Camping Made Easy!

8 Simple Tips That Can Change Your Camping Experience

In an environment of peace and nature, the last thing you want is a hassle while camping.  Here are a few pointers for stress-free camping while you're staying on Lake Lewisville from Little Elm, The Colony, Frisco, or maybe even further out:

  • Plan ahead and keep a checklist logged as items pop in your head.
  • Make it easy on yourself and try to pack lightly. Can you live without it for one day?
  • Foods that do not have to be refrigerated or cooked might be best for your trip.
  • Sometimes dogs have trouble handling new environments. Bring items to soothe them and keep them busy.
  • Using headlights while parked at night can bother other campers and is not recommended.
  • Do not leave food open or out as it could attract animals or insects.
  • If you’ll be near the wooded areas, learn what common poisonous plants and insects look like.
  • Avoid odors and hazards by setting up tables, chairs, tents, and yourself away from the direction of smoke blowing from fires.
