If you are new to camping and want to plan a camping trip, don’t worry, basic guidelines to make your trip perfect are given below:
- First of all, decide your favorite outdoor activities like fishing, biking, hiking, swimming, build sand sculptures, water skiing, tug of war, card game, capture the flag, hide and seek, photographing, look for wildlife, star gazing, and many others
- Now think about the number of group members and their varying interests. Choose the activities and a place that everyone will be happy with.
- Bathroom, electric supply and freshwater are not always available on-site, so also consider these factors before planning.
- The tent is a key piece of our camping gear. Choose right tent according to your group members and weather conditions! For example, if there is rain then you will need waterproof tent. And if your group members are more then you may need best 8 person tent or 10 person tent according to your group members.
- Don’t bring every possible piece of gear with you. Your camping gear collections mostly depend on the camping place and stay time on the trip. So make a wise collection and keep your tour simple.
- Check your vehicle correctly and make sure that its breaks and tire condition are excellent. Camping sites mostly away form markets and workshops. You cannot afford a breakdown of your car during the trip
- Make sure campsite is readily available. In peak session time, places with best views are already book. So choose the site and reserve the spot online in advance.
- When we plan a camping trip, meal preparation is the most favorite activity that we all like to do. Sometimes it seems difficult to cook outside, but we can cook all easily with the right choice of tools and proper planning. Preparing some things at home can save our time and effort in the outdoor.
- Be sure you carry essential kitchen items like fire-starter, cooking oil, salt, pepper, knife, utensils, pot, pans, dishes, cups and charcoal or Propane grill for camping BBQs.
- Avoid taking perishable food with you. If your menu requires perishable food then use portable cooler to save the feed. Plan of the first-day meal should be simple because the first day many other arrangements need more focus.
