The Essentials When Camping

Camping Tips To Make Your Outing Its Best

We are just now arriving at that beautiful time of year when the weather warms and tax season ends, inviting us all to shake off our stress and get outdoors. One of the best ways to take advantage of the coming months of great weather is grabbing the family and heading out for a camping expedition. When you do, use these camping tips to make the most of your time.

  • Fire: No camping trip would be complete without dinner cooked over an open flame and time spent around the campfire. Generally, 14 split logs should be enough to cook dinner over the flame and keep the fire stoked until midnight. Bring a little extra wood for just in case; you can always sell it to other campers instead of lugging it home.
  • Food & Water: Pack your cast iron skillet and choose recipes that can be cooked in the skillet and are based off of ingredients that can be stored at room temperature. Canned items are a great choice, and will save you valuable cooler space. Make sure each camper brings a refillable water bottle, and pack plenty of two-gallon jugs with waterspouts.
  • Shelter: Choose your campsite well. Do your research ahead of time so you can choose a site that will have the amenities your family enjoys, like a fire pit or picnic tables. If you are going to be sleeping in a tent, pop it up before you leave home to ensure there are no structural issues you should address before you go. If you are RV camping, make sure that your propane is hooked up and everything else is ready to go.
