Where you’ll be camping will influence your overall camping experience, especially in terms of comfort. Some important questions you have to ask are “Is your group comprised of experienced campers?” and “Do you have children or seniors with you?”

If not everyone is an experienced camper, choosing a private or public campground with amenities (bathroom, water, and electricity) is ideal.
