Campsites near Tokyo Japan Karuizawa Sweet Glass

By Venese Lau

If you love camping and want to explore the camping scene, you might be surprised by all the wonderful places Japan has to offer. Most campsites are available throughout the year (yes, even in the freezing winters!). However, I’d recommend camping during the warmer seasons, between the months of March and September. Just avoid the few weeks of rain in June, and the typhoon period in late August, early September.

There are many different campsites in Japan, in places such as parks, read more

Camping in Cooler Climates

Camping in cooler climates

By Lisa Bohler

Camping often includes warm, summer weather. In many parts of the country, though, cool temps are common most months out of the year. And in higher elevations of the Rockies, or in the Northwoods, it isn’t uncommon to have lows dip into the 40s or even the higher 30s all summer long.

At the time of my first solo camping trip, I did a lot of research of my location, what I was going to take, how I was going to set up camp, etc. I had intended to stay two nights, but I ended up only staying one night due to a variety of factors.

Review of the Outbright Camping Lantern

By Jessica Shouse

When I took my new Outbright Camping Lantern on my last camping trip I fell in love! This super-compact lantern is the perfect light for your next backpacking, family camping or boating trip.

Once my fire was going, I grabbed my favorite book and kicked back in my favorite camp chair. Again, perfect read more

By Patti Johnson

The first time I left the comfort of my coastal home for a solo overnight excursion in the wilds was because I wanted to “play hokey”, I needed to throw my To-Do list into the wind, to experience the thrill of the unknown and taste the elixir of the explorer. Deep down I also knew some serious immersion in nature would do my body some good. But the backroads and tangled forests of the Klamath Mountains were strange and scary to me.
