Something about escaping the city and getting out into the wilderness to go camping is positively rejuvenating. Sleeping under those twinkling stars or roasting s’mores over a crackling fire creates a relaxing outdoor getaway.
For those that enjoy tent camping, did you know that there are so many wonderful benefits to sleeping outdoors? With perks of discounted lodging options along with rewarding health benefits tent camping definitely is worth the adventure!
Travel is exciting, no doubt about that, but for some the expense of lodging can be quite burdensome. Most overnight accommodations for hotels or inns start at $60 a night for budget rates with some places upwards of $250 per night. Besides the cost you never know who had been sleeping in the bed before you or how well the room had been cleaned prior to your visit! Kinda gross if you really think about!
Staying at a campground can cut those rates down dramatically in price! Most places available for tent camping are less than $30.00 per night. Some are even free! Check out different places before making a reservation, read reviews and talk to people you may know who have recently visited the area.
Private campgrounds and state parks are very good resources that can offer this type of lodging. Most will also have restroom facilities and showers. If you are searching for a pool or electricity during your visit be sure to look for those amenities.
State land and forests can offer the most affordable camping options. Verify if you need any permits before venturing into the woods. Camping is usually the most affordable in these locations but you lose amenities such as restrooms with running water, showers and electricity.
Being out of the woods can reduce stress. If you are on vacation, let go of your worries and problems and enjoy the moment and place you are experiencing. Out of the hustle and bustle of the big city you can eliminate that hurried lifestyle feeling. By relieving stress, you will feel better!
Fresh air and sunshine are more wonderful benefits of camping. Take deep breaths as you fill your body with clean air from the wilderness. Sunshine offers its own benefits of Vitamin D, but apply sunscreen as needed.
Not only are you sleeping outdoors, you are being more energetic. It is not always easy to set up a tent. Maybe you picked a site that you have to hike to before setting up camp.
So next time you decide to embrace the beauty of nature or look for more affordable lodging options by spending some time out in the woods, consider tent camping.
