Camping gives hassled urban dwellers a chance to escape the wild indoors, where man-eating washing machines and hand-clomping waffle-iron traps lurk for unsuspecting prey. Flee from savage household appliances with today's Groupon: for $48, you get two nights at an RV or tent campsite for up to four people at Lock 30 Woodlands in Lisbon (up to a $106 value).
Designated one of the Best Parks in America, Lock 30 Woodlands hosts happy campers with a verdant expanse of nature and recreation along the banks of shimmering Beaver Creek. Two nights at a campsite offer guests their choice of secluded forest, riverfront, premium, or full-hookup site, as well as water, 20- or 50-amp electrical outlets (additional fee for electricity), and an available dump station. Once campers erect outdoor domiciles, foursomes can absorb nature's scenic wonders with rustic activities, such as swimming and fishing, as well as the semi-rustic indoor game room. City dwellers can swap concrete jungles for games of bocce ball, volleyball, and basketball, or toss horseshoes at tree stumps that look like Lord Admiral Horatio Nelson.
Numerous off-site attractions include the scenic 11-mile Little Beaver Creek Greenway Trail and Beaver Creek State Park, replete with a historic pioneer village and working gristmill. Guests can also apply their Groupon toward a weekday cabin or cottage upgrade to accommodate bigger parties.
