If you have little ones camping with you, pack a few art supplies. When you get to your site, show them how to do leaf rubbings. There are always a variety of leaves in all shapes and sizes, so trying them all out will take a while. The kids will be happy and you will have some peace and quiet while you relax and watch them.

Allow everyone who is going on the trip to have a say about the campsite. Think about where it is you want to go. With the many parks and preserves in the world, deciding where to go can be a task into itself. Make a list of your favorites and allow the family to vote.

Figure out your new gear before you go camping. The practice does really help. No one wants to get to the campground, only to find out that they don't know how to use something or set up their own tent. Practice with your new gear before you ever set foot on the campground.

If you are interested in camping, and you are new to the activity, then you should never start out alone. It can be quite dangerous if you don't know what you are doing, so it is important to bring along an experienced friend to help you learn the ropes.

As discussed in this article's introduction, camping can be a fun activity to engage in, however, a successful camping trip does demand both knowledge and preparation. Be sure that you take what you have learned here and use them when you're about to go camping next time. If you use the tips mentioned above, you are sure to have an enjoyable trip.
