Knowing what kind of camping you want to do is essential to the success of this activity. Writing down what is non-negotiable for you will help you make the right choice between a tent or a trailer that you can rent for the duration of your stay. Caravan rentals are available at Camping Choisy and Camping Le Sablon. Do you prefer shady or sunny places? In the middle of the forest or near services? You can also think about activities that suit your family to determine your final choice.

Basic equipment to have
It is often said that too much is like not enough. I would tell you that when camping, it is important to have the minimum. And to check that all of your equipment is functional to avoid unpleasant surprises.
Here is a list of camper essentials: camping stove, inflatable mattress, mattress pump, sleeping bag, pillows, marshmallows, deck of cards, water bottles, running shoes, mosquito repellent, sunscreen, beach towels , cooler, reusable plastic dishes, tablecloth, toilet paper, soap, toothbrush, blue plastic tarp, in case of extreme rain.
The precautions to take (the “just in case”)
The small details will make your stay a successful experience. I myself have experienced unfortunate events while camping. In order to avoid the worst, I give you my best advice today:
Clean up your yard before settling in. The branches can be removed and reserved for the evening campfire.
In the event of a storm, do not pitch your tent under a tree. My parents had the misfortune to do this and a tree fell on us. Luckily our car was parked nearby. She saved our lives.
Meals to plan
When camping, eating is part of the fun. The highlights are often found when preparing meals. Try to mix up cold and hot meals and plan a special meal cooked for a particular family member each day. Above all, do not deprive yourself. Refreshing snacks are to be expected, especially for young children. The most important thing is to have drinking water close at hand: stay hydrated.
