Life is what you make of it. That’s why it’s important to know what you’re hoping to achieve while camping. You can easily customize your trip that way. You’ll know exactly what you’re hoping to experience while away from home as well as the types of feelings you want to feel while spending time in nature.

Here are five ways to make the most out of every camping trip you take:

1.Make it comfortable.

Emphasize comfort by bringing that satin sleeping bag liner and extra fluffy pillow. You don’t need to ‘rough it’ to camp these days. You can have a truly personal experience without necessarily calling it ‘glamping’. The more comfortable you are, the happier you’ll be.

2.Make it fun.

Remember that your time away from home is yours to spend however you’d like to utilize it. If that means sleeping under the stars or waking to watch the sunrise, the choices you make are completely up to you. The more wonder you have, the more fun the entire experience will be.

3.Plan some the activities you’ll participate in.

That way, you have something to look forward to each day. It also helps pass the time if the weather isn’t cooperating. You’ll have some indoor activities to enjoy such as playing games or watching a movie you have downloaded to your tablet or phone.

4.Cook something you wouldn’t ordinarily eat at home.

Camp cuisine has come a long way in recent years. Explore different flavor profiles by being an adventurous eater. Cook something you wouldn’t eat at home and give your taste buds a delightful experience, too.

5.Meet up with family or friends.  

Camping provides the perfect atmosphere for socializing. If you haven’t had a chance to catch up with family or friends in a while, plan to camp together. It will strengthen your bond and give you plenty to talk about going forward.

The camping experience that you have is completely up to you. It can be immersive or relaxed. You can spend time in the Great Outdoors by yourself or with your entire family. The choice is completely up to you, and we respect that. Saco River Camping Area is accommodating so let us know what we can do to make your camping trip one you’ll remember for the rest of your life!
