  • The Silver Foxes is composed of retired adults of all ages. We generally camp at either full service campgrounds or state parks with well-established campgrounds. Rigs vary from small to large, and we have some longtime members who now camp in cabins (when available).  Our group enjoys socializing and generally those who enjoy walking, fishing, golfing, or shopping can easily find a small group of the like-minded. Sightseeing, some communal meals (potluck or restaurant), and sitting in the shade or around the campfire chatting are activities that we all enjoy.
  • We are not a fast-paced group, but we are active and interested in making new camping friends.
