How to Plan a Camping Trip You’re Sure to Enjoy

The great thing about camping is that it’s so versatile, it can be whatever you want it to be. Do you just want to get away for the weekend and relax somewhere sunny and pretty? Do you want a comfortable experience or a true adventure? Do you want a camping experience that involves hiking and getting in touch with the wilderness? Do you prefer to be alone, with your family, or with friends?

No matter what you answer to any of these questions, camping can be the perfect break for you. The most important thing is that you know what you want and that you plan accordingly.

The Type of Camping Trip

First, figure out what kind of camping trip calls to you. 

If you’re an inexperienced camper, a quick weekend break might be the best option. If you don’t sleep well, you won’t suffer too badly from a short break. You can explore the area or just relax. You can also try out some camping activities and equipment and get to grips with the lifestyle.

Glamping is perfect for people who want the best of civilization, while still soaking up the wonders of nature. You have the creature comforts you’re used to (some sites even have wifi), but the beauty of the outdoors is right on your doorstep.

But if you’re used to camping and enjoy a challenge, wild camping might be more your style. While ordinary camping typically involves a tent, a caravan, and a camping site, wild camping can be more of an adventure. Some people hike while camping, so they have to travel light, while others prefer to settle down in the wilderness.

The Right Gear

The type of camping trip you go on will determine your gear. You should pack your car with everything you need, which includes clothes, somewhere to sleep, food, water, and tools like a paraffin stove, and anything else you need to be comfortable. It’s also a good idea to prepare for emergencies. Even if you don’t unpack everything from your car, extra clothes, water, and blankets might be useful, and a first aid kit and flashlights are very important.

You also need the right kind of tent or roof over your head. If you’re getting a tent, you have a wide range of options between a tiny single-person tent that will keep you dry and slightly protected from the elements, or a huge luxury family tent that’s like a home away from home.

You can also stay in trailers or caravans. Pick the right one for your needs. For example, if you’re wild camping while on the go, an off road caravan might be ideal.

The Right People

If you’re camping solo, it’s a good idea to let someone know where you are just in case something goes wrong. Otherwise, pick your companions carefully. You want a group that’s all on the same page, and if you have children, ensure that they have fun as well.
