Tips for Your Next Camping Trip
As you know, we’re all about C-themed activities. Our recent favorite? Camping!
Camping is a fun, family-friendly vacation that gets you outside and lets you experience a location from a different perspective. Whether you like pitching your own tent or prefer the comfort of a camper, campsites have lots to offer. We’ll share some tips and tricks for making your next camping trip the best one yet.
Choosing a Campsite
Picking the right campsite starts with knowing what kind of camping you want to do. Some campsites are better for RVs and others are suited for tent camping. Once you hone in on a location you want to visit, consider the timeline of your visit and what activities you might want to plan.
- Book early: Camping with an RV takes more planning, so as soon as you know your trip dates, be sure to book your campsite. Some campsites require you to book at least 3 days in advance. You may be able to find availability at campgrounds with short notice. However, booking in advance gives you more time to plan your trip and make any other reservations.
- Amenities: Pay attention to the amenities the campsite offers to make sure the site has what you need. Campsites sometimes have a breakfast option and activities like a waterpark while others are bare bones. Consider how much time you will spend in the campground and what additional features you may need or want.
Be a Respectful Neighbor
Reading up on a campground’s rules and etiquette expectations will help you and those around you have a good experience. You should always leave the campsite better than you found it and leave no trace by properly disposing of your trash. Campgrounds have a unique community dynamic, so a little friendliness goes a long way.
Explore and Relax
Camping is a great way to embrace a change of pace and get to know a new location. Bringing bikes allows you to access trails in the area, and packing games gives you a backup activity in case weather doesn’t cooperate. Do get out and explore the sites around you, but enjoy the time you have to relax.
