Question: Good beaches to go tent camping in San Diego?
My boyfriend and I are planning to drive to SD from phx to go tent camping on a beach for a weekend. I have tried to look up beaches in San Diego to camp but so many around LA pop up and that is too far a drive for us. I would seriously love any recommendations of camp sites that have an ocean view-not a bay- from anyone to make my search easier! Thanks!
Answer by chris w
The drive from phx to la is shorter than you think, Google map your route, however forget camping at so cal beaches this year as all are reservations only and were booked up completely 6 months ago. To try and get reservations go to these two web sites,
Check it out: www.vminnovations.com – Durable 450mm polyester tent body is great for getting out in the warm or cool weather, and is coated to help repel water – Two pole assembly with shock-corded fiberglass poles make setup, take down and storage quick and easy. – Open mesh roof area provides excellent cross ventilation throughout and allows the tent to double as a more open room during the day or night.
www.bbhc.org Here are a few tips you should know to stay safe while hiking in grizzly bear country. This video offers very useful knowledge on the best ways to avoid conflicts with grizzly bears, and how to deal with a grizzly if you do come into conflict with one (including how use bear spray). Some of the best ways to avoid grizzly bear conflicts all together is to hike in groups of 2 or more and to make loud noises as you hike, so as to let any bears in the area know that you are there. In the most-likely experience you’ll have with a grizzly the bear will see you and run away. If the bear doesn’t run away but expresses interest in you, it may charge you, but a lot of charges are bluff charges (the bear is just trying to scare you away). Find out more about when and how to use bear spray in the video. The Buffalo Bill Historical Center is happy to welcome you to the Greater Yellowstone Area and hopes you have a safe and fun trip!

Question: What are the major accessories I will need for camping besides a tent and Air Mattress?
I am a first time camper, yea I know it is sad but I have just purchased my coleman tent and air mattress and I was just wondering what other esential camping accessories I will need? Also, any camping tips would be most helpful! Thanks
Answer by ethos
collapsible water container
small folding table
compact BBQ grill
pots/pans/utensils (you’d be surprised how many 1st-timers forget these)
For my money, these are the essentials I would never camp without. I like propane because it’s clean, interchangeable and readily available. The tarps are to put on the ground under your tent, and if necessary over it too. If you can stay dry during an all-day downpour, you will be a happy camper. I use two coolers, one for food, one for beverages, and never the twain shall meet. One block of ice will keep a cooler of food cold for the better part of a week if not longer, because you only open it three or four times a day.
Here are some optionals that I always take:
flip-top clear plastic storage crates (for food, kitchen utensils and everything else)
thin nylon line (lashing tarps, clotheslines, a million other things)
gallon ziploc bags
tall kitchen garbage bags
roll of paper towels
multi-spice dispenser (one container has all your seasonings)
cheap coarse vinyl floor mat (put one of these outside the tent and keep most grit out)
This may seem like a lot of stuff, but most of it should all fit into three plastic crates. Easy to pack, access and stay organized. Get the crates at LowesDepot or Walmart.
Question: I am new to tent camping and need help. How do you use an electrical hookup in a campground?
I am going to camp in a Yogi Bear campground in a site that says “Water and Electrical Hookup”. Does that mean I can use an extension cord with a strip on the end of it that has plugs in it?
I can find lots of info on tent camping on the internet, but nothing that explains electrical hookup. I’m a single mom. I hope I can find a veteran camper who can help me with my camping questions.
Answer by M G
Hello-I can help. I have camped since I was in diapers and am now, over 30 and holding-lol.Can you explain what you mean by “with a strip on the end”? Are you talking about just an extension cord? If so, you can plug an extension cord into the outlet. If you are still unsure-ask when you get there.
Question: How much does tent camping cost at campsites?
I want to go to Ft. Davis, Texas to see stars at some point in the future. But I don’t know if camping would be cheaper than getting a hotel. Or if you can see the stars are different camp sites or what.
But the point is, I’ve never gone camping. So how much do campsites generally cost?
Answer by Craig
This depends on where you’re staying. Rural campgrounds on BLM land can be free to a few dollars…state parks cost anywhere from $ 5 to $ 25…it’s usually less expensive to show-up and pay, especially this time of year. There’s a site online that sells state park camp site spots nationwide and they have a monopoly on state park camp lands, I’m not going to mention their name because they are a total rip-off, they can charge “surcharges” that are more than the cost of the campsite! Check-out this map of places to camp near Ft. Davis, many are hike-in but camping there can be free:
Question: Where can I go tent camping in Minnesota withouth bothering with the State Parks and/or reserved camp grounds?
Any ideas? A couple friends and I would like to go camping no further than 3-4 hours away from the Twin Cities without bothering with State Park nonsense, etc… Is this possible? Any stories good or bad? We’re planning on next weekend (2nd wknd October) and we’ll be bringing everything we need, and are prepared to rough it in a beautiful setting. Thanks ahead of time!

Have never camped in Minnesota but check into “dispersed camping” in their state forests.
