Often an exciting added element to camping can be using an unimproved campsite. Many campgrounds offer amenities like fire pits, tent pads, electric and water, even bathrooms, but an unimproved campsite offers little-to-nothing. For beginners looking to expand their camping experience, learning to “rough it” in a basic campsite can be quite the adventure.
I actually read a helpful article that introduced me to the idea of unimproved campsite camping. It provides a brief overview of what it is and what beginners will need. I’ve added some of my own recommendations below.
