They can also make their way over to huge lakes to fish or swim, and if they find an adventure park they can spend the day zip lining round the trees as fast as they can go, which is fun for everyone.

This is also where the disadvantages begin however because some people like the routine they have and won’t want it disturbed by living in a tent for a week or two.

Sometimes there are no shower facilities and people will need to use a solar shower, which isn’t a problem for most, but some people could feel self-conscious about their body when using one.

Toilets are another big disadvantage if a campsite doesn’t have the facilities provided, as people will need to go and dig themselves a hole to use or use a communal one, which many consider being worse.

For others, the freedom of being in the outdoors outweighs all disadvantages relating to homely comforts such as showering and using the toilet.

They also enjoy not being able to use their mobile phones, as these are an invasion which can ruin a holiday if someone is using theirs constantly. Whilst camping, people will also be away from the thick smog of the city, something many consider to be unhealthy. The great outdoors has nothing but fresh air, and most people consider this a huge advantage of camping holidays.

To break it down to a list of the core advantages and disadvantages, this is what most people think of camping.

If worst comes to worst, building a huge campfire and staying up late into the night is something everyone enjoys doing.
