Selecting your ideal camping world locations can become a little bit of a headache, even for the most seasoned of campers! After all there is so much to consider. Living under canvas can offer you a home from home lifestyle, so what do you want from your holiday? Do you have something in mind that you want to do in the area? Or are you looking for a decent site, that will be home for you and your family for 14 nights with no hidden extras? Oh so much to think about, so let's break that down...
If you have a young family, you probably think this is easy answer. However as families grow and your children get their own lives, your view on holidays may differ. After all a once adoring child that loved to romp around in woodlands, may now look down their nose in utter disgust at the mere thought of breaking a finger nail! So you will need to consider whose coming on the holiday:
Quite clearly there are many variants to decide, and likewise there are many types of camping world locations to consider.
If it is your first time camping, you may be forgiven when looking at a campsite's brief for all the symbols that are there. Some can be quite self explanatory and others, well, they can leave you scratching your head! However whether you are looking on a website, in camping holiday book, or in a holiday brochure, there should be a key located somewhere to help you decipher what the site has to offer.
For those new to camping I would advise you to consider the following:
There are a lot of things to consider, and there is no right or wrong answer. At the end of the day any of today's camping world locations, will have one or more elements like the above list for you to consider. It is down to you to decide what is best.
One thing to add regarding the site amenities, is that you do get what you pay for.
If you do go to a camp site that is "all singing and dancing" with every amenity, you will pay the related cost in the cost per night charge.
If you elect a more quiet site, or even just a farmer's field with no facilities other than a water tap, that too would be reflected in the price that you pay.
My advice would be is work out how much you wish to spend on your camping holiday. Then how many nights that you want to be away. Working out your budget on a price per night, may well help you in choosing the best camping world locations possible.
Well on this one the world is your oyster! Canvas holidays are increasing in popularity, partly due to the fact that huge budgets are necessarily needed to make a wonderful holiday and partly due to the fact that camping offers so much freedom.
Given the increase in popularity, its now even possible to have no camping kit of your own, but instead fly to a location and it's all there for you! The only thing you may well need is to take some element of linen.
To choose the best camping world locations for our family, we decide on the 'bigger' things that we would like to do. So if for this year it would be to visit Sea World, then we would choose our destination around where Sea World is situated, and then find a site that matches our pocket. I am I suppose quite a practical camper in that way. However for us, our choice for the best camping world locations would have to have:
Ah yes, you can be caught out on some! So do make sure that you read all the small print of your ideal camping world locations, prior to booking. Things are typically some of the things that I would look out for:
These are the most common ones that I have found when searching for the best camping world locations - there of course may well be others out there; if you do know of any please let me know, and I'll add it to the list!
