Family Camping Tents Come In Various Sizes

One of the best ways to bring a family closer together is to go on a family camping trip. One of the most important things to think about is family camping tents. Tents can be as cheap or as expensive as you want. Depending on the size of the family, you can get family camping tents that will sleep up to 10 people. Manufacturers really aren’t counting on the tent containing both people and their gear. Generally a 10 person tent will actually sleep 6 to 8 people along with their gear.

If the family has both male and female members, you might want to get two tents, one for the guys and one for the gals. Another option is to bring two 6 person tents that will comfortably sleep 4 people each and a couple of 2 or 4 person tents to store the gear in. The best setup is to set your gear tents in-between the people tents. This is the best way to be able to keep an eye on the gear tents and to give the people a bit of noise privacy.

The camp fire should be a pit type fire that is dug 2 or 3 feet below ground level. The wood and other burnable fuel is set in the pit which helps to keep it less affected by winds. It also allows you to put some kind of grate over the fire that makes camp cooking easier. The fire pit should be lined all the way around with rocks to make the fire as safe as possible. You should also clear an area of 4 to 5 feet of leaves and other burnable material. Fire safety makes for a great camping experience.

If you expect any wet weather while on your camping trip, you will want to get tents that are highly water resistant. If you are pretty sure of a dry trip then you just want tents that are heavy enough to keep the winds out. There are a lot of fun things that can be done as a family when camping, depending on where you set up camp. If you are near a lake or river, both fishing and swimming is a good way to pass the time. A family hike through the woods is also fun, as singing camping songs in the evenings. With the right camping gear, you will have a great camping experience.
