If you have already reserved a campsite and packed all your camping gears and this is your first camping experience with your family, there is a lot more to think about. Camping is fun, but there are certain things that you need to do in order for everything to go smoothly. Below given are some of the useful tips to be considered while camping with families:
While loading your ice chest, make sure that you are filling it up with already refrigerated food and drinks and pre-cool it at least 8 hours before loading these stuffs. Also use fresh ice block for cooling the ice chest and not ice cubes as these block last much longer than the cubes and keep your food and drink healthy for a longer time.
It is better to go for individual backpacks while packing clothes and other things like toiletries as that would make it easier to locate. Make sure of carrying a garbage bag as it comes handy for keeping dirty laundry. Also, the bathroom facilities are usually few meters away from the camping site and hence, carry your towels and shower shoes.
You can use those storage bins that are made of plastic to store your camping gears both in your house and at the campsite to keep everything well organized. You can also utilize the bin to keep your shoes when out camping.
Tent Care Kit
All tents have an exterior waterproof coating from outside that keeps it safe from the harmful UV rays and any abrasions. To protect the floor of your tent, buy a footprint from your tent manufacturer and keep it zipped up even during the day to stop insects from entering it.
Make sure of unzipping your sleeping bag when not in use as it absorbs moisture from your body and that reduces its insulating power. By unzipping it you can keep it dry.
