Are you considering New York camping for the family vacation? I am not talking about camping out in a hotel in downtown Manhattan, but rather true outdoor camping. There really is nothing better than finding the perfect campsite in New York and settling back to enjoy all the natural surroundings of a New York camping trip.
It really is amazing how far New York camping has evolved over the years. The first sleeping bag was invented in the late 19th Century and was called the Euclisia rug. It was basically a wool blanket with a pillow sewn into it. Thank goodness modern day sleeping bags are much more comfortable and warm. Modern sleeping bags may also be a factor in the increase of the popularity of camping. Statistics show that 3 million more Americans have gone camping in 2012 than in 2010.
