7 Tips For Better Family Camping

If you’re planning on getting out the tent for a family trip away then you might be interested in finding the best camping supplies Kent has to offer. Once you’re stocked up, take note of these top tips from The Good Men Project to make sure your camping getaway runs as smooth as possible.

Before you embark on your trip make sure you do some research on potential locations you would like to visit, and seek out the best possible camp site for your needs. Check that what you do choose is open for the month you’re planning to visit as you don’t want to turn up and have to find somewhere else last minute due to seasonal opening times.

Once you know exactly where you’re staying look into what the campsite has to offer. Are you allowed to BBQ or are there food establishments on the site, and are pets allowed? Look at what the check in and check out times are so you give yourself the time to pack up at the end of the holiday, putting up the tent isn’t as time consuming as getting it back in the bag!

Not to put a (quite literal) dampener on your holiday but it’s always best to prepare for the worst – you can never know exactly what adverse weather conditions you may face and the impact that could have on your planned campsite, check out local hotels so you have a backup plan to fall on.

You won’t have to leave all technology at home, many campsites now offer free Wi-Fi included in your campsite fee. Your smartphone is also great to use for navigating your way out of vast woodland areas and countryside. They’re also great for getting up to date weather forecasts so you can plan out day to day activities.
