How Can Camping Fit Into Your New Year’s Resolutions

It’s that time again! Time for New Year’s Resolutions!

But this year, why not make resolutions that you enjoy and have fun doing?

Let’s start with the perennial favorite “lose weight” or “get in shape”. There are lots of ways that you can stay active, but camping can make them fun! You could rent a canoe or kayak and enjoy the beauty of nature as you exercise, swim laps or play with the kids in the swimming pool, borrow a basketball for a game of Horse, hike the nature trail along the river or take a walk along the nearby country roads, challenge the kids to a hippity hop contest, get the family together for a game of volleyball or mini golf, or round up the neighbors for horseshoes. All are great ways to improve your physical health and mental well-being, and all are fun and easy to do while you are staying at Tall Pines Campground in Bainbridge, NY.








What about the resolution to spend more time together as a family? Daily life can be so busy with work, school, sports and other obligations and family time tends to get pushed aside. But when you are camping, you won’t have to make time for a family time, because camping is all about family! Family dinners take on a whole new meaning with steaks and burgers on the grill and roasting s’mores around the campfire and mealtimes will have everyone gathered round the picnic table. Plus, kids of all ages, grandparents and parents love camping! Whether you are together going on a bike ride, playing a round of mini golf, playing cards at your table, sitting around the camp fire, or tubing on the river, you’ll make memories that will last a lifetime!


And what about that goal to reduce the stress in your life? There’s nothing better that the peace of relaxing by the river with a good book in hand, enjoying the peace of an evening campfire, or listening to the sound of crickets chirping at night and the birds waking you with their song in the morning! Plus, what better time is there to put down the cell phone than when you are outdoors? Instead of browsing the internet, you could find yourself making memories with the people that you love. Imagine how different your memories would be if you spent time actively involved with each other, rather than on your smartphone or computer? What better time to do that than when you’re camping?

Don’t let these precious moments pass you by! Life is short and the biggest New Year’s resolution to make it to enjoy every minute of it. Get outdoors and get to Tall Pines to start making your memories today!

There are only a few more days until the New Year begins so why not let Tall Pines Campground & Canoeing help you make New Year’s resolutions you’ll actually want to keep!


Happy New Years from our family to yours!
