You will have a more relaxed and enjoyable camping vacation if you are well organized. A sound camping equipment check will help you do just that. Whether you are going for a week end or a fortnight you also want to check where the campsites are at the location you want to go. It is a good idea to call ahead and make sure that there will be a space for you. This is especially important if the period includes a national holiday. Make sure that you have some knowledge of the area in which you’ll be staying before you decide to stay there. If you plan on taking the family dog check whether that’s allowed at the camping site. If it isn’t then you may need to find a kennel.
