HOWELL, MI--(Marketwire - Jul 19, 2011) - With gas prices still a dollar more per gallon than last year, families continue to seek affordable ways to enjoy a summer vacation. Camping has long been an economical choice for vacations, but the stigma of "roughing it" in the wilderness often leads families toward hotels that boast free amenities and activities.

Taylor's Beach Campground offers families the best of both worlds with a modern-style campground filled with amenities and activities at affordable prices.

Like many hotel resorts, Taylor's Beach Campground provides everything you could possibly imagine -- a soft sandy swimming beach, clean bathrooms and showers, fun-filled game rooms, water playgrounds, laundry facilities, free wireless Wi-Fi service, sports and play areas, planned activities and much more.

"Camping has become more than pitching a tent in an isolated wooded area," said Alan Taylor, owner of Taylor's Beach Campground. "You get modern amenities, plus activities to keep kids from getting bored, for a fraction of the cost of a hotel. Our camping starts as low as $25 per night -- you can't even stay at the simplest hotel for that price."

Don't own a tent or a camper? Taylor's Beach Campground has you covered with rental campers starting at $79 per night plus a refundable security deposit. The campers sleep 4-5 depending on size, and are fully equipped with heating/air conditioning, stove, refrigerator/freezer, microwave, kitchen, bathroom and shower.

For those who worry about rainy weather while camping, there are plenty of indoor activities to keep kids busy. Taylor's Beach Campground has an arcade game room, a Wi-Fi lounge, indoor movies, crafts and card games, and nearby outlet mall shopping.

"With potlucks, community fire pits, themed parties and planned activities, modern camping is much more social than traditional camping," said Taylor. "Overall, there's more entertainment for families to enjoy."

Michigan Governor Rick Snyder and several Michigan legislators have recently declared August "Michigan Camping and Recreation Vehicle Month," to honor the generations of campers and RVers who come to Michigan's campgrounds.

To help celebrate Michigan Camping and RV Month, Taylor's Beach Campground is offering special camping discounts. Consumers can visit to download money saving coupons.
