Camping trips are often associated with discomfort, minimal hygiene and cleanliness, and the dangers of the outdoors. No wonder that over a third of people dislike – or even hate! – camping!

However, a camping experience, when done right, can be romantic, truly enjoyable, and extremely exciting. But where do you start with planning the perfect nature getaway? Fortunately, there are some strategies that can help! Let’s look at these below. 

Choose The Right Campsite – Or Try “Wild Camping”!

One of the most important things is to choose a campsite that works for your needs and goals. In the US, for example, you can spend as little as $10 to $50 per night, but these campsites may not offer all the amenities you might want. 

Be sure to check that your chosen accommodation offers services such as electricity, WiFi, or even BBQ facilities for a more comfortable experience. Alternatively, if you are looking to enjoy a truly wild experience and you are an experienced hiker or outdoor person, consider pitching your tent in the wild!

Go Beyond The Bare Minimum: Ambiance Is In The Details!

Next up, let’s look at the details. If you are simply pitching your tent for the night, minimalist gear is what you need. But if you are looking to enjoy a relaxing and comfortable experience, you should go beyond the bare minimum. 

Some great ways to create a stunning atmosphere at your campsite include investing in a drink cooler, building a fire pit or BBQ, and even checking camping lantern reviews to help find the right mood lighting for your campsite. And, of course, you’ll need a guitar!

Know How To Add Fun and Comfort To Your Camping Trip

If you are looking to make your trip even more fun, plan some activities, including hiking, fishing, swimming, and kayaking. You may also add comfort by investing in high-quality gear such as a premium sleeping bag and mattress. And, of course, don’t forget to bring with you all you need for entertainment and relaxation, including a deck of cards and a hammock! 

Choose A Stunning Location

Choosing the right location for your camping trip can make all the difference. Of course, pitching your tent in a field may be a valid option for beginners. However, setting up camp for the night in a stunning location can make your whole trip far more memorable and rewarding. And, even the people in your squad who were skeptical about camping will change their minds upon waking up with a view of a beautiful landscape!

Treat Yourself To Great Food And Drinks

No, you don’t need to survive on protein bars and dried food! Since you’ll be camping for just one or two nights, you can fill up your vehicle or backpack with all the best ingredients – or, even prepare marinades, sources, and dips in advance! This way, you can organize a BBQ at the campsite or enjoy great food – which puts everyone in a good mood immediately! Just remember to seal it all up well to avoid unwanted guests to your campsite.

Combine It With A Pampering Experience

Spending two or more nights in the forest may not be the idea of “relaxation” for everyone. However, there are great ways to make the whole experience a relaxing and pampering one. For example, you may organize a visit to nearby hot springs or check yourself into a wellness center upon returning from your trip!
