Steps to the perfect camping retreat

A common misinterpretation amongst society is evident within the relationship between knowing absolutely everything related to outdoors and enjoying a camping trip; however, people fail to realize they don’t have to be complete outdoor junkies!

See, a TRUE camper enjoys the disconnection from their everyday tasks and lifestyle. They become glee over spending quality time with family or friends or even while alone and enjoy the beautiful scenery nature has to offer, yet a lot of times, people will feel ill prepared or hesitant to plan such an amazing excursion simply because of a misconception!

Thanks to Code.io, you’ll be able to receive tips and tricks on how the whole “process to go camping” works! Maybe you don’t know what to pack or what to wear or where to go or what tools to use...or maybe you’re here because you need more technical assistance...like more so for when you’re actually out exploring those woods or walking along that clear lake. Either way, we’ve got you covered!

Planning

Brainstorm the Activities

The activities dictate your trip!

  3. Spotting wildlife is usually easier
  1. Requires the purcharse of a parking permit
  2. Potable drinking sources are often limited (bring your own: 1 gallon a day per person is recommended)
  3. Public restrooms are limited
Campground Sites
