Top Reasons To Camp Midweek

Getting outside is therapeutic for the soul and being able to stay out where you are adventuring overnight is not only more convenient, its even more soul nourishing. There is nothing quite like sleeping under the stars and waking up to birds chirping and being surrounded by beautiful nature. But this isn't news to most, and in fact, weekend camp spots get secured so quickly around here that it gives the impression that you have no chance unless you book months in advance. However, midweek camp spots are the real hidden gem and luckily for you there are plenty of spots available. Here are just a few reasons why midweek camping in Mt. Hood Territory should be on your summer itinerary.

Fewer crowds, closer to nature

A key reason to camp midweek is more solitude. This means you'll have better views, less noise, more room to roam, more privacy and a better overall experience. Let's be real, who doesn't prefer less crowds... in every scenario? Another bonus, you'll have more one-on-one time with nature. There's something about trees that are intrinsically calming. The protection they provide, the sounds they make when the wind blows, the creatures they house and the shade they provide all welcome you to linger longer. You don't realize how important it is to re-connect with the earth until you have and your body and mind thank you.
