Remember to bring along wilderness-friendly activities. Entertain yourself by taking cards and fishing poles. If you bring your kids, these games will help to fill the void when there is free time.
People that are new at camping sometimes mistakenly set up their camps near restrooms. They do this in the belief that it will be very convenient, but quickly learn the truth. Bathrooms are a light source but are also high-traffic areas. Consequently, campers that pitch their tents near communal campsite bathrooms have neither the convenience nor the comfort that they may have expected. Don’t forget to watch your children. Cars and campers will be pulling in and out, and there is always the possibility of little ones getting quickly lost in an unfamiliar forest. Something could happen very quickly, so if you keep an eye on your kids, your supervision will help keep them safe. Make sure to practice food safety whenever you go camping. Store all food in airtight and waterproof containers. Also, use insulated coolers. Cooked foods should always be kept away from raw foods so they don’t become contaminated. And always wash your hands before touching food. Cook all your food thoroughly and chill leftovers quickly.
