    Advantages and disadvantages of campsites

    Campsites are a great solution for family and young people's holidays: they are affordable and offer a deep contact with nature.
    Camping is a cheap way to make a beautiful vacation full of adventure.
    Campers can make many outdoor activities such as biking, hiking, swimming or sightseeing.
    Far away from the stressful cities, campers can relax and enjoy the benefits of fresh air and stunning landscapes.
    Staying in a campsite also allows people to bond together and make new friends. The common areas are perfect to meet other campers and socialize with them.
    Lastly, it is proven that camping has great health benefits too: it improves the mood, reduces the stress and increases the vitamin D levels. Furthermore, the mentioned outdoor activities give campers the opportunity to make more exercise which leads to physical and metal benefits.
    Nowadays, campsites provide many facilities: wi-fi connection, resturants, children's playground and comfortable accommodation like bungalows and suites.
    Camping has downsides too.
    Firstly, the equipment can be expensive and setting up can be complicated.
    Secondly, you have to share with other guests bathrooms, showers and the kitchen, with a consequent lack of privacy and comfort.
    Camping means also a greater exposure to weather conditions and animals (bugs included) especially if using a tent.
    To sum up, I think that camping has several disadvantages but the close connection with Mother Nature and the numerous facilities provided by modern campsites will ensure a perfect vacation.

    Re: Advantages and disadvantages of campsites

    It can be cheaper to stay at a campsite rather than a motel, that's true. Why do you use the word "solution"?

    Are you a camper?

    Re: Advantages and disadvantages of campsites

    Are you practising essay writing for some test? If so, do you know how to structure an essay?

    Re: Advantages and disadvantages of campsites

    It wouldn't be good for me to rewrite it for you. You need to think for yourself. However, I can make suggestions that would (hopefully) be helpful.

    The second sentence needs to be rewritten or deleted.

    With the third sentence you have the right idea, but it needs to be tweaked some, perhaps making it into two sentences.

    As for the next sentence, I would change it some. (It could be worse.

    That's all for now.

    Yes I am preparing for an English exam. Is something wrong with the structure? I would be glad if you could give me some advice.

    I'm sorry but I don't understand: it the essay that bad or not?
    It's really hard for me to change what I wrote especially because I can't understand which sentence you are reffering to.
    Thank you anyway

    Re: Advantages and disadvantages of campsites

    The second sentence;

    Camping is a cheap way to make a beautiful vacation full of adventure.

    That doesn't work. Perhaps:

    Going camping is a good way to take a vacation.
