40 million Americans go camping every year. Whether you are planning your first in your life camping trip or returning to camping after a long absense, follow these tips to have a great time.

  1. Choose a great campsite

The first step is to pick an appropriate campsite. If this your first camping trip, pick one close by. I don’t care how large of an urban city you live, in there’s going to be a campsite nearby. Choose one within an hour drive so that you are not worn-out from travel before you arrive.

  1. Book your campsite as soon as possible

Camping is popular. And many campsites take reservations. Make sure to book them as soon as you can. Because they will book fast.

  1. Don’t forget the first aid kit

While camping is relatively safe, you should make sure to remember to take your first aid kit. Because it is too easy to get scrapes and cuts and blisters. Thus you want to make sure to bring along plenty of band-aids, rubbing alcohol and antibiotic cream.

  1. Bring your favorite food

Eating around a campfire is an important part of camping. And one of the most enjoyable parts of camping. While many campsites will provide drinking water, make sure to bring along a few bottles of water in case of emergency.

  1. Always pack rain gear

Humor writer Dave Barry claims rainstorms will travel against impossible odds to rain on a tent. He’s not wrong. So even if it’s the middle of summer in Texas, where it hasn’t rained for months, bring your rain gear. Because almost certainly it will rain if you don’t.

  1. Bring along the outdoor toys for the kids

You may want to enjoy the peace and quiet of the outdoors. But kids will want to do stuff. And you didn’t bring them camping to just have them stare at a screen. So bring along outdoor toys and games.

Millions of people enjoy camping. And you can be one of them. Use these tips to have a great time.
