Camping is a fun time. You need to pick the best campsite for your trip. There are many options, but we will help you find one that fits your needs!
Location camping is choosing a campsite close to an area you want to visit. This type of camping gives you the most freedom and flexibility during your trip. But it can be less comfortable than other types of campsites. Location camping is often popular for its proximity to scenic spots or other major attractions in the area. If there’s something specific that you want to do during your trip, location camping will make it easy.
Pick-a-spot camping is when you pick a spot away from other campers. It is good for people who want privacy. But it might take longer to find a place where you can camp if there are no spots around.
How to pick a campsite
We need to find a campsite that suits our needs. We can choose where we want to go. If you want to be near water, then pick a site close by the water. If you don’t mind being alone, then pick-a-spot camping might be for you!
How to set up a campsite
To set up a campsite, you need to know about all of the equipment that is needed for it. Let’s talk about tents and cooking supplies and blankets too.
-Setting up a campsite is an easy and fun way to set the mood for a great camping trip.
-There are many different set ups, but we will show you how to set up your own basic camp in this article!
-Before setting up any equipment (or even starting on your site), set up your tent – this guy has written an detailed guide, you can check yourself.
-What you will need: One person’s weight in pounds for the floor space according to dimensions, a pack of stakes, and one ground tarp (or two if it is windy).
This can be done by using a tarp that is 14x14ft and has an 11x11ft floor. First, measure the corners of the tarp with the corner of the tent’s door.
Next, set up your camping supplies. Put pots and pans in the box. Add a stove or campfire that you can use to cook on, cups and plates for eating, extra clothes to sleep in, towels with soap.
In your shelter, you need a tarp for the ground and stakes to hold it down. Then you should set up your sleeping area. This should be on top of an insulated mat with two blankets or one heavy blanket and pillows.
Set up the kitchen when you are camping by putting out cooking gear like pots. Put mugs, spoons, and a spatula near the cooking area. Put knives with scissors and a sharpener in another place close to where people will be cooking or eating. Hang lanterns or battery powered LED lights around camp so there is always light near where people are at while still leaving some dark for stargazing!
Setting Up Your Tent
Set up your tent before anything else. It will take a long time if you’re setting up a whole camp site because there are many things to do. For example, it might take 30 minutes to set up a one person tent for sleeping or 15 minutes to just set up the tent and not do the rest of the work. You should bring a weight from 10 pounds to 20 pounds (5kg-10 kg) depending on how big your tent is, some stakes, and ground tarp or two that can be set with corners matching with the door’s corner.
Setting Up Your Supply Area
This is the next step. You need to set up a supply area with cooking tools, clothes that you can sleep in, cutlery and plates/cups. You should also have soap and towels so that people don’t need to go back into their tents wet after washing. This includes any kind of setup you plan on using inside your tent or shelter area.
Setting Up Your Shelter Area
Next, set up the shelter area. If it is windy, use stakes to hold down the corners of ground tarp around a group’s campsite. Then set up any bedding and pillows that will be used as well as cooking gear such as pots, spoons/mugs, and cutlery set including scissors and sharpener for those who have their own kitchen! Finally, hang lanterns from trees or poles so there is always light near where people are at while still leaving enough dark for stargazing!
What to do if a bear enters your campsite
When you go camping, make sure to store your food and water away from where people will be sleeping. This is because bears are attracted to food and drink. If there is a dead animal nearby, such as a deer or elk killed on the highway during hunting season, move it back into the woods before choosing your site.
Bears will go to food and water. Store those items away from where people sleep. Hunters may leave dead animals by the side of the road. Don’t camp near them.
