GENERAL CAMPING TIPS

-- Bring a flashlight; campsites aren't that well lit at night.

-- Make sure that your tent is waterproof, and bring rain gear. There will be rain.

-- Bring bug spray.

-- Bring a clothesline. It will save you the four euros (about $5) you'd have to pay for a dryer.

-- Invest in a comfortable camping mat; your bones will thank you the next day.

-- In the summer months, a sleeping bag may not be necessary, but a sleep sack is a nice extra layer.

-- When choosing your camping location, consider not only the distance from the center of town but also the ease and frequency of public transportation to and from the site.

Tripadvisor.com is a good resource for campsite reviews.
