Make Your Tent Camping Trip Even Better: 13 Simple Tips To Improve 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. What can you live without for a 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.
- You may need a mallet or other tools to set up your tent. Check your model and bring those items with you.
- Avoid camping under trees that look old or dead as branches could break and cause a serious injury.
- Pitch your tent away from fire smoke. Heavy wind can also flip your tent, so try to avoid it.
- Smaller tents have less space but are typically easier to transport. Decide what's best based on your needs.
- Trees provide shade but also can be more susceptible to critters like spiders, so it's not a good idea to camp directly next to one.
