Savings Tips for Camping


When summer comes around, one popular activity is camping. Camping can happen in many forms, but it can also be expensive. Even though camping can get costly, below are a few tips and tricks to save money on your camping trip.

  • Borrow or rent your camping equipment – Gear and equipment can be very expensive. Borrow equipment from a friend or rent from a shop to save some money. Also, you will not have to find room to store it after your trip!
  • Skip bottled water & other disposables – Many campers still buy bottled water cases for their camping trips. Instead, buy a reusable pitcher that filters water for unlimited water refills, and be sure to take reusable bottles.
  • Stay for free by volunteering – Some campgrounds offer a complimentary stay in exchange for volunteer work. Volunteer positions could range from custodial work to giving tours to maintenance tasks!

There are many other ways to save money, and you can check them out in this Budget Travel article!
