Taking a vacation can be a costly proposition. If that’s not in your budget this year, consider going camping instead.
It can be a great way to spend a frugal summer vacation, particularly if you already have the equipment you need.
BEST CAMPING EQUIPMENT
You check your gear, make sure nothing has gotten damaged since the last camping trip and you’re good to go.
FIND THE PERFECT CAMPSITES
Do your research and find a site you’ll be happy with. Head out and take a look ahead of booking if you can.
CAMP MENU & RECIPES
Bring what you can from home, shopping at your favorite frugal stores. Dry goods are easy to store in the car, and you can always pack a cooler for everything else.
It helps to have a few fun games on hand for any down times or rain days. Bring your favorite board games and a deck of cards.
