One of my favorite Memorial Day pastimes is camping. I think this is a given when you live in the Northwest. Who doesn’t love everything about summer camping? The tent, the campfire, the food? It’s all good. If you didn’t get a chance to experience the Great Outdoors this weekend, well, you’ll have plenty of opportunities to do so throughout the rest of the summer. And please do take advantage of our beautiful surroundings and three months of warmth and sunshine.
Below, I’ve compiled some of the most helpful articles from Coast about camping and hiking. Use them to enhance your experience. Enjoy!
