Chances are that sometime in your life you have either camped with family or friends, or you have thought about it. Either way, the best way to get right down to the basics is camping in a tent. Camping in a tent can be a great adventure. It is a great way to get in touch with your family, as it can be a good bonding tool as well. You can get in touch with nature and do things the old-fashioned way by cooking over an open fire and sleeping close to the earth under the stars.

If you are considering going camping in a tent then you need to know a few basics of camping. First you will need to know what size of a tent that you will need. You need to know how many people will be sleeping in the tent. There are many different sizes of tents out on the market today. You can sleep anywhere from one to ten, in most family tents.

There are tents that have a few rooms, making your experience feel more like home as you can have one room as the bedroom, one for storing all of your stuff and as a dressing room and then you can use the screened in room as the porch. Many of the tents with a screened room can fit a table and chairs in it making it the best option for bug free eating and gathering outdoors with your camping buddies.

There are many types of tents to choose from. You can go with a quick set up with a dome tent, many of them assemble easily with poles that are connected with an elastic rope. This makes setups a snap as all you have to do, is put the pole through the holes and slip it into the pockets at the bottom, allowing the tent to stand up almost instantly.

You can also get frame tents that are very sturdy when it comes to weathering the natural elements. They may not offer the comfort of many room options but the durable appeal may out weigh those options. So you see there is a tent to meet whatever your need may be. The key to great camping in a tent, is to know what kind of tent you need to meet your need and how many people you will need to accommodate.

Camping is a fun and friendly way to reconnect with your family and friends and is also a great way to get back in touch with your inner child. Camping is a great release for stress and helps you get back to happy times. Do some homework when getting ready to choose the tent that is right for you and your family. You want to make sure that the tent meets the needs of everyone.

Do some home work and ask your self a few questions before making your purchase. Questions like: How many people will be camping in the tent? Will we need to store a great deal of gear in the tent? Do we need to have a screened in sitting room? What seasons will we be using it for and what will the weather be like? These questions will help you with what size of a tent you will need. Some people may like to camp in the cooler weather so they may want to go with a tent that is made for all seasons.

Camping in a tent is a great way to get back in touch with your family. You can sing songs and tell stories at the campfire. You can make delicious smores for all to enjoy. You can get everyone involved in a hike through the woods looking for many different things. Some campgrounds have bike trails as well so bring along the bicycles and get some fresh air and exercise with the whole family. No matter what you choose to do on your camping excursion, you can be sure that the whole family will have a great time.
