Camping under the stars brings many things to mind: the great outdoors and a little peace and quiet on the one hand; a lack of running water and lots of bugs on the other, according to the AARP Travel Newsletter. But some campgrounds have bonus features that make “roughing it” a bit less rough. Check out these five fun campground amenities.

1. A water park — Cherry Hill Camping Resort, Kaysville, Utah.

2. Top-notch trout fishing — Tiger Run Resort, Breckenridge, Colo.

3. A 300-foot zip line — Lazy River at Granville Campground, Granville, Ohio.

4. Coral reef access — Garden Key Campground, Dry Tortugas National Park, Fla.

5. ‘Close Encounters of the Third Kind’ showings — Devils Tower Kampgrounds of America (KOA), Devils Tower National Monument, Wyo.
