We like going camping before or after the holidays. It's so much more peaceful at the campgrounds. The 4th is more fun at home with a backyard BBQ and fireworks at City Park.

I replied to "None of the above".
We always tried to go the week before the holiday so that we we're driving home when all the heavy traffic was heading out.

We avoid holidays, leave the space for the folks who are still working. We don't miss the traffic.

Our local RV club usually has a campout on Thanksgiving. It is an outing for us retirees who may not have family within 1,000 miles. We get a group camping area, have turkey dinner and a big bon fire and tell jokes and lies, and roast marshmallows.

I stay home on holidays. Campgrounds are crowded, and it is quiet and peaceful at home sitting by the campfire in my own back yard.
Money will buy a fine dog, but only kindness will make him wag his tail.

Any weekend, any weather, any crowd. A bad weekend camping is better than a good weekend at hone.

No Ron, a bad weekend camping is better than a good weekend at WORK. I would have gone camping with any of you folks this past Memorial Day weekend, rain and all.

We try to stay home on Holiday weekends... Toooo much traffic-- campgrounds tooo crowded. Ideal for us is during the week at empty campground, or even better yet "stealth camping" at a free spot, i.e. USFS, State Land, etc. Larry

Ugh, I hate the crowds. Fortunately on Memorial Day I get to use a relative's land/pond. Notice how big the crowd is HERE:
