When it comes to camping, there’s no better way to experience the great outdoors than by tent camping. Tents are lightweight and easy to assemble, so you can set up camp in less time than it would take you to set up a traditional camper or RV. The following 7 tips will help ensure your next tent camping trip is an enjoyable one!
1. Don’t forget to pack your tent or Screen House.
Don’t forget to pack your tent or Screen House. You don’t want to arrive at the campsite only to realize you forgot something important! There are many styles and sizes of tents available, so choose one that suits your needs based on how long you’ll be camping for, and what amenities will be most important to have in a tent or umbrella screen house.
2. Bring a map of the area, in case you get lost.
Bring a map of the area, in case you get lost. Even if it’s just for peace of mind, make sure to have an idea of where your campsite is located before you drive away and find yourself wondering how to return home! If there are any other landmarks nearby (such as lakes or mountain ranges), be sure to write these down on the map as well.
3. Keep the campsite clean and free of litter.
Keep the campsite clean and free of litter. Not only will this ensure that your campsite won’t attract bugs, but it’s also a good way to keep other wildlife (like raccoons) away from the area. If there are any trash bins nearby, you can also place all garbage in them once you’re done with your meal.
4. Bring a tarp or blanket to cover the ground in case it rains.
Bring a tarp or blanket to cover the ground in case it rains. You never know if there’s going to rain on your camping trip, so you’ll want either something large enough for all of the family and their things (a tarp), or just a smallish one that will fit under an umbrella screen house tent. If you’re not sure what to bring, make sure you read the camping site’s pre-trip instructions for more information. You’ll also want to pack a waterproof ground mat just in case!
5. Pack clothes, food, water, and other necessities for an overnight stay.
Pack clothes, food, water, and other necessities for an overnight stay. You’ll want to bring enough supplies to last the group one night in case of emergencies or unexpected events (like rain!). It’s also important to make sure that everyone has their own set of bedding gear – even if they’re sharing a tent with someone else!
6. Leave no trace – don’t leave any trash behind.
Leave no trace – don’t leave any trash behind. It’s important to pack out anything that you bring in, including garbage and food scraps (even if they’re biodegradable). This ensures that other creatures won’t come around and make the area their home as well!
7. Get out there! Camping is a great way to get back to nature and disconnect from technology for a while!
Camping is a great way to get back to nature and disconnect from technology for a while! Once you’ve set up camp, there are lots of activities to do. Try to enjoy the time you have away from work and technology because it will be hard to go back once this adventure is over.
