How To Camp And Enjoy It Prepare yourself to become a camping expert. What is great about camping is that it will allow your and you whole family to share a great experience together. In order to have the most pleasurable experience, heed the tips in the article below. Make sure you pack shower shoes for everyone in your party if you are camping at a public campground. They are great for those nighttime runs to the bushes when you need to use the restroom, even though not only will they protect your feet from the bacteria on the shower floor. They can be old flip flops, Crocs, or even slip-ons. Those big, colorful plastic storage bins make excellent places to store and organize all of your camping gear. While at home, keep it in a closet or the garage and right before you leave for your camping trip, pop it in the trunk. It should keep everything air-dry, tight and easily accessible. If you are traveling with children, give them the opportunity to assist you when you get to the campground. They can carry gear, support you as you set up the tent and look for firewood. Not only will it keep them busy and out of trouble, it will be fun for them as well. Get a big enough tent to fit gear and everyone properly. This will allow everyone in your tent to be comfortable at night and to easily get up if they need to use the bathroom. Take only photos and leave only footprints. That is the rule of thumb when camping. Only use the natural resources that you need and do not leave any traces that you were camping when you leave. Pick up all extinguish, trash and cover any fire pits, bury all human waste, and make the area where you camped look exactly as it did when you found it. Learn to set up your tent prior to leaving on your trip. That will help you make sure your tent has all the pieces and you know how to properly set it up. This will also eliminate some of the frustration associated with setting up a tent. Bring some plastic totes or canisters with you when you go camping so you can store any food products you have opened. This will keep any critters from swarming around your campsite and it will also keep various wildlife from being attracted to whatever it is you have in there. Remember to pack a camera. There are some memories you're going to want to capture on your camping trip. Bring along a small camera that can fit in your pocket. Try to pack something durable that could stand getting dropped or becoming a bit wet. Consider using a disposable camera. Camping in the wilderness alone is one of the most dangerous things that you can do. It is essential that you always bring at least one friend with you unless you are incredibly knowledgeable about the wilderness. This is not always possible, though additionally, bringing several friends with multiple tents is the ideal situation. But you do not have to be uncomfortable when you go camping, many people are deterred from camping because they have to sleep on the ground. Stop by the local drug store and purchase some inexpensive pool floats. These are far more comfortable than the ground to sleep on, and will keep you high and dry as well. Make sure that you bring items along with you that will make your camping trip more fun. Card games, fishing poles, scavenger hunt lists and other supplies can make hanging out in the woods more fun. It doesn't hurt to go overboard when thinking of what to bring for fun if you're bringing along kids. Do not underestimate the power of Duct tape It is an essential tool when you camp, so make sure it is in your box of "essentials." Duct tape can be used to repair tent poles, patch shoes, fix holes in mosquito netting, as well as many other things. Duct tape is a life saver. Never force anyone to go camping with you, including family or girlfriends. Some people just don't enjoy being in nature, and they will be miserable and in turn, make you miserable as well. If your children are simply not interested, find a babysitter for the weekend and relax alone! When you're finished camping and ready to go home, you should pick up after yourself. Keeping nature clean and preserved can allow future campers to enjoy it too. Before you leave, clean up any messes, you've made at your site and try your best to leave nature as you originally found it. Take a first aid kit with you so you know that you can take care of any wounds that you get on the trip. You want to take every precaution necessary when you decide to go camping. So make sure that you bring a first aid kit with some bandaids just in case anyone gets scratched or hurt on your trip. You may think it is not necessary to bring a nice sleeping bag if you will be camping in a warm area. That is a huge mistake as many areas cool off considerably at night. Secondly, a sleeping bag helps to mitigate uneven or rocky ground, allowing for more comfortable sleep. Look into the temperature rating of the sleeping bag you are considering. You do not need one that is rated for the cold temperatures if you are not going to be camping in cold climates. Finding the sleeping bag that will keep you warm enough without cooking you will make a huge difference in your camping experience. Learn how to mark the trails that you are exploring. It can be quite easy to get lost in the woods. Marking the trails that you are walking will make it easy to find your way back to camp. It can also help others find you if you get lost.
