This is an interesting question. When I first moved to Texas and tried to describe what lake life was like in the summer in New England, the question was always, "But what do you DO at the lake?" Only when the film On Golden Pond came out could I point to something and say... that's what you DO!

I really like camping and I tend to just let the DO part take care of itself should I get bored with "just" camping!

Beware

Most california state parks and national parks do not allow dogs on trails even if they are leashed. They allow mtn bikes and horses though. Seems unreasonable. Pet peeve of mine. But I like everyones ideas

Interesting. Fortunately, Oregon state parks do allow leashed dogs on hiking trails and most allow unleashed dogs on beaches.

Not yet mentioned - my favorite - photography! Nature, flowers, pets, people, sunsets, etc. The list is endless. Fun to download and select only the best ones to keep (after dark). Then label and catalog them. I also enjoy journaling every evening (on computer).

While that certainly does seem to be true south of San Francisco, which was a shock since I don't go that direction much, I have never been denied access with my dog, mostly off leash, at any federal or state park on the coast north of San Francisco. Does seem unfair, doesn't it? Wonder why the difference? The whole attitude toward dogs seems more accepting north of SF. In Mendocino, people in the stores kept asking me to come in with my dog, and finally gave her so many treats I had to start refusing them.

But anyway, back to the subject, when we camp far enough away from others that nobody is going to be bothered by it, I like to shoot arrows at pine cones and other targets of opportunity while I drink wine under my awning. The dog sniffs around at stuff, and Nancy usually goes off on a hike somewhere, sometimes with the dog. When we camp in parks where shooting arrows would be frowned on, we're usually away during the day involved in whatever local attractions there may be. Dinner at night is more of a community affair than it is at home, with me barbequing outside and Nancy making the rest of the stuff in the kitchen. We bring along movies, and usually watch one after dinner until time for bed.

Canoeing if we're near water. Swimming, water temp. permitting.

Some of our favourite camping places in southeastern BC are close to hot springs.

Hiking

Reading

In a lot of western areas, we like to drop the AS, then take the truck off on some kind of adventure. Nothing too white-knuckle, just more like exploring the dirt roads.

Hard to add anything new to the above posts. We try to look at our stops in advance and ID those things we want to visit or participate in. I personally hate to arrive and then try to figure out what to do. In general we enjoy walking, some biking in the park, swimming , and of course 4 pm Happy Hour. We especially enjoy grilling and smoking our dinners and travel with both propane and charcoal. We usually try to do something outside the park each day, even if it just going to WM for supplies. My wife quilts and I read, so for those bad weather days we have a plan. We do enjoy washing and waxing the AS if we're in one location for a while. It takes some work to not have a good time when traveling with the AS.

Other than RV resorts, state parks and campgrounds, we frequent music festivals, chili and barbecue cookoffs, organized trail runs, church retreats. Evenings while camping usually involve a campfire, pulling our camp chairs in a circle and playing guitar. Bad weather sends us inside playing dominoes.

Lucky us, the only thing that changes when we are camping is the scenery and location. Every day is fishing for Sam, biking for me, walking with the pups, taking in nature and all it has to offer.

Of course part of the enjoyment of travel is living in our FC.

I was fortunate enough last summer to go backpacking in the Tetons for a week with some family and friends and come back to our Airstream which happens to have a real bed !
