Looking for a place to pitch your tent this fall? Well campers, grab your bags, get them packed, and get ready to set out on your next adventure on Lake LBJ! But before you head out, read these few tips we’ve compiled to ensure that you have a fantastic (and safe!) camping experience! Before you go, you should know:

Before Pitching Your Tent… a tarp underneath it! The tarp will help protect you and your tent from moisture and morning dew. And don’t forget to keep your tent zipped up and secure during the day to keep insects (and raccoons and other wildlife!) out!

Dry Out Your Sleeping Bag

During the day, hang your sleeping bag out to dry. Your sleeping bag absorbs moisture from your body while you sleep, and this moisture can reduce your sleeping bag’s insulation! Help it last longer by effectively drying it out.

Keep Clothing Organized

Have everyone in the group pack a separate duffel bag for their personal items, and keep it as organized as possible; with all the fun you’ll be having this may be difficult! Also, bring along a trash bag to put your dirty laundry into. When you get home, that’ll make the cleanup process so much easier.

Bring Along the Camera

We’re certain you’ll have so much fun out on Lake LBJ this season, we want you to remember the good times! So don’t forget to pack your camera and capture as many moments as you can.

This fall, we hope you have a wonderful time out on Lake LBJ. But above all, remember your safety guidelines (stay with a partner at all times to prevent getting lost, bring plenty of food, water, and first aid supplies, etc). Have fun, and be safe!
