Choosing a Campground - Guidelines For First-time Campers!

Dec 7, 2007
First-time campers are in for a treat with this write-up that is aimed at bringing you camping and campground oriented information and tips so you get to commune with nature and have a special holiday treat too! Choosing the right campground is an essential part of getting the holiday mood right and also add to the joy of a family vacation or build up marital relations, being a collective experience that is enjoyed by sharing with loved ones, including friends and family members! For this purpose, camping is a favored activity for strengthening important bonds.

However, for many, finding the right sort of campground is a real task and can take some extra effort. A good place to start is by asking around friends and colleagues who have been avid campers themselves as these persons can give the right feedback on a campground that offered maximum fun and activities. Searching the perfect campground online is another way to learn about other places but some websites may be more well-developed, graphically or data-wise than others, and thus you need to be able to filter out the information you require on campgrounds that fit your needs.

Campgrounds can be broadly categorized into two main segments, namely Private campgrounds and Public campgrounds; the first type allows for RV parking and house resorts for setting up camp (typically owned by a single entity or a business enterprise) while the latter sort i.e. public campgrounds can be associated with the state government. This second type contains a variety of camping grounds for the general public such as nationalized parks, state-run parks and camp grounds belonging to the bureau of land management areas. Choose a campground based on your personal taste and requirements.

Another place to get information on national parks that serve as campgrounds is by contacting the Park Net website or the Reserve USA website that gives useful data on Forest Service and Army Corps of Engineers; L.L. Bean too has a personalized information bank of major state-run parks you can consult.

Camping experts advice reading the minor details about using camp grounds right in order to enjoy your outdoor holiday best; it pays to find out Laundromat facilities, availability of electricity services and basic amenities such as septic tanks or sewer-lines. Close proximity to convenience stores and malls are another benefit you may look for when choosing campgrounds besides checking for added attractions like fun parks and gaming zones.

Before signing off, we'd like to alert you about remembering to take along a check-list for necessary camping supplies, which will prove useful in saving you frequent shopping trips to stock up on essential items, besides ensuring you have all the camping gear ready to make this a great outdoor family experience for everyone!
