Every summer, thousands of party fanatics will take to the water to find the perfect mix of relaxation and entertainment. These campers, commonly referred to as daytime partiers, have essentially turned their lake or pond into their own type of tailgating event. This allows them to enjoy themselves all summer long with all of their fellow campers.
If you have ever gone camping, you know it used to be simply about finding a location to set up your tent and fire so that you can be one with nature for a few days. You would venture out into the woods with friends or family members to relax and enjoy the peace and solidarity that nature has to offer. These events were typically low key and did not involve too much activity at all.
Camping has now developed into a massive overnight adventure that consists of exciting daytime activities as well. People like to spend their days drinking, partying and lounging around in the woods or on the local lake. Most campers nowadays are choosing private or state-owned campsites that have awesome nearby lakes and rivers. This allows for a variety of daytime and nighttime activities.
During the day, campers can do things like rent pontoon boats, kayaks and floating tubes. More than likely, most campers will load of their coolers with beverages and snacks, grab the inflatable beer pong tables and custom cornhole boards and head out to the lake to party like an animal all day long. These parties almost always spill into the night as camping has become more of an entire party weekend than anything else.
Two of the most popular lakes in the Unites States that draw in large weekend camping crowds are Lake Livingston and Lake Havasu. People out in the water will even latch themselves to other boats and rafts to make their own party barges. These are both enjoyable summertime places as people love to relax and spend time on some of the most beautiful lakes in the country.
There are of town of other places like this in the country where people camp and party every single weekend during the summer. This new style of camping that is said to have a lot of similarities to tailgate partying, is attracting more and more people each year. They love to escape their everyday reality, drink and party, and just get away for a weekend here and there. Traditional camping does still exist, but it seems like most people are making the shift to the more fun and exciting style of camping.
