Planning is the most important aspect of a camping trip, whether your destination is a secluded deep woods location or a paid camping lot at a campground. Mother Nature can deal up a large variety of challenges and obstacles, so it is best to be overly prepared.
Packing is essential to an enjoyable camping excursion. Comfort is important, so make sure to bring apparel for all weather conditions.
It is best to bring non perishable food items that are high in energy. Remember that water is easy to come by at home, but out in the wilderness it might be a challenge, so pack plenty of water.
Pack emergency items such as a first aid kit, sunscreen, pain relievers, and bug spray. You should also bring a map and compass, flashlight, waterproof matches, a knife, and nylon cord. More importantly, learn how to use these items in the event of an emergency.
Before departing, check the weather report! This will help you plan what you need to do when you first arrive. Try and plan on arriving early. It can be very difficult to setup a tent in the dark, especially in inclement weather.
Choose your campsite location carefully. Try and find a site that is free of natural hazards such as low lying areasthat are prone to becoming wet. An ideal location would be level, free of debris, soft ground, and sheltered by some trees.
If you choose to have a fire at your campsite, make sure it is away from trees and far from your tent. Never leave a fire unattended. When extinguishing a fire, use plenty of water, and or dirt, and stir up all hot coals to prevent the fire from reigniting.
Properly dispose of all garbage and waste products. Improperly disposing of garbage can result in conflicts with bees, other insects, and often times wild animals.
Do not approach wild animals. A wild animal can become extremely unpredictable when provoked. Keep your campsite and yourself clean at all times to help avoid conflict with wildlife.
