COVID Camping: Everything You Need to Pitch a Tent This Strange Summer


We’re living in a movie. That’s pretty much the easiest way to explain this surreal “new normal” we’re currently stuck in. A pandemic has shut down most of modern life for months. Luckily, things are slowly starting to open up. And, if people continue to social distance and wear masks in public, we just might have some semblance of a normal summer. This means road trips, hiking, and even camping. Instead of a strange, plague-filled sci-fi movie, this summer might just be a fun, camping comedy instead.

If you live in a state that has already reopened campsites (or one that is opening soon), it’s time to book a site, plan your trip, and get out on the open road to explore America via tent or camper. Get out of your home quarantine. There are lakes to swim in, marshmallows to toast, and trails to hike!

But, since this summer is different from most, it’s important to do things a little differently than in past years. Lucky for you, we’re here to help. We made a list of the most important things you need to remember if you plan to camp this summer. Check them all out below.
