Last year we spent two months in Florida so had 89. More than usual. We are retired and hope to get 40 or 50 this summer. Canadian camping seasons are short!

We both work full time but manage to take 2 different 5-7 day trips plus another 9-10 trips of 3-4 days ....
stay in Florida except for one out of state in the beginning and only seem to repeat locations for waterfront or music festivals many places to try!

Camping since May 2013 .... FL & GA only so far .... loving it!

Camping Nights Per Year

I am fortunate that my job allows of lots of time off. I am a college professor so I don't work in the summers at all, and we get a week for Easter, and then some generous time off for the end of the year. Last summer 2015 we did 110 days, and our best year ever was around 210 days. We live in a tourist attraction rich area of Michigan with lots of state parks, and quite often I camp at a state park, and commute to work, and even in the winters sometimes.
