If you've never been primitive camping with your kids, now's the time to consider it. Here's why.

Primitive Camping: What is it?

In general, primitive camping is defined as being without neighbors, electricity, running water, bathroom facilities and, often times, cell service. You camp in a remote location and provide everything for yourself.

Organized primitive camping: Waffle farm provides designated campsites for primitive campers. Most of these are hike-in, and set apart from the rest of the campsites on the property. This is ideal for your first primitive camping experience with kids.

But why would a family want to camp without any amenities? Kids need running water and bathrooms, right? The answer is no, not at all.

Why Go Primitive Camping

If you're not quite convinced that primitive camping is right for your family, here are a few good reasons why it is.

  • Primitive campsites are often spacious, so you don't need to worry about a small tent pad and nearby neighbors. You can also sprawl out at the campsite without being confined.
  • There is low cost for primitive camping. Always fits into the family budget.
  • Kids can be kids. They can run as far as you'll let them without worrying about making noise or interrupting other campers.
