Some people just can't get enough of the great outdoors; they can't resist those outdoor activities. Hiking a mountain trail, riding a bike trail, fishing in a lake or stream, canoeing, and boating.
Whatever your pleasure is, the great outdoors offers it all. Some people like to take on some of these activities while camping. Other people, like myself, just like to relax enjoy the surroundings, cook up some great food, and meet new friends.Camping is such a wonderful family activity. When our kids were growing up our family along with friends rented cottages on a small lake just south of Lake Erie in Western Pennsylvania.
Cool Camping Gift Ideas:
This Landmann Firepit was my Father's Day gift many years ago. Now in the spring, summer, and fall, we enjoy our backyard campfires.
Although many people here in Western New York like their backyard campfires all year long, I pull the plug when it starts to snow.
Landmann fire pits are made with sturdy steel construction and come with a poker and cooking grate.

Square Pie Iron - Cast Iron
You can't possibly have a backyard campfire without cooking up some Mountain Pies also known as Hobo Pies.
My Rome pie irons were yet another gift from my daughter for our backyard fires.
These pie irons are a heavy-duty cast iron design and will last forever if you take care of them. I clean and coat them on the inside and outside with vegetable oil after every use.
If you don't know how to make a mountain pie you can find out how here: Mountain Pies.
I have two favorite mountain pies, one is pizza with cheese, sauce, and pepperoni. The second is apple and cheddar cheese. This Creative Pie Iron Cooking book is loaded with many more recipes for your enjoyment. These are perfect gift ideas whether you're camping or want to enjoy some backyard fun.
