Looking On The Bright Side of Camping

Tips on Selecting a Good Campsite

Escaping into the wild can be a pleasant experience to get away from all the hustle and bustle of the town life and have a quiet moment with nature. If an individual wants to enjoy a camping experience they have to select a good camping site and in getting a good campsite there are some things to look into such as the ground surface because this is where the person will sleep and it is important to select a spot that has a flat surface to pitch the tent or they may have a restless night due to the rough contours on the ground. The ground has to be flat with no sharp protrusions and this will help the person to sleep soundly so that they can wake up ready to face the day and the best places to camp are flat areas that have grass or that have sand.

After selecting a flat surface to pitch a tent the next thing to look into is shade and though having shade throughout the day is not a just but in the morning there must be shade and being woken up in the morning by the blazing hot sun is not fun at all and it adds to the morning misery but this can be avoided by choosing a spot that has some morning cover. In areas like the desert then having shade during the day is nice and in this areas the best thing is to look for a flat area that has some bushes or trees or the camper can just choose to bring their own shade and place it in an open area while taking into consideration desert winds.

Another factor to consider is what is above the camper and the camper needs to be aware of this for safety purposes because sleeping under a dead tree is dangerous because the camper does not know when the tree will give in and other hazardous areas include below rock slides, avalanche paths and below loose rock ledges. After looking at what is above them the camper needs to look at what is around them and they should avoid areas like the edge of water due to bugs, a flooding risk and thirsty animals but at times being close to a water body is good especially when the person does not have their own water and thus they need to be near the water body so that they can easily access the water.
