Would love to hear from the OP! It's good manners to at least post a reply when you have started a thead.

I will put a different spin on this. Ok, what is your family 'thing'? Boats, Hiking, Bicycles, Amusement Parks or other? To me it is simple. If you do not have a 'thing' camping is better than most. If you look at other people most (not all) will have a 'thing'. Around me I see Motorcycle guys, Boat guys, Camping guys, Golf guys, then Home guys working on their lawn.

Gotta pick one or two things.

One thing for sure...Camping sure beats the heck out of mowing the lawn!

Happy Camping!

GO FOR IT! My parents drug us cross country in a station wagon and old Army surplus tent when we were kids. I know we fought, I know we were uncomfortable at times, I know we got tired and cranky but ya know what?!?... That's not what we remember! We remember the campfires, the hikes, funny things Mom & Dad said or did, some of the parks and scenery we saw on our trips & even waking to a 6" snow in Yellowstone one summer when we crawled out of that tent! We graduated to a popup and did it again a few times and the memories are priceless.

You will be making memories for your kids that will outlast you. My Dad is gone now but memories of him on those trips will always be with me. My mom is almost 90 and we talk about those trips a lot now that my DH & I are traveling to many of the places I saw with her as a kid.

IMO, which doesn't count for anything, maybe try a tent and "camp" in the backyard a couple of times. If you've moved on from that, then a popup would be my choice. There are lots of nice used ones that are reasonably priced.

Whatever... just DO IT! Get those kids outside and instill respect & love of the outdoors and our beautiful country.
