rediscovering the outdoors camping

North American Camping Life

The winter can be a rough season for many, but it’s almost over and spring is less than a month away. With spring comes a whole world of possibilities. Festivals, outdoor events and even rediscovering the most beautiful parts of nature are just around the corner. It’s an exciting time and the anticipation can be thrilling, but it can be difficult to plan a weekend getaway that can really undo the winter blues. 

There are such beautiful national parks across the continent, both in Canada and the United States. It can be tricky to figure out the most scenic, and which ones are accessible from March onwards. However, some interesting spots in the States include Assateague Island Campground, Maryland. This campground is right by the water, where you can enjoy a variety of watersports as well as have some close encounters with wild horses. Another spot is the scenic Arches National Park, Utah, where there are over 2,000 natural arches that will be the perfect backdrop to all of your Instagram photos. There are also 51 campgrounds, and mountain bike trails that you can explore. If you’re looking to take a trip in the summer rather than spring, then maybe check out Crater Lake National Park, Oregon. This is the state’s only national park, but the glittering lake will without a doubt be worth braving the crowds. 

In Canada, visiting Joffre Lakes Provincial Park, British Columbia is such an extraordinary experience. The truly stunning views as you drive up to your destination is half the fun, then you pull up and see the crystal clear waters of the lakes, each one more beautiful than the other. The Algonquin Provincial Park, Ontario is also worth a visit. You can enjoy safe, friendly interactions with wildlife, bird-watching, and hiking trails for every experience level. No list would be complete without mentioning Banff National Park, Alberta. Banff is arguably Canada’s worst kept secret, as visitors come from far and wide to enjoy the natural beauty of the Rocky Mountains. There may be a crowd out there, but it will definitely be worth it. 

The Nerdy Camping Essentials

To prepare for a camping trip, there are a few basics that you need. For instance, a tent, sleeping bags, some food, and water. There are some non-basics, that will quickly become absolute staples in your camping gear. Those include the Portable Water Filter, an incredibly light-weight handy tool, that can filter up to 3000 liters (660 gallons) of water. This gadget can lighten your load, which is great especially when your campgrounds are not accessible by car. Another innovation is the Mosquito Killer Trap. Being out and about in nature has its many benefits; however, having to deal with insects can be quite a drawback. With this gadget, you are able to mitigate the mosquito problem and keep them at bay without having to use bug spray, or candles, or a variety of other chemical solutions. The trap functions using lures that diverts mosquitos and other flying insects away from you, and it can be powered up using a USB cord so it stays up and running all through the night to guarantee you a peaceful sleep under the stars. One more item to put in your pack could be our Foldable Wifi Drone Camera. When venturing out to some of our continent’s and our world’s most beautiful sights, you want to remember exactly what you saw with the best possible clarity. The drone camera can do just that for you. Not only will it forever preserve your memories, but it can also provide you with a perspective of your surroundings that is only accessible from the air.
