Looking to camp with/meetup couples with young kids

If this is in the wrong place can a mod please move it to the right spot.

We are based out of Columbia SC. We like Lakewood, James Island, pigeon forge, and open to other fun spots.

We have two young boys 5,7 and we have for a couple years tried to connect with people to setup camp trips with. Usually itís all talk and the others either never get a camper, or just do weekend runs to state parks which we seldom do as we havenít found the fun in that. If we had good people to camp with that might change our view on the state park runs.

We keep hoping to find folks, couples, who have young kids who we could setup our trips and sort of go together and hang out, grille out, kids play together and make it more fun.

We are early 40s but we know most with kids our age are prob early 30s. Thatís ok with us.

We tried once before with folks we know who camp. Issue is, then and their other camper friends are all empty nesters and their idea of fun is how many beers can they drink and lighting one with one. Well not all of them smoke but most and thatís off putting. I didnít go out camping to smell a burning cig.

We are ok with a drink and we have a couple but itís not my focus of entertainment.

We go most of our going through the summer as my wife is a teacher so we have 5 weeks lined up this summer.

Would love to hear from anyone or any suggestion on a better place to post this.

Join the Scouts. They like to camp. Did 60 years ago, anyway.

You guys talking about the Boy Scouts?

Maybe I wasnít specific but this is an RV forum. We camp in our camper and looking for folks to do RV trips with.

Sorry if I was unclear.

If you want to camp with other people , or families, go to an RV park, most are full of people. They have game rooms, community fire pits and organized stuff for kids to do at many

Thank you
Let me clarify once more. Would like to find folks and plan coordinate to take our campers to the same campground at the same time and get adjacent camp sites. Grill and hangout together. Kids play together. All that stuff.

I know other people are in campgrounds. But every time we find someone who says yea I wanna do that, as soon as it comes time to book dates, or actually get a camper, excuses begin

Try Facebook. There are some family camping groups that get together.

You can always post in this region (which you have done) with dates/places you are going & hope someone in the area meets up with you. Our forums aren't really a camping planning type of forum.

There is great need for a sarcasm font.
