The campsite is an important part of the camping or backpacking experience. A good campsite can contribute much to a great trip.. and a poor campsite will cause problems. It's helpful to know what to look for when choosing campsites so here are some campsite selection tips to help you on your way. Remember... good campsites are found, not made.
Campsites are definitely a special part of the camping experience. Proper trip planning is very important and can make or break your camping trips. Know the regulations of the area and plan your camps accordingly. Have a relaxed schedule when backpacking because you will not always get the campsites that you want. Have a backup plan and always have alternate established campsites to choose from. Proper planning will save you from having to settle for a campsite that is far from ideal. When we are prepared and are in a relaxed state we are less likely to leave a negative impact. When we are happy and enjoying a backpacking trip any good site can become our "perfect campsite".
