How to Pick a Picnic Site

How to Pick a Picnic Site

After watching all those wildlife movies, there is always that feeling of wanting to go live in the wild. Luckily, you don’t have to go live in the savanna to experience the wild outdoors. For most people, a Sunday picnic or weekend away camping is a better option. It will take you to the wilds without necessarily having to fend off nature for months. After deciding to go camping, where will choose as your site? There are several considerations to be made to make your trip comfortable.


There are numerous camping grounds for your choice. It will depend on what kind of terrain you want to go camping on, but there is always a campground for any terrain. There is the land management agency which can also provide information on permits required, regulations and any campgrounds around. It is always prudent to clear these issues to avoid the embarrassment of your camp being shutdown just because you did not observe some regulations. If there are no campgrounds, then you have to go looking for a camping site.


What is the best site to set up your camp? Look for gently elevated ground so as to avoid the possibility of waking up in a flood in the event of rain. The grounds should ideally on high grounds well clear off any waterways even if they are dry streams. While avoiding waterways, it is advisable to camp near a source of water as you will need it for washing and drinking. Otherwise you will be forced to carry water for long distances which kills the fun.


Camping is not complete if you carry ready to eat food. Pick out a space you can cook from. A flat space near the camp free off dry leaves and twigs is ideal. You then have to pick out the area for dumping. It is prudent to observe low impact camping.


Finally, put up your shelter if it is one or two people a small tent is suitable. For only a one day event, which many will attend, choose suitable Marquees or party tents to hold more people. Ensure that they are well supported in windy areas. After setting up your tents, it is time to go out and enjoy the outdoors.
