If you haven’t booked at spot at Roaring Camp Gold for the camping season yet, then now is a great time to do so.  Not only will it give you the opportunity to pan for gold, it can also be good for your health.

Get Away From All of Those Screens

They are bad for your eyes, bad for your neck and back, and, of course, bad for your emotional state.  It is good to speak with people face to face, to be moving and exploring nature, away from technology for a time.  Excessive use of smartphones, tablets, and other such devices has been linked with high anxiety levels, sleep deprivation, and depression.

Get Your Sleep Back on Schedule

Extensive research has been done in an effort to find a cure for insomnia and other sleep loss issues.  Millions of Americans struggle to get to sleep and stay asleep through the night.  Those studies have found, over and over again, that when a person follows the sun’s schedule, falling asleep when dark settles, and rising with the sun, they achieve a more restful night.  In order to follow the sun’s schedule, though, you have to get away from all of the artificial lighting, which fools the body into thinking that it is not yet time for sleep.  Camping can most certainly do that for you.

Get Some Exercise

Not only can you find a good night’s sleep at the campground, you can also find plenty of exercise disguised as fun.  There are trails to hike or bike, there is plenty of opportunity for fishing and wading in the water.  All of this is great for your health and can help you burn several hundred calories per day.

At Roaring Camp Gold, you can stand to burn even more calories in a single day.  Digging, panning, and working through the gold prospecting process is physical exercise in its own right.  The best part?  You’ll be so caught up in the thrill of the hunt for gold that you won’t even realize that you are burning calories.
