CNN looks at the contrasting styles of camping, from tents to RVs, and even dips into the question of what is true camping. Regardless of your preference, there are plenty of people getting back to nature.
Some 42.5 million Americans went camping in 2011, according to a U.S. camping industry-sponsored survey that covers all varieties of camping from tents to campground cabin stays. Participation is up from 39.9 million campers two years ago. Nearly 5 million of those campers were tent campers and backpackers enjoying the national parks in 2011, according to National Park Service data.
