When I was younger our family went camping every summer. Often we would meet my grandparents at a place like Silver Falls, Oregon or Spirit Lake, Washington (now covered in the ash of Mt. St. Helens). After driving through the camp ground looking at all the available spaces, they would choose the perfect spot and set up their RV. My family set up our tent camp next to them, and together we enjoyed the sights and smells of nature for several days.
Sometimes we brought bicycles and rode throughout the campground on the roads or took ranger hikes, depending on where we camped. I loved evenings by the campfire roasting marshmallows or poking at the fire with a stick and having my parents tell me to stop because it was dangerous. Once when we were camping at Yellowstone, bears came through poking around for any morsel they could find and scared us half to death. My dad rushed us all to the car and there we sat looking out the window at the big furry creatures until they wandered off. Those were the days!
Camping is still a favorite family vacation demonstrated each summer as millions of people fill campsites throughout the United States. One popular destination for both RV and tent camping is Marina Village Resort located on the banks of Lake Livingston between Houston and Dallas, TX. Here campers enjoy a wide variety of amenities that help make the perfect camping vacation. Two attractive pools almost at the lake’s edge, a playground for little ones, two boat docks, barbecue area, a grass volleyball court, mini golf, and much more make this the place that has something for everyone. For guests who enjoy a back-to-nature experience, but prefer not to camp, there are even cabins available for rent.
Marina Village Resort is proud to give away one 3-day/2-night stay valid until January 1, 2015. That gives the winner over a year to make plans and get to this beautiful lakeside resort in Texas.
