The Amazing Campsites
If you are new to the camping world or have no idea or you are confused to choose the best camping site then this blog is for you. There are two main types of camping namely camping at developed campgrounds and dispersed camping. We will discuss the pros and cons of both these types. Camping at developed campgrounds is the most common type because these camping grounds provide more facilities such as restrooms, picnic tables, bathing tents, fire pits, and all necessary items which are needed for camping. These facilities vary from one campground to other depending upon the circumstances but most commonly you will get at least fire pits and picnic tables.
- Facilities including fire pits, picnic tables, and bathing tents are some of the biggest advantages of campground camping.
- Campgrounds are easy to access because they have a very clear and paved path or road to reach the destination.
- The availability of fire pits and other cooking items makes it easy for the camp kitchen. You can easily cook food and have fun.
- Camping at campgrounds is always paid for. You have to pay the respective fee for camping at campgrounds which may vary from 5$ to 50$. And if you camp a lot the fee will add up quickly.
- Depending on campgrounds it common to see other campers very close to you. Campgrounds are mostly crowded areas because more than 4 or 5 camping parties camp on campgrounds at the same time.
Dispersed camping is when you camp away from developed facilities on public land. There is nothing like campground accessories including fire pits, picnic tables, or bathing tents. You will nothing more than a patch of land to have a suitable place for pitching your tent and a small fire rock to start up the fire. Public land is always open for everyone to camp without paying any fee or money. For dispersed camping is very important for you to research that you are going to camp on public land and not on private land owned by some farmers or state. You should also have a map or a GPS along with you when you are going to camp in a dispersed camping site.
Dispersed Camping Pros:
- Dispersed camping is always free to camp. You don’t have to pay any kind of camping fee for dispersed camping.
- Dispersed camping, not a crowded area. This site is always peaceful. You will not find other people camping very close to you as in campground camping sites.
Dispersed Camping Cons:
- Dispersed camping does not provide facilities like campground camping having fire pits, picnic tables, etc.
- Dispersed camping sites are always difficult to access because most of the time roads of national forests are rough and non-paved. In rain, they become more dangerous and muddy. So your vehicle must be fully prepared before starting your journey to reach dispersed camping sites.
No matter where you are camping, always check fire instructions and restrictions. Sometimes it is not safe to start a fire at the camping site. Just because there is a fire pit doesn’t mean it's safe to have a fire at that time.
