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.
