Some national parks have long waiting lists for camping reservations.

When you have to wait a year to sleep next to a tree, something is wrong.

The problem with winter sports is that -- follow me closely here -- they generally take place in winter.

If you're not in New York, you're camping out.

My parents had us very young. We lived in a modest house. We built forts, we hiked, we went camping and they wanted us to be independent. It's how children grew up in the 1940s and 50s: outside all the time, playing in the dirt, riding your bike around.

I'm really an outdoorsy girl. People think I can't go anywhere without getting all primped up, but I love to go camping, and I'm totally fine with not doing my hair or makeup, not taking a shower and just hiking.

I've been very physical my whole life.

I went out hiking and camping for days in the Australian forest, and when I trained at drama school for three years, we did a whole lot on stage-fighting techniques. And I was a dancer from 5 to 18, so I have a memory for choreography.

When I was younger, my family would go camping and fishing on our ranches.

My dad loves being around all kinds of animals. He's the one who got me to be a really big animal lover.

There's some things you just have to live with.

Like twelve cars camping outside your house, and when you wake up in the morning, they're going to follow you wherever you go. It helps that I live in Valencia. It eliminates some. But they're still here.

I like golf, hiking, camping, boating and fishing.

The ultimate camping trip was the Lewis and Clark expedition.

Camping is nature's way of promoting the motel business.

Is that weird, taking my Louis Vuitton bag camping?

I was a Scout years ago, before the movement started, when my father took me fishing, camping and hunting. Then I was sorry that more girls could not have what I had. When I learned of the movement, I thought, here is what I always wanted other girls to have.

I, more or less, love camping out, so I dug it, but I didn't enjoy other people's pain.

Another thing I like to do is sit back and take in nature.

To look at the birds, listen to their singing, go hiking, camping and jogging and running, walking along the beach, playing games and sometimes being alone with the great outdoors. It's very special to me.

Well, right now we're so busy that I kind of had to put all the hobbies on hold.

But I like going camping with my kids. I have two daughters; they're 7 and 10 years old.

I went camping for 33 days, and now everybody seems to care.

Following my junior year in high school, I went on a camping trip through Russia in a group led by Horst Momber, a young language teacher from Roosevelt.

For sure, Potrero Chico is a super nice winter vacation climbing area.

It's really convenient to fly into Monterrey, one of the nicer cities in Mex, and get a taxi to Potero. Then you can just live in the camping area and walk everywhere. It's muy tranquilo, as they say there.

One can find a squalid America as easily as a scenic America;

a bitter, hopeless America as easily as the confident America of polyethylene wrapping, new cars, and camping trips in the summer.
