Important Things to Remember for a Wild Camping Trip


Wild camping is one of the best ways to truly enjoy nature and feel connected to the world around you. Going to sleep in the middle of nowhere with only the stars and moon around you and then waking up to the peace and joy of a quiet morning in nature is an unbeatable experience. But you do need to be well prepared for this, so here are some important things to remember. 

Do You Have Enough Water?

When you don’t have access to a tap, you’d be surprised how much water you end up using. Every time you want to wash your hands, clean your teeth, or cook something you will need water each time. And of course, having enough water to drink is essential, so it’s good to have plenty of water available. 

Do You Have a Good System for the Toilet?

It may not be nice to think about, but this is an undeniable aspect of wild camping that needs to be considered. Depending on where you are, just making use of the quiet, natural area is often best, but always ensure you leave the space as you found it and clean up carefully after yourself. 

Do You Have Enough Warm Clothes?

Wild camping often means you’ll be in an open landscape with nothing around you, so it can feel much colder during the night. Always bring warmer clothes than you think you’ll need, as the temperature drop in the night can be hard to deal with.
