Too many families are spending their vacations in big cities when there are so many wonderful places across the U.S. to camp.  Get out of your air-conditioned hotel room, and visit a few camping destinations for a change of scenery and some great fresh air!

The next camp site is further south, just over an hour south of Little Rock, Arkansas.  Petit Jean State Park is a great camp destination for families because of their picnic areas and accessible hiking trails.  They also offer tennis courts for the athletic members of your family.
