Many non-campers hold irrational fears that tent camping is an uncomfortable and even dangerous activity. But author Frazier Douglass knows from experience that living in a public campground several days or weeks can be a very safe and comfortable experience. In Basic Tent Camping, Douglass offers a host of information about this popular recreational activity. Major topics include: • detailed information about tents, sleeping bags, ropes, hatchets, lights, ice chests, kitchen gear, and other items; • compressible, fast-drying garments that can be worn separately in hot weather and layered to provide warmth in cool weather; • how to perform variety of camping tasks such as setting up kitchen tarps that provide shade and storm protection, hanging hammocks, and battening down before bedtime; • dozens of simple, but delicious meal suggestions that can be easily prepared on a campfire or small camp stove; • how to plan basic tent camping trips to popular state and federal campgrounds during the peak summer camping season; • information about the history of tent camping and current ethical guidelines; • misconceptions and controversies related to basic tent camping; and • how to care for each piece of camping equipment to extend its lifetime. A valuable resource for both novice and veteran campers, Basic Tent Camping details a fresh approach to basic tent camping that emphasizes comfort and convenience.

Cliff sets his goals to increase the skill level of the general camping public. Of course, a thorough explanation of gear is concisely included for campers interested in procuring equipment. Fire starting procedures and camp cooking are discussed in detail. Finding a lack of basic skills in camps everywhere, Cliff devotes a chapter to "ropesmanship". Map and compass skills are another area effectively covered in this book.

The study reported in this document, designed to identify ecotourism opportunities desired by visitors and potential visitors to northern Ontario, was conducted using two surveys. The first focused on summer travellers, visitors to the area, and residents. The second survey (a mail survey) focused on people with an interest in outdoor recreation as indicated by their membership in recreational organizations. Principal components analysis was used to identify different market segments among respondents. The objective of this segmentation was to divide a relatively heterogeneous group of actual and potential ecotourists into more homogeneous groups having similar product and service needs. Segments were identified that show potential demand for ecotourism in northern Ontario, thereby allowing operators and marketers in the tourism industry to identify specific target markets and develop product and service packages that best suit each segment.

Best Tent Camping Colorado

Which campgrounds do you choose? Where should you go? When should you go? That's what this book is for--to help you make the wisest use of your time in the wilds of the Centennial State.

The Colorado landscape is rich with opportunities for tent camping. Millions of acres of public lands are dotted with hundreds of campgrounds--but you probably only have a precious amount of limited time. Which campgrounds do you choose? Where should you go? When should you go? That's what this book is for--to help you make the wisest use of your time in the wilds of the Centennial State. In the mountains of Colorado, the Rockies, camping is primarily a summertime activity. When the snow melts and the rivers run high--that's when tent campers start longing for the crisp mornings, crystal-clear days, and cool nights by the campfire that are part of a Rocky Mountain camp out. Not to mention wilderness hiking, trout fishing, mountain biking, and whitewater boating. In other parts of Colorado, the tent camping season is extended. You can pitch your tent year-round in the canyon country of the Western Slope, along the prairie lakes of the east, and in some of the lower elevation state parks. No matter where you go or when you go, the scenic beauty of Colorado will never fail to please the eye. Before embarking on a trip, take some time to prepare. Many of the best tent campgrounds are at the far end of a gravel road. This isolation--part of their attraction for many campers--makes for a long supply or gear run if you are unprepared. Call ahead and ask for a park map, brochure, or other information to help you plan your trip. Make reservations wherever applicable, especially at popular state parks. Ask questions. Ask more questions. The more questions you ask, the fewer surprises you'll get. There are other times, however, when you'll grab your gear and this book, hop in the car, and just wing it. This can be an adventure in its own right. Each campground has been rated on six criteria: beauty, privacy, spaciousness, quiet, security and cleanliness. In addition, campground profiles include vital statistics about each location (fees, restrictions, operating season, amenities, contact information, driving directions and reservation information, to name a few) that help campers plan the perfect trip without unwanted surprises. GPS users will also appreciate that each campground's precise latitude and longitude waypoints are included. Tent campers will also enjoy a detailed map of each campground included in the site profile. Making reservations online or blindly over the phone can put a camper miles from the restroom, stranded with no shade, or in the middle of a busy campground trail. Maps will help campers avoid those pitfalls, and wherever possible the author has even recommended specific campsites for maximum privacy, spaciousness, or beauty. Although there's never a shortage for things to do in Colorado's outdoors, campground summaries in the book also suggest attractions and activities near each campground. Fishing, hiking, biking, paddling, and scenic drives in the immediate area are recommended to ensure that campers know the basic lay of the land and have a jumping-off point to plan their trip. Whether it's a large family looking to get away for the weekend, a scout troop that wants to try something new, or a serious outdoors enthusiast searching for a place to adventure for the day and crash for the night, Best Tent Camping: Colorado has done all the work in finding those special, out-of-the-way campgrounds, and gives campers the tools to plan an amazing, unforgettable camping trip.

The Best in Tent Camping: Utah is a tent camper's dream. From over 400 campgrounds statewide, the author has culled the 50 best places to pitch your tent and steer clear of those frantic and bustling campgrounds full of RVs, concrete slabs, and loud portable stereos. Most of the campgrounds included keep the tent camper in their element: away from the biggest crowds and in those quieter, special campgrounds that only the locals seem to know about. Each highlighted campground was carefully selected for its friendliness to the tent-camper as well as for what it offers campers in the surrounding area.Campgrounds included put the car camper in some of Utah's best and most beautiful backcountry; from the colorful sandstone canyons of southern Utah, to the thick woods of the Wasatch Mountains in the north. National parks, state parks, a desert reserve, and even an island host some of the fifty featured campgrounds. Each campground has been rated on six criteria: beauty, privacy, spaciousness, quiet, security and cleanliness. In addition, campground profiles include vital statistics about each location (fees, restrictions, operating season, amenities, contact information, driving directions and reservation information, to name a few) that help campers plan the perfect trip without unwanted surprises. GPS (Global Positioning Satellite) users will also appreciate that each campground's precise latitude and longitude waypoints are included. Tent campers will also enjoy a detailed map of each campground included in the site profile. Making reservations online or blindly over the phone can put a camper miles from the restroom, stranded with no shade, or in the middle of a busy campground trail. Maps will help campers avoid those pitfalls, and wherever possible the author has even recommended specific campsites for maximum privacy, spaciousness, or beauty. Although there's never a shortage for things to do in Utah's outdoors, campground summaries in the book also suggest attractions and activities near each campground. Fishing, hiking, biking, paddling, and scenic drives in the immediate area are recommended to ensure that campers know the basic lay of the land and have a jumping-off point to plan their trip.
