If you are camping at a public campground, make sure you pack shower shoes for everyone in your party. Not only will they protect your feet from the bacteria on the shower floor, but they are great for those nighttime runs to the bushes when you need to use the restroom. They can be old flip flops, Crocs, or even slip-ons.

 

Always seek shelter before it is too dark to assess your surroundings. Once darkness falls, it is very difficult to set up camp. This is especially true if you are an urbanite whose sight is not used to the pitch dark. Set up camp before dark to keep yourself from getting into this situation.

 

When you get to your campsite, take your family out on a walk. Particularly, if you have children, everyone will need a chance to stretch their legs after getting out of the car. The hike will be a good chance to get everyone excited about the trip and involved with nature.

 

Make sure that you avoid any venomous plants. A good way to do this is to stop at the ranger station and ask what kinds of poisonous plants are in the area so you can identify them if you come into contact with them on the trail. Never eat anything while hiking on the trail if you do not know it is edible.

 

Never forget to see what the weather will be like in the area you will be camping at, prior to leaving. Lots of websites offer detailed information about average temperatures and rainfall. If you have the correct weather information, you will be better prepared with proper equipment and clothing.

 

Consider purchasing inexpensive walkie-talkies to take with you on your next camping trip to provide a way to keep in touch with everyone in your party in areas where cell phone reception may not be available. This can be especially important if you are camping with children and need to keep track of their whereabouts.

 

Make sure you have cover in case of rain. When you're out in the woods, a rainstorm can be wet, cold and uncomfortable. Make sure you have some kind of protection against the rain, whether it be a tent, cabin or lean-to. In a pinch, you can use a garbage bag as a poncho!

 

You need to take things to entertain yourself during your camping trip. Pack such things as cards, fishing poles or even plan for a scavenger hunt. Children often complain that they're bored wherever they go, so bring along as many items as you can think of to keep them entertained.

 

Your camping adventure can be a great one if you really are prepared and give yourself the chance to unwind. Camping is a great way to learn more about you. Use the tips shared here and you can have a fun and enjoyable camping trip that you won't soon forget.
