I agree with all of your suggested precautions but the above listed must be followed. A little carelessness can turn into a blunder. Kids and babies are more prone to such activities because more often they don't know what they are going to do.2. I think taking a campsite close to any water (pool or lake) is a mistake for small children. Children are drawn to water and they move so quickly. If the water is out of site, they won't be thinking about it.

It would be better not to go on camping with the kids of this age .
The first time we took our kids camping my daughter was 3 1/2 and the boys were 2 1/2. We had a walk in site so we didn't have to worry about cars and we were close to the showerhouse. We also kept a small potty available in case my daughter wauted until the last minute to tell us she had to go. It was very busy that first time, but the next time the boys were content to play in the dirt with trucks and plastic animals. My daughter still drives me nuts bacause she never stops talking, but she is like that at home too. We've taken them 3 times and are planning another trip this summer. I would aviod sites with water access at this age.
We camped as a family at local state parks in the summer during my grade school years, but it was new to my husband. He loves to fish and hike though so I knew he would like camping too. The kids love it too.Welcome to the site plaz70 :10220:
If your kids enjoy being outdoors, I am sure they will love camping. It creates memories they will never forget. Did your family camp growing up as well, or is camping new to all of you?
