Camping in the great outdoors can beat a stay in a hotel. Front-country camping, also known as car camping, means driving to a campground and pulling up to a designated campsite, often not far from home.
A first-time camping experience can be comfortable with the right camping gear, guidance, and helpful tips.
Bringing the right gear is key to comfortable camping.
The minimum needs are:
These can be expanded to include equipment for:
A developed campground is best for beginner campers as they have dedicated campsites to park a car or RV, potable water and restroom facilities. They also have picnic tables and fire rings.
Use the internet to find campgrounds in the desired area of travel, such as national park campgrounds.
It's good practice to set up a tent long before nightfall on a cleared, flat area.
The beginner tent consists of tent poles, tent stakes, the tent body and rain cover (also known as a rainfly of fly.) Some tents also come with an extra floor, known as a footprint, that goes under the tent.
Comfort is critical for every camper. The best way to get a good night sleep is to keep everything relatively dry, warm, and off the ground.
Many campers build up their "camp kitchen" over the years.
Every developed campsite offers a bathroom.
Primitive camping is spending the night outside of a designated campground. It is most often done in national forests or on crown land. Primitive camping is usually free but does not include amenities such as water, bathrooms, or electricity.
Backpacking involves carrying a tent and all camping supplies in a backpack. Backpackers follow trails and camp in the wilderness without any fixed amenities.

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
