Camping is beginning to gain a wide appeal by Lebanon's youth. As a result, several campsites have sprung up across the country to accommodate campers during the summer season from May till September. Some of these camps are well equipped with facilities and have the capacity to accommodate large groups of people. While other sites are smaller in size and are intended for small families and couples.

Indeed, camping can be an economic way for nature-lovers and those with a limited budget to discover the rich wilderness and national heritage of Lebanon.
