Camping Tips – Where To Set Up Camp

Want to find the perfect spot for setting up camp? Through my many years of camping experience I’ve discovered some good ideas on how to find the perfect spot to set up your camping tent. I want to share these tips with you so that you too will be able to enjoy your camping experience. First off you want to start by finding level ground. No one wants to sleep on an uneven surface! It’s always a good idea to find this flat spot relatively high up and not too close to trees. The tree roots would not be a good place to lie on.

Make sure there are no large stones either. It’s a good idea to make sure the area you pick does not show signs of any water erosion. The last thing you want is to have a flash flood during a large rainstorm come rushing through your tent at night. One of the most important things to do when picking out a camping site is to look up above you and make sure you see a lot of blue sky! The last thing you want is to wake up in the middle of the night with a downed tree or even large tree limbs crashing through your tent.

I actually made this mistake the first time I camped. There was an unexpected windstorm that came through and it knocked down a couple of pretty large branches. Needless to say, it was not a very fun experience, so please be especially careful of this! With just these few tips you will soon discover the best camping sites and this will make your camping experience that much better.
