Camping with my family reminds me of my childhood. It's the ideal vacation for a large family because you spend a lot of quality time together for fairly cheap.

A new survey ranked how popular certain vacation types were, like camping, going to a hotel resort and etc. Camping was up against some tough competitors and was ranked dead last in popularity. Men and women agree that going to the beach is the best type of vacation.

I personally love camping even though I hate sleeping in a tent, being around bugs and not being able to shower. I love sitting around a camp fire, tubing on the river, making s'mores, fishing and laying out in the sun on the river bank. Camping is great.

I think Minnesotans have a greater love for the outdoors and camping than most states do. Take my survey and tell me what your ideal summer vacation would be.
