have duck season, rabbit season, fall, spring, Fat Tuesday. Where's Camping Season? I'm wondering if everyone out there has their own start to the season, or is it simply weather dependent? Can you imagine having a specific calander day for camping season, where everyone is fighting to get off work, and calling in sick, and " I can't talk right now it's Camping Season". Driving through the neighborhood and people are flinging things out the front door towards the the truck all in a hurry to start "Camping Season". I always read and hear " I can't wait for Camping Season". Sooooooo when is your Camping Season?

For me, it's whenever I can come up with time off and family or friends to go camping with. I hope one day, in the not-too-distant-future to be a full-time camping season person. If we could get Hallmark to see a potential in card sales there would be a specific day!!!

For us, camping season starts the week of spring break, usually mid March in Alabama for high schools. We still have one in school but this the last year that for that and camping season may change. We take a trip about every 6 weeks until we wind it up in November. Some of those trips are 3 and 4 day weekends around holidays.

Our camping season starts when the weather breaks and when it dries up enough to get the camper out of the yard. It's usually late march early april and we camp until late october.

Mine starts on January 1st, and ends on December 31st. Now that I RV, I’m *always* seeing motorhomes and trailers cruising the local freeways…and feel that twinge of jealousy since my trailer isn’t following *me*.

Ours usually starts mid May and runs till late October to early November. We usually pull the trailer out of storage in April. Most of the campgrounds around us don't even open till mid to late April.
