A Beginners Guide to Camping Close to Home

Jeremy's Tips

  1. Camping close to home allows you to check out all the systems on a new RV.
  2. Slow down and enjoy the great outdoors. Take your fishing poles and other equipment you don't get to enjoy on trips where you are exploring.
  3. Set up the perfect campsite.
  4. Build the perfect campfire.
  5. Take the opportunity to test out any new camping gear.
