Top 7 Camping Tips For Beginners

  1. 1.
  2. 2.  Ensures you have enough daylight to pitch your tent and get your camp situated  Less stress  Its really no fun to try and set up camp in the dark – we’ve tried and you don’t want to do it!  Have full day to enjoy  Why get to your campsite just to go to sleep? You might as well stay home, sleep in your own bed, then head out early the next morning
  3. 3.  Bring extra layers even in the summer  Nighttime temperatures can drop unexpectedly  Better to have an extra layer or two than try to sleep in the cold
  4. 4.  It gets darker than you can imagine away from city lights  The more lumens you have, the better – aim for over 1,000 lumens between all of your light sources to properly light your campsite  Propane lanterns are generally right around 900-1000 lumens. A propane lantern and a second tent lantern should be enough to be comfortable.  If using LED lanterns aim for at least 3 to spread around your campsite.  Flashlights are a must. Headlamps are even better.  Nighttime trips to the restroom  Late night walks or in case a return hike takes longer than anticipated and you get caught in the dark
  5. 5.  Pocket Knife  No man should ever be without a pocket knife, even on a day-to-day basis. More so when camping as you’d be surprised how often this little tool will come in handy.  Ax  Great for creating tinder or for breaking down larger pieces of firewood  Rubber Mallet  Perfect for staking your tent. Harder tools (like your ax) can be used but may break your stakes.
  6. 6.  Your tent is your living room and bedroom so why not keep it as clean as possible?  Remove your shoes before entering  Close your tent screen as soon as possible when entering or exiting to keep out bugs  Keep a small broom and dust pan inside to sweep any stray dirt or leaves.
  7. 7.  Lock all valuables in your trunk  Tents don’t provide much security when you’re away from camp  Place loose food items in your car overnight  Squirrels, raccoons, and other furry woodland creatures (including bears) will try to get at your food if you leave it out in the open
  8. 8.  The secret to a great camping trip is preparation and planning  Plan activities so you’re not sitting around bored  Plan all meals so you know exactly what you need to bring  Prepare for any emergencies that might occur  Bring extra clothes  Bring a first aid kit  Bring extra food and water  Bring extra paper towels and trash bags
