Vintage Photos of Camping in the 1950s

Camping in the 1950s was a decidedly mainstream affair. Since the end of World War II, it had become a broadly popular choice for the summer family vacation, itself increasingly an expected annual ritual. Families clamored for campsites in the many loop campgrounds in public parks and forest preserves.

Touted across the popular press, campgrounds became a prime stage to perform newly idealized family roles and camping a privileged method for producing the coveted sense of “family togetherness.”
