camping with kidsLast weekend, kids across the USA discovered the joys of camping during the Great American Backyard Campout on June 23, 2012. But now that they’re hooked on the simple pleasures of exploring outdoors, where to go next?

Finding the best campsites can take some trial and error, and a little soul-searching. Not every family is ready to go backpacking with kids, or even wants to try.

Some families are happier staying at campsites near neighbors, where RVs are welcome, and amenities and organized activities abound.

Finding these on-the-beaten path campsites in NY is easy on the free, digital 2012 New York Campground & RV Park Guide. And yes, there’s even an app for it.

You can also explore the website by clicking on a vacation region on the map or using our keyword search on the FIND A PARK page. CONY has thousands of campsites – as well as cabin rentals, cottage rentals and trailer rentals – for all levels of camping.

Where will you camp this summer?
