When you think about camping, does your mind automatically think of a tent and a fire? Or is it more of an RV in a campground? Do you have arguments of whether or not your way of “sleeping outside” is actually camping? Well, opinions of all kinds obviously exist, but it’s true: camping exists in many forms. So whether you’re a newbie to camping and you don’t know where to start, or you’re a seasoned pro looking for inspiration, here are some kinds of camping to get you started on your next getaway. To backcountry camp, you generally have to go somewhere inaccessible from roads. It can be a mile away from the trailhead or somewhere in the middle of a mountain range during a weeklong trek. The point is you’re away from civilization. You pack in what you can carry, are never without a Swiss Army Knife, and (hopefully) pack out all of your waste and leave everything looking as good (or better) than when you came.

To be honest, it was the most amazing camping expedition we've ever taken in our lives. The accommodations were top notch. The hospitality the staff showed us was extremely professional and exceeded our expectations. We felt safe and well taken care of throughout our entire visit. I highly recommend Total Eclipse Total Budget Camp to any family or anyone for that matter, searching for an incredible camping experience!!
Trout Creek Camp was more that satisfactory. All staff members were polite and helpful. Accommodations were more than adequate for the traffic and crowding. The facilities were well maintained, I would love to see growth in this venue. The weather was perfect - never too warm and just cool enough. The primitive camp sites run along a babbling brook which made for a pleasant and relaxing evening soundtrack. There is access to trails, waterways, and more raw land that one could access in one vacation. I encourage this camp to everyone looking to get away.
We had a fine time at Total Eclipse Total Budget Camp. The camp had only recently (like maybe in the past few days) been re-opened to handle the eclipse-caused overflow from other camps in the area. But the staff people were marvelous - friendly and helpful -- and we had a charming site right on Trout Creek.
This was a good bargin for the eclipse the next day. Otherwise I don't think I would have enjoyed it. There was some running water though not at every canp site. The only bathrooms were port-a-johns that were not super clean. Like I said, good deal for the event but overall the site needs some maintenance.
Terry and his whole crew were fantastic! Recognizing the need for more space, Terry prepared and opened up his beautiful property to all of us Solar Eclipse campers! My boyfriend and I found out he was able to get off work on Thursday, and we had fruitlessly looked for somewhere to camp. We aren't impulsive people, but we drove down Saturday with cautious optimism, and were able to make a reservation for Bear Creek/Turtle Creek that afternoon as we were on our way!
I can't say enough about how welcoming Terry, his crew, and the campgrounds are! We will absolutely be back, with friends!
We had a perfect creekside site!
We loved the small campground and it was quiet especially considering it was Memorial Day weekend. We had a perfect creekside site and my kids played in the water and on a small sand beach for hours. We will definitely be back! Friendly owners who went out of their way to make sure our stay was nice.
Overall, it was a great place to stay! The two downsides were related to how popular and busy it was.
There were too many people there too close together for our liking. The lots are close together. I've never RV'ed before, so perhaps this is normal, but I think we were hoping for a more quiet and serene experience.
And they have WiFi, but it was unusable during the daytime due to the number of people trying to use it. It worked late in the evening and even better early in the morning.
The staff was great, however. Super attentive and helpful. Offered everything from firewood to picnic tables.
Thanks for a great experience!
