Know The Campground Rules
Some campgrounds will have unusual rules that you need to adhere to, so you’re going to want to make sure you check these things out ahead of time. For instance, you may only be able to have one car on the campsite, but paying an extra fee may be an option. Ensuring you are familiar with the rules beforehand will save you a lot of hassle and ensure you all have a great time.

Make The Most Of The Journey
Driving to the campsite is all part of the adventure, so make sure you have fun. When planning the ultimate camping trip with your friends carpooling is far more efficient and can be fun. You might want to have a physical map to ensure you don’t get lost, as depending on where you camp, you may not be able to get signal to access the maps on your phone. Make a playlist to accompany your trip, too!
Prepare For The Cold and Dark
It will get dark and it could get very cold at night time. Having flashlights and lanterns ensures you’re safe in the dark, and that you can continue socializing even once darkness falls. Make sure you have lots of clothing options and comfortable sleeping bags. You won’t be able to sleep if you get too cold. Taking really cosy blankets and hoodies, as well as socks, gloves, and other items will ensure you can stay out socializing even if the temperature does drop. You don’t want to get FOMO!
Check The Weather Beforehand
If the weekend is destined for rain, you will need to change what you pack to make sure you’re prepared. Having rain proof items just in case is a good idea, though. Don’t risk it, and make sure even your tents come with rain coverings. You’ll also want to reconsider any cooking plants that you made. On the other hand, if it’s going to be hot and sunny, take plenty of water and don’t forget your SPF! Sun stroke and burn will quickly ruin your trip and could even make you physically sick. You’ll be glad you went through the effort to check and plan for this if the weather takes an unexpected turn.
