What we're about

Are you a single person over 50, or a couple in a similar age range, that would love to camp, fish, and/or explore Utah and surrounding States, but you would like someone similar to go with?

Do you have an RV, a trailer, or camping equipment? Let’s Go!

WE ARE LOOKING FOR YOU!

MATURE CAMPERS has discovered folks who would love to get together for a 2-4 day trip into the backwoods, find a fresh stream, explore hiking trails, or visit a National or State Park. Some of us are good at hiking, while others are better at sitting around a campfire…and we all have stories to tell. The idea is companionship and fresh air, as well as enjoying nature together in our great State, and you don't need to be in great shape!

We plan trips on three levels:

***Some people like to attend festivals, events, museums, and visit new areas and camp nearby;

***Some people would like to be in nature exploring, hiking, and sitting around a campfire with some basic facilities;

***Some people would like to find a flat place to pitch a tent with no facilities needed.

We will plan all three types of trips. We will identify campsites, trails, and scenic drives, make reservations when necessary, and members can sign up in groups of 2-4 (or more) as often as they want to go. We provide the opportunity to connect and get organized.

We also have connections with national groups that promote the RV and outdoors lifestyle, and who get together periodically for rallies and fun, so we might also make an adventure out of it and join them.

CARE TO JOIN US?

It is free to join our Meetup group for 6 months and get to know us. If you want to participate in a trip, you must be a dues paying member, with dues of $10 a year. When a trip is booked, the trip organizer will calculate the expenses and ask the participating members to share the costs.

We are always looking for people who would like to be a trip organizer, so if you know of a really great place to camp, please contact us and share your favorite spot!
