My Perfect CampsiteWritten by Chuck Fitzgerald
Itís time of year to beat heat and head for higher elevation. For many people that means loading up RV, grabbing boat and finding a campground by lake. My idea for perfect getaway means loading truck with our camping gear and our two Labrador Retrievers and getting as far away from pavement as we can get. While these two styles are quite different, they are both perfect. Letís take a look at what makes a campsite perfect for meóand perhaps for you.
To start with, there are two general types of campsites, first being established campsites. These campgrounds exist for all sorts of campers and their camping equipment ranging from large motor homes to small designated patches of grass for bicyclists. Finding this type of campsite is fairly easy to do. On internet, one can find hundreds of informational websites with campground information for virtually any area on planet. Favorite campgrounds are typically found in national, state and county park systems and are available for a nominal daily fee. They are usually found near natural features such as lakes, rivers and scenic areas. Campgrounds often cater to specific types of campers, for instance some campgrounds are kid and pet friendly while others are not. There are many advantages to established campgrounds such as running water, electricity, activities and other modern conveniences. With minimal research, you should be able to find perfect campground for you or your group.
A second general type of campsite is referred to as a primitive campsite. As name implies, you wonít find any of todayís modern conveniences at a primitive site and to those who prefer this type of camping, thatís whole point. Primitive camping is my favorite way to camp. Some primitive campers carry everything on their backs and set up camp when they are done hiking for day. I like to drive right up to my primitive camp site so that I can take along a few of my favorite things. In either case here are few things I consider when looking for perfect primitive site. Number one is shelter. Shelter from wind, rain, sun, noise and other campers are important to me. I also want a spot that is elevated, level, durable and clean. I donít care much for insects and I enjoy a nice fire in evenings.
