Camping in Door County

Camping? Yes, a tent, no less. Since camping is one of the cheapest forms of vacationing, away we went for a few days. We figure it's better to go somewhere and camp for $15 a night and bring all of our food when money is a little tight then not go anywhere at all. Besides kids just LOVE camping! We went to one of our favorite places--Door County, Wisconsin--and stayed at Peninsula State Park (yes, it has hot showers and flush toilets!). It is a beautiful park and the whole area is quaint and pretty with little shops galore and gorgeous views of Lake Michigan. We saw plenty of sailboats and even visited a lighthouse--the Cana Island Light, pictured above. We had fun around the campfire at night where we popped Jiffy Pop popcorn and burned fallen cedar that we found in the surrounding woods (talk about good smells!). It was refreshing and fun...even though we got very little sleep...and a worthwhile trip.
