Celebrating a Birthday at the Campground With Friends…and Bad Weather?

We used to scoff at camping close to home and would never have celebrated a birthday or holiday at the campground.  But things have changed.  Last year we realized that we could camp close to home and still get the kids to their baseball games (read about it here).  This year we realized that we could camp close to home and have a slam dunk birthday party with family and friends.

Our First Taste of Summer in the Skylands: Camp Taylor, Northwest NJ

When the Lively Little Campers Go RVing in our home state of New Jersey we either go South to Cape May for the beach and boardwalk or North to the Skylands Region for mountains and deep woods.  We closed out last season at  Seashore Campsites in our beloved Cape May so we decided to head back to Camp Taylor in the Skylands Region for our most recent family adventure.  Camp Taylor promises the “genuine outdoor experience” and it delivers on that promise in a major way.  The campground consists of 400 acres of lush and lovely woods...
