There are so many joys to camping. With the star-lit sky, early morning birds, campfire smells and good times with friends, the only way to top all of that is to also be on the water - especially with summer in full heat. Leave the sounds machines at home and opt for the sounds of nature this season. From cliff diving to soaking in the rays, check out some of the relaxing vibes at these campgrounds.

Different forms of camping styles provide an array of ways to enjoy the outdoors. From car camping, to backpacking into the wilderness, to kayaking to an island for some solitude, each camping method requires different gear and prerequisites. Car camping is a great way to enjoy the outdoors even if you are in a campsite next to someone else you can still hear the crickets at night and enjoy the stars in the sky. (A nearby bathroom is always nice too!!). While this may be considered an easier form of camping, a decent amount of gear is still required to really enjoy the night in style.
