Camping is a great way to discover something extraordinary, get some fresh air and spend quality time with friends and family. It can be difficult to set up an early green camp. Here are our top eight tips to make your first camping experience interesting and stress-free.
5 Tips for a Camping trip
1. Choosing Your Campsite
There is a huge selection of campsites available for your first camping holiday. It should be noted whether they are considered “child friendly”, whether dogs are allowed and what facilities such as toilets and showers are available. As a newcomer, it’s a good idea to book standard facilities at the camping site and the surrounding town so that if you forget something, there are plenty of food and shopping options.
2. Purchasing Sleeping Bags
No matter what time of year you plan to camp, carrying a sleeping bag is a wonderful idea as the temperature can drop at night. When choosing a sleeping bag, pay attention to the time of year and the temperature to ensure that you will be kept at the maximum temperature during the year you choose to camp. Our Sleeping Bag Guide provides an overview of all the important questions when choosing a sleeping bag.
3. Purchasing Your Tent
Tents come in all shapes and sizes and it is important to choose one. When choosing a tent, it is best to choose one that is one size or two larger than the one that will be using it. It offers plenty of space to keep your luggage in the tent and provides a good night’s sleep. If you are not sure which tent is right for you, find out about our tent guide.
