5 Tips For Responsible RV Camping

We all love a good RV camping trip. What's not to love? You get to experience the great outdoors, cook your meals over an open fire, and sleep under the stars. However, with RV camping comes great responsibility. Here are 5 tips for responsible RV camping to make sure you have the best—and most responsible—trip possible. 

1. Be aware of your surroundings.

When you're RV camping, you're in nature. That means you need to be aware of your surroundings at all times and be respectful of the wildlife and plant life around you. Make sure you know what kind of animals are in the area and how to properly deal with them if you encounter them. Also, be mindful of where you pitch your RV so as not to damage any delicate ecosystems. Try not to leave food out, as it can attract insects and local wildlife, sometimes even dangerous animals! Not to mention, human food is usually pretty unhealthy for wild animals.

2. Leave no trace.

Often stated by the Boy Scouts of America, this mantra applies to any camper and should be repeated over and over again in your head when you're RV camping. Leave no trace means just that—when you leave an area, it should look exactly as it did when you got there. That means packing out all your trash, being careful with fires, and sticking to established trails whenever possible.

3. Be prepared before you go.

One of the worst things that can happen when you're RV camping is being caught off guard by something unexpected. That's why it's so important to be prepared before you even leave for your trip. Make sure you have a comprehensive list of everything you need and double-check that list before packing up your RV. Additionally, it's always a good idea to research the area you'll be staying in so you know what to expect and can plan accordingly.

4. Don't panic.

If something goes wrong, don't panic! Again, being prepared is key when it comes to RV camping. So if something does go wrong—say a tire blows out or the weather takes a turn for the worse—don't panic! Stay calm and think through the problem logically so you can find a solution quickly and efficiently.

5. Have fun!

This seems like an obvious one but it's worth repeating because it's easy to forget when things start going wrong on an RV trip (see tip #4). No matter what happens, remember that you're on vacation! Relax, take some deep breaths, and enjoy yourself knowing that you're prepared for anything that comes your way . . . within reason, of course!

RV Camping is one of the best ways to experience everything nature has to offer but it's important to do so responsibly so we can preserve our planet for future generations of campers! Do your part by following these 5 tips for responsible RV camping next time you hit the road!
