    I didn’t do much camping growing up but I’ve been wanting to try it lately so these are great tips, thanks! One of the things I was worried about is pitching a tent by myself. I do think it’s a good idea to get a tent that is rated for lower temps to keep you comfortable or even try a hammock instead. Your photos are great — much inspiration.

        All of these tips are great especially for somebody inexperienced like me. Whenever I plan to do camping, something or other will ruin that plan but I would like to go on an actual camping and would try to apply these tips.

    Camping like this has always intrigued me. I am so not a tent person, but I think if I had the right environment and the right teacher, I would love to actually do this. I love the idea of making sure to give someone your itinerary and a map of where you are going. That is a great way to stay safe for sure..

    I’m not a big camper, but the rest of my family loves it so I will share the tips. These are all so important because we camp with our kids it’s almost as if we are solo camping as we are in charge of dependent little ones.

    I have loved camping my entire life but the thought of solo camping has always left me feeling quite nervous.
    I agree that camping is the perfect escape from the stresses of life and it is so important to reconnect with nature every once in a while.
    I think you have written some very actionable steps here, and love that you do advise people to prepare for the worst. You can never be too safe.

    This is such a great post – full of helpful tips that can help in planning a camping trip, especially for novice campers like me. I completely agree with you that one should share the itinerary with a known person – in fact, I do so, for all of our travels in general. Really informative and great tips regarding how to choose a tent as well as a sleeping bag. I think it’s a great idea to pack a tarp in addition to place over the tent when not sure if the tent is water-resistant or not. Pinning this post for future reference.

      Thanks, Aditi. I couldn’t agree with you more it’s always better to let someone know about your plans. Just in case.

    I couldn’t agree more with all what you’ve written here. All these camping tips are truly important and one has to keep them in mind when doing camping, especially in the lush forest. Choosing the right tent, having a light load and making sure that the camping site is safe are some of the best tips you’ve shared here. Personally, I also love hiking mountains and camp, so I truly appreciate this.
