Tips For Safe Camping

How to ensure a safe and enjoyable camping trip

Millions of Americans like to experience the outdoors by camping. Occasional camping trips provide rest and relaxation as well as a chance for your family to spend some quality time together.

If this includes you and your family, always be sure to keep safety in mind. Here are a few camping safety tips:

  • Take along plenty of food and water in case you get stuck in a remote location for several days.
  • Water purification tablets will come in handy should you happen to run out of water.
  • Use only quality, well maintained camping supplies.
  • Keep a cell phone with a hot battery with you at all times, and try to camp in a location that has cell service. Walkie-talkies for everyone is also a great idea.
  • Have a first aid kit handy at all times. 
  • Don't place your tent or campsite in a dry ravine or too close to a stream. Flash floods can pop up without warning.
  • If you plan to camp in an area frequented by bears, keep all food items locked up in your automobile or camper and stored in airtight containers.
  • Never approach a bear or other wild animal or attempt to feed them.
  • Hike in groups of two or more, never by yourself.

Camping is a great way to enjoy the great outdoors and bond with your family, but keeping everyone safe should be your top priority.

A little common sense and planning will go a long way towards ensuring a safe and enjoyable camping trip for all.
