Five Safety Tips for Camping Around Colorado Springs

724 × 402

Summer isn’t over yet, so there’s still time to pack up your Toyota and head into the wilderness. Living in Colorado Springs, we are blessed with so many amazing places nearby, and we want to share some handy tips to make sure you have the best camping trip this summer.

 

1.     Select a safe campsite. Make sure you take a look at your surrounding before you set up. Dead trees and debris can fall at any time, so you want to ensure you are prepared. It would also be wise to check the weather in case it rains, so you know if you need to put items away when you’re out there.

 

2.     Pack lightly. To ensure a stress-free trip, try to pack as light as you can. Sometimes you have to hike to get to your destination, and having too much stuff can weigh you down and cause injuries. Keep in mind, whatever trash you take in, you’ll also have to carry out.

 

3.     Don’t drink stream or lake water. Even though the water may look clear enough to drink, it might be contaminated with water parasites and other microorganisms that can cause illnesses. Make sure you bring your own water or use the water that is provided at the campsite.

 

4.     Use the buddy system. Travel in groups as much as possible, and use the buddy system. In an unknown place, it’s better to be safe and know that everyone is accounted for.

 

5.     Bring sunscreen and bug spray. Keeping your skin safe from the sun and bugs is very important. No one wants to get sunburnt or bit by bugs while trying to enjoy their time off.

 

To make sure your camping trip is a success, you need the best vehicle for the trip as well. All Toyota SUVs are great choices since they provide plenty of space for camping gear and have excellent off-road features. If you’re in the market for a new SUV, stop by Larry H. Miller Liberty Toyota Colorado Springs, and we will help you find the perfect vehicle for all your summer adventures. See you soon!
