Camping is an outdoor recreational activity. The participants leave urban areas and enjoy nature while spending one or several nights outdoors, usually at a campsite. Camping may involve the use of a tent, caravan, cabin, a primitive structure, or no shelter at all. In many parts of the world camping refers exclusively to the use of tents or similar portable structures. Camping as a recreational activity became popular in the early 20th century. Camping is a key part of the program of many youth organizations around the world, such as Scouting. It is used to teach self-reliance and team work. Campers mostly prefer the national parks, open areas in midst of nature, a hill top, mountain sides and other publicly owned natural areas. Locations are most important in a camping. Here is a list of top ten camping locations around the world.
1. Three Cliffs Bay, Gower
Three Cliffs Bay is a bay on the south coast of the Gower Peninsula in the City and County of Swansea, Wales. The bay takes its name from the three sea cliffs that jut out into the bay.

The sea cliffs are limestone, about 20 m high, and are a popular destination for rock climbers with 20 climbs in the lower grades. The largest of the Three Cliffs is easily climbed if approached from the grassy base. The major attraction of this site is its spectacular position, which offers panoramic views of the Gower coastline.
2. Turner Hall Farm, Cumbria

The most spectacular way to arrive at Turner Hall Farm is to drive over the Wrynose Pass, a tortuous zigzag of a road, often single-track, frequently hair pinned and always threatening to throw your car down the steep sides of the hill with one wrong move. It’s an exhilarating drive that matches some of the best Lake District walks, view for view.
