2. Where to camp
The simplest, if you are not used to camping, is to look for some camping near the site you want to visit. These places are very prepared, with all the basic services you may need and their prices are usually affordable.
If you are thinking about free camping, you should make sure it is allowed in the place you have chosen. To do this, make the relevant inquiries and, if necessary, request the corresponding authorization.
Once you’ve arrived at the perfect spot, make sure you put your tent in high areas and no canals. Find a good place in the shade, that is level and watch that there are no anthills. Before setting up the store, it is also advisable to look carefully if the ground is clean, without stones or branches.
Camp in an area that is not far from the city or urban centers. This way, you will not be so isolated and you will have more fun options, especially when there is not good weather.
3. Getting comfortable
It’s fun to go camping and spend a few days in a tent sleeping in a sleeping bag. But you must keep in mind that if you are not well prepared, the body will begin to complain soon.
That is why, if you are going to go many days camping, it is best to bring pillows and inflatable mattresses. They do not occupy much place and are infinitely more comfortable than the sleeping bags. With them, you will rest without problems.
Bringing chairs and a folding table where you can sit and rest and eat is also important.
