Top 7 camping tips for summer 2018

We’re officially in the midst of festival season so camping is a hot topic right now! But don’t worry if you’re a camping novice, we’ve rounded up the best camping tips so your trip will be a little less intense and just in tents…

1. Space can be quite tight, Tic-Tac boxes are great for storing spices or other small items.

2. If you don’t have a blow-up mattress lilos make great camping beds.

3. Keep the kids entertained. Board games are your best friend.

22 Haven parks have touring and camping facilities, so check them out!

4. Have a trial run. If this is your first tent or it’s a new one, remember practice makes perfect.

5. Let there be light. Torches, headlights or home-made lights (see below) will always come in handy.

6. Bring lots of foil – you can cook pretty much anything in it!

7. Remember these foam mats from school? Well they’re pretty cheap and act as a comfortable floor to your tent!
