Camping can be a blast, as long as you know what you’re doing. You don’t have to be an expert or anything like that; you just need to know the basics. However, there are many misconceptions that can make camping less fun. Continue reading to learn more, enhance your next trip, and avoid any unnecessary hassles.

  1. You can only camp during the dry seasons

While the dryer seasons are probably the most popular for camping, you can camp during any season. In fact you may find that a dry day in the dead of summer is far less enjoyable than a rainy, fall day. As long as you prepare for different types of weather, you can enjoy camping all year long.

  1. You can let your pets off the hook

Giving your pet some freedom off of their leash can be fun for both you and them. However, you need to make sure that you keep an eye on them. Otherwise, your pet could end up lost, injured, or come back to you covered in ticks. You must also keep in mind other campers, and the rules of the campsite you’re staying at.

  1. You won’t be able to eat as well as at home

Sure, you could limit yourself to granola bars and cans of tuna, but it’s not a requirement. There are all kinds of great foods you can make while camping. The key is planning. There are hundreds of recipes online to help you get inspired. It’s a good idea to try and stick to ingredients that are easy to preserve, but if you have a cooler you can include fresh ingredients as well.
