The “campsite selection” is a difficult task. There are many factors that go into making the decision of which campsite to choose. The most important factor is what kind of experience you want. If you want a peaceful and secluded setting, then you should pick a site with few people around.

Comic guide to pick a campsite.

Your campsite will be your home away from home while you’re out in the wilderness. Picking the ideal site for setting up camp is the first step in maximizing your comfort and happiness in your wilderness retreat. 

You normally don’t have to worry much about where to pitch up camp if you’re vehicle camping in a park with sites especially designated for this purpose. That has already been done for you by the park designers. You just park your car in the appropriate space and then set up your tent in the prescribed area.

If you’re camping in an area where the sites are more rustic or there are no designated areas (as is frequently the case while hiking), you’ll have to plan ahead of time where you’ll pitch up camp. Above is a graphic representation of things to look for while making your decision: Setting up camp on a flat area away from others and near a tree break will keep the setting quiet, comfortable, and calm; avoiding positioning your tent beneath tree branches will keep it from being crushed by a falling “widow maker”; and setting up camp at least 200 feet from a water source will give you easy access to it for drinking while keeping you far enough away to avoid contaminating it with your waste or having it flood into your campsite if it rains.

You’ll also want to avoid low regions in the ground, in addition to the elements shown in the figure. Because cold air lowers, water tends to concentrate in depressions, which are generally cooler. Also, stay away from locations that seem to be spotless. That flowery field may seem idyllic for pitching your tent, but after camping and stomping on it, the same beauty that caught your attention will be diminished. 

Finally, don’t put off choosing a campground for too long. It’s best to start setting up camp at least two hours before sundown, since it’s no fun pitching a tent and cooking supper in the dark, as I’ve learned the hard way. 

Have a great time camping!
