Camping is an overall amazing experience but someone's experience can be ruined due to etiquettes that are not known. To avoid this, here are some camping etiquettes to consider that can serve as a reminder to treat others the way you want to be treated. Let's continue to keep camping a fun and amazing experience for everyone!
Each campsite will have an area reserved for your party/group and for others. Once an area is reserved, the entire area is now a part of their boundary. Respect everyone's boundaries and property by avoiding to go through their campsite without their permission. If everyone followed this respectful courtesy, you will feel more at ease knowing your belongings are not going to be taken.
If you forgot to pack something on your trip (completely understandable and common) and you want to ask your neighbors to borrow something, or if you want to check out your neighbors camper, or anything that will require you to enter your neighbors property, be sure to ask for permission. Avoid walking into their campsite without their permission and begin touching or looking at their items in their area.
Although camping is a great experience with your friends and family gathered around, be mindful of your noises. If you want to play music, be sure it's not too loud where your neighbors will hear while they're resting. Notate when quiet hours are (each campsite will have different hours).
Camping is a great experience for your pets a well. What a great way to take them to experience the beautiful outdoor nature. If you do plan to bring your pets, be sure to pick up after them. You wouldn't want someone's pet's leaving a present near your area. Also make sure they're always staying within your area. Some people may have a fear of pets and the last thing you would want is your neighbor having a scare with your unattended pet in their area. Keep them on leashes for the safety of others and don't leave them unattended.
Just as you entered your reserved area, be sure to maintain and keep your area clean around you. Put your trash in the trash cans, recycle, and don't leave a mess. Help keep the beautiful nature and campsite clean for you and others to enjoy by keeping your surroundings clean. This will ensure a great and safe experience for everyone to come!
