New to Camping? Here’s How to Camp Like a Pro with these Family Friendly Camping Tips.
Don’t rough it
An RV is the best way to go. Whether you’re looking for a travel trailer, a camper, a fifth wheeler, or something expandable, we have everything you need to get you started!
Campgrounds fill up quickly! Book now to reserve your spot this summer. Camping in one of Washington’s State Parks? Reserve your spot online.
Try sleeping in a tent in your backyard first. Take notes as you think of things you’ll need on a full-blown trip.
Most people tend to bring too many clothes. Leave the “just-in-case” items at home and know that you can re-wear things.
Pack for Weather
Even if it’s hot during the day, the evenings can be cool—so bring an extra layer or fleece pullover/pants for nighttime. And don’t neglect rain gear if there’s even the slightest chance of rain!
Get the kids involved with a chore, like gathering kindling. Set up the tent first while you still have daylight. Then, if you’re planning to cook over a fire, get it going right away.
Keep it Simple
Don’t be overambitious on your first night. If you’re arriving at the end of the day, plan a super-simple meal.
Stick to Your Routine
Keep to your usual routines as much as possible, especially with young kids. Follow the same bedtime rituals and nap schedule to ensure a good (okay, a decent) night’s sleep.
Leave Your Devices at Home
Leave the tablets at home, dig out your digital camera (or forgo pics), and stash your smartphones in the car for emergencies.
