Tips When Planning A Park Campground Trip

Apr 25, 2008
Is it wanderlust, adventure or perhaps insanity that drives someone to get their outdoor gear together and just go? To not have a set agenda or itinerary, and possibly staying at a different park campground every few days. Is it something that you would even ever consider? Or do you prefer a more ordinary type of adventure and enjoy staying close to home?

There are so many interesting places to go to enjoy the great outdoors, more than we may ever get the chance to see. You don't necessarily have to have a set list of places, perhaps just an idea of what you really enjoy.

You may want to get a camper and drive to specific locations or you may prefer the whole backpacking, camping hiking type of trip. Get your tent, take your time and when you decide to stop, just camp in whatever place you have found yourself.

If you feel that you need a plan in order to travel, or at least a semi-plan, then you can always decide where you are going to start, perhaps a national park campground and then once there, decide on your next destination. You might want to talk with some of the other people camping in the area and see if they can suggest a great place. Most of these places also have a campground directory that may help you decide which way to head.

If you are going to be strictly camping, hiking or backpacking, then be sure to have enough outdoor gear to last through whatever temperature or terrain changes you may encounter. Also be sure that your camping equipment is in good condition so that there will be no surprises, or at least no bad surprises, along the way. However, there are times when even the best laid plans go awry, so it is a good idea to let someone know where you are on a daily basis.

It is not necessary to have a loaded rv or an exotic campground to park it in, in order to have fun while traveling. You could be traveling by camper or on foot by hiking.

Camping is more a state of mind. You may not have even realized that it was something you wanted to do, it may have been a little thought in the back of your mind but not something you thought you would see through to fruition. Yet once out there, and fishing, swimming or hiking, and being able to camp at some really great locations, such as a national park campground, you may wonder why you didn't do it sooner.
