3 Tips to Camping in the Pacific Northwest

After a week full of work and stress, the weekend is here and it is the season to escape the crowds, score secret spots, discover more about the Pacific Northwest, and camp like royalty.

There are so many wonderful camping grounds in the region where you can choose from. The Pacific Northwest has so many swollen rivers and radiant landscapes with every shade of green imaginable – which is really a good spot for camping acivities. Outdoor activities are abundant in this area so I know this is the place for you.

I have prepared here some tips to know before you go:

  • Ready yourself, your things and gear up

Sort out what to bring depends on how much room you have, your method of transport, and the measure of time you’ll be outdoors. In the event that you’re climbing to the camping area, be careful with regards to the weight and greater part of what you’re conveying.

  • Dress accordingly

Cotton is great for staying cool in all other areas but it’s not your friend in the woods. Wear something appropriate for the camping activity and bring some extras that can keep the bod dry and sweat-free.

  • Always think of ryou safety

Safety is no joke, especially if camping in a remote area – where it is common for poor signal reception. In that case, you will need to be ready and bring your own safety kits. Always use  sunscreen, and wear a hat and sunglasses to keep the sun out. Drink plenty of water to avoid dehydration, too, especially when you still need to hike before you can set up your camp. Every camping group should bring along:

  • a well-stocked first-aid kit
  • creams for blisters
  • After-bite
  • Sunscreen
  • an EpiPen for any people in the group with severe allergies
  • any other personal medications and physical aids

Now, you are all set to be a happy camper this weekend! It is never not okay to be an extra – I also suggest bringing your camera to capture your happiest moment while spending the weekend in the woods.
