A time of bell bottom jeans and disco music, the bygone days of the 1970s were a golden decade for camping and RVing. Whether you were by the beach in the Florida Keys or out in the Adirondack Mountains of New York, setting up your tent back in the day – or pulling up in your Volkswagen or Winnebago – was an experience that’s hard to forget. Some things never change!
Thanks to the National Archives & Records Administration, there’s a great collection of photos online from this timeless decade, many of which feature campers and RVers out on a trip. We put together a few of our favorite vintage shots below. They’re bound to leave you nostalgic and longing for the older, more simple times.
