Below is a list of camping tips which will enhance your experience and help you to make the most of your outdoor adventure:
- Arrive at the campground a few hours before sundown to allow enough daylight to choose a campsite, inspect the area and set up camp.
- When selecting a campsite, be on the lookout for trees with dead branches that could fall.
- Avoid gullies that could flood in heavy rain and areas that could become particularly muddy.
- Attempt to find a site that has trees or shrubbery to the north and west to provide shelter against the wind.
- Look for level sites with ample room.
- Inspect the area carefully for poison ivy, bee’s nests or other hazards. Clear away any rocks, branches or other debris to prevent accidents.
- Be extremely careful with the campfire, if permitted. The fire should be built in a spot where it cannot spread. From the time a fire is lit until it is put out, someone should always watch it with water nearby in case of an emergency. When the fire is no longer needed it should be put out completely with water and soil until the ashes are cool enough to touch with a bare hand.
- Keep your RV on roads where it is designed to go and use marked RV campsites.
- At the end of your trip dispose of all trash properly or take it with you until it can be disposed of properly.
- Recycle products such as cans, plastic products and newspapers while on your trip. Note campground recycling categories. They may be different from those you use at home.
- Keep campfires small to minimize the amount of ashes and pollution.
- Don’t put anything into the fire pit that will not burn: plastics, foils, metals. Observe fire rules, which may change each day with weather conditions.
- Your favorite music may be your neighbor’s noise pollution. Observe quiet hours for generators, boom boxes and noisy games.
- Work with nature. In hot weather, use natural shade, awnings and canvas covers. In cold weather, park where the RV will be protected from north and west winds.
- Leave campground showers, the dump station and the campsite as clean as you found them.
