Hummm. Just being away from the constantly ringing telephone, the cleaning, the mowing, and the doorbell is enough for a while. (Interacting with guests, helping them with their RVs, and the like are things that I don't mind at all. It's not work.)

But after a few days, it's hiking and taking snapshots.

The term 'camping' to ME is an anochrism.
What we are doing with our trailers is taking our mobile cottages away from our homes. This gives us a 'HOMEY" Palace to stay while we engage in 'other' activities.
To me; 'Camping' is putting a backpack on your back with tent, sleeping bag, stove and food, etc. And heading out into the wilderness, free of any responsibilities.
THAT is CAMPING!😆

To me Camping is a state of mind! The level of accommodations is the only difference!

That is a discussion that has reared its head many times here on the Forums, and it seldom ends well— or seldom ends at all, for that matter. So to rephrase the OP's question in a way that keeps this discussion on-topic, what favorite activities do you engage in while Airstreaming?

Geocaching! Cheap, small equipment, you choose hard or easy searches, hard or easy terrain, from a wheelchair to rock climbing, any kind of weather, and it takes you to places you wouldn't have found otherwise. It's just plain fun.

GEOCACHING!! I can't believe no one has even mentioned it! It is so fun. It is so challenging! it is both a physical and an intellectual challenge. It started in 2000 and has grown worldwide. It is both an individual and a team sport/activity. The premise is that you/someone hides an object (i.e., trinket, coin, toy or whatever), you register it on-line at Geocahcing.com according to its latitude and longitude and other people seek it out using a hand-held GPS. There are contests, prizes, group gatherings, not to mention the individual prizes.

Check it out: https://www.geocaching.com/play

What a great bunch of ideas. In the 5 years I have been airstreaming I keep finding so many great things to do. We pulled in to Crooked River Campground in SE Georgia a while back and their were 3 airstreams in a row checking in. We all were so surprised. In the end one of the great things is meeting and visiting with all the wonderful people you meet. One of the couples we met that day in Georgia were so great.

I spend a lot of time in a lounge chair either reading, listening to the radio, or listening to the iPad. I also take several walks a day around the cg to look at the trailers and talk to the campers.

Fly fishing and photography. Wife likes to shop in local towns i.e. Freeport ME. Also I use the AS as a place to stay when at Wooden Boat School in Brooklin ME.

To me; sitting beside a 'lit' firepit, with your trailer in the background is NOT 'Camping'!
Being parked in a slot with ones trailer is just bringing ones wheeled cabin to a spot away from home.
That's what I do.
"CAMPING" is putting your 'house' in your pack pack, mounting up and heading off into the 'woods' miles from civilization and setting up your tent.
I did it for 35 years; Bruce Trail, Rideau a trail, The Long Trail, and so forth.
Winter camping, map and compass, bushwhacking...

THAT'S CAMPING!😃
