When it comes to camping, you either love it or hate it — or you're in the middle: the backyard camping zone. Whether you're easing into camping or don't like to stray too far from the comforts of home, setting up camp in your backyard still counts as camping. It's all about sleeping under the stars, cooking over a fire, and enjoying each other's company without too many modern distractions. The best part? You wake up in the morning with a hot shower just a stone's throw away.
