Do as much research as possible in advance
When choosing your campsite, it is essential that you find out everything about it. Do you need to book in advance? Do they allow pets? Do they have space for RVs or just tents? What amenities do they offer? It is most ideal to check their website and make a phone call to make sure all your questions are properly answered. It’s also a good idea to check online reviews.
Observe the weather
Check the weather forecast regularly in the days leading up to your trip. You don’t want to just assume the weather will be good, plan your itinerary for the day and find out you can’t do anything because of the rain. The weather is unpredictable, so it’s best to bring extra blankets, more clothes, and some rain gear. Also plan doable activities that can be enjoyed in any weather.
Make a checklist of essentials to take with you
Don’t worry about packing too much, it’s your first time after all. You’ll learn how to pack light as your camping experience grows. In the meantime, stick to a checklist. Besides camping gear, food and water, don’t forget important things like toiletries, kitchen utensils, medicines etc. Always take extra everything with you. Experts also recommend trying out your gear at home first to make sure everything works properly.
Prepare for the long drive
In addition to the camping site, you also spend a lot of time in the car on the way. It doesn’t have to be a grind, it can also be a fun time. Prepare your favorite music, play games in the car, prepare food and snacks.
