Camping Today [April]

Family Campers
Your April online and PDF versions of ‘Camping Today ‘can be found here:

We are very excited to debut in this April publication the DeWayne Johnston ‘Camping Today’ Historical Archives! You can now view in PDF form an archive of ‘Camping Today’ issues from decades past, spanning back to 1989. This Archive can be found at the bottom of any online issue going forward.

The “Camping Today” team recently received Paul Standiford’s resignation from the team. We appreciate his work and assistance in publishing “Camping Today”. He was instrumental in providing the pdf version and in providing fillable forms. The PDF version over the next few issues will be more rudimentary while the current staff adapts to taking over the responsibilities Paul was overseeing.
