How to Plan a Camping Trip

While winter camping in Ohio is not for everyone, spring is right around the corner, bringing with it warm breezes and bright sunshine. This means that now is the perfect time to start planning an awesome trip camping in Ohio. Here are a few tips to help you arrange and prepare such a spring-time trip!

1. Who Are You Going With?

While you don’t really need anyone at all to go camping, some of the most fun trips are the ones we make with the people we’re closest to. Gauge your family’s interest in a camping trip, and if they’re all for it, sign them up. Ask your significant other as well if he or she is interested. A nice getaway into the woods can be the perfect romantic retreat. Don’t forget about your closest group of friends as well.

2. Find Your Campsite Online.

One of the best things about camping in Ohio is our parks! Our website can help you find the perfect campsite. This allows you to explore the different accommodations and  amenities that different parks offer. Choose a park whose settings and activities are right for your group.

3. Gather the Necessities.

It’s incredibly beneficial to just keep your camping stuff in storage tubs. This will prevent the hassle of getting things together in the future, and it keeps the current trip organized. Each person’s choice of supplies vary, but it’s generally a good idea to keep a big tub full of: tents, sleeping bags, sleeping pads, first aid kits, lanterns, flashlights, tarps, spare batteries, matches, wet wipes, bug spray, trash bags, and cooking supplies.

It doesn’t matter if you prefer tent camping, RV camping, or cabin camping in Ohio, just so long as you get out there and experience the wide, wonderful world that our beautiful country has to offer this spring.
