Primitive camping with a small group of friends or family can be a great way to spend some time away. Since this is camping in its purest form, primitive camping can be an excellent group activity. Everyone can work together to create the campsite since this style of camping is all about self-sufficiency. Whether you want to make a game out of who can catch the biggest fish or identifying the constellations in the sky, primitive camping is the perfect getaway for small groups looking to enjoy the beauty of nature.
What's included with a Primitive Campsite?
This primitive campsite accommodates up to 10 guests in a 520 sq. ft. area. The cost is $52 per night, which can be more affordable than a lot of other camping accommodations. With this location, you get beautiful views of the night’s sky for stargazing and the perfect spot for fishing. However, you don’t typically get some luxuries like you would at other sites when you go camping, such as running water or bathrooms. This only helps add to the adventure that primitive camping offers you. All you need to do is create the perfect campsite for your needs.
How should we prepare for a primitive camping experience?
Whenever you go primitive camping, it is important that you prepare for every scenario possible when packing while remembering you may have limited space. This can be a good reason to have a group, so that everyone in the group can carry something important. The most important things that you should have include some type of shelter and a quality, three-season sleeping bag. This shelter could be an RV, but you have to remember there are no hookups for your RV. Or you can use a tarp to create a lean-to type of shelter. You can also get a hammock or cot to sleep/relax on while you are camping.
What else should we bring when primitive camping?
It is also important that you have a large enough backpack to carry all of the essentials that you need. You will need a small first aid kit that has all of the important first aid needs in case you need it. You will need extra clothing in addition to the clothing you need, in case your clothing gets wet. A nice rain coat or fleece coat is also a great idea. This will keep you warm or dry, depending on what you need more during your trip.
Other items to bring include:
- Fleece hat/gloves
- Cooking supplies
- Something to start a fire with, wind-proof matches or a lighter will work best for you.
- Some type of light source, like a lantern or flashlight for when there is no fire
- Food supplies
