There is no such thing as a typical camper...

Some do it to save cash, whereas others actually like the experience of waking up in nature. Which type of camper are you?


Butt in chair, drink in hand… If there is a hammock, this camper will find it! For you, camping is all about recharging your batteries and enjoying a much-needed escape from the stresses of life. A small campsite, surrounded by the peace and quiet of nature is just what you need for a perfect camping trip.


You don’t go camping to sit around the campsite; you go to get active – bypassing the campsite to head straight to the hills.

Tip: Find a site that offers a variety of activities; some offer hiking, biking, rock climbing, swimming and fishing.

You may be sleeping in a tent, but that doesn’t mean you have to abandon your sense of style. You like being in nature, but the luxuries of home have to come with you. The glam camper somehow manages to look like they’ve just stepped out of a salon.

Tip: As a glamper, you should look for options that offers electrical hookups, free Wi-Fi, and plenty of space to make yourself at home.

You don’t need much to make your camping weekend a success. Find a campsite that’s tucked into the wilderness, offering just enough amenities to get by for the weekend.

But then, not all camping requires a tent. The best sleeping-out experience can be had on the beach. Get a good forecast, find a secluded beach and someone to share it with, and then watch the sun slip below the horizon as you sit by a driftwood fire.


Minimalistic rusticWhat nature? Nature is just the back drop for the fun! It’s great to be in nature, but for you, camping is a party and hanging out with your friends.

Tip: Choose a site that’s either remote, or doesn’t have quiet hours, so you can party with your friends into the night.

Until next time, I’ll see ya by the campfire.
