If you are planning on not using a camper van then bringing a portable grill is an absolute must for your trip. Being able to cook your own food in the great outdoors is a beautiful experience and one that will keep everyone happy. You can bring plenty of luxurious foods to cook up on the grill and the aromas will fill the air. There is nothing better than the smell of bacon cooking while waking up in the great outdoors. What’s more, you can wash all this good food down with some fine wine. So whatever the occasion, make sure the food matches its special nature.
Going stargazing needs to be a priority on your list of activities for your camping trip. There is nothing more spectacular than watching the stars above you as you spend time with your loved ones. Make a proper night out of it and gather up all the pillows, blankets, and snacks you can find so that you can set up a cozy camp and enjoy your evening. If you want to take this even further, you could purchase an astronomy telescope or pair of binoculars to get the best view of the sky. Also, if you are not quite sure what you are looking at, then consider downloading a stargazing-based app such as SkyView, Star Walk, or Sky Safari. There are plenty to choose from and you will be able to tell your friends and families all about the constellations in the sky and what patterns to look out for.
Another great camping activity is to go for a nice walk to a spot that is perfect for a picnic. Pack blankets and all of your favorite foods and drinks. When you get to your special spot you can relax, eat strawberries, drink prosecco and bask in the sun (if the weather permits of course). A picnic is an inexpensive activity to do that can be very rewarding. If you have a family then you should consider packing some games or a frisbee for some light entertainment.
To set the mood you should bring portable lighting to hang around your camping spot. Once the sun sets you can turn your site into something that looks like it belongs in a fairy tale. You could consider using lanterns, fairy lights, or lighting in mason jars to bring your campsite to life. This sets an ambient atmosphere where everyone will want to cozy up with each other, sing songs, tell stories and roast those gourmet marshmallows by the fireplace.
Camping can be luxurious when done right, and if you use any one of these 7 tips then you will ensure a trip to remember. Happy camping!
