Most of us tend to shy away from the idea of camping until the summer months, but for the brave, the benefits of going camping in Spring are there for the taking. Here I round up 5 reasons to pack up your tent and go camping in Spring!
Camping in summer is all very well but it feels like the whole world and their dog is doing it. The beauty of going camping in Spring which is the slower season is that there are fewer people going camping too! In Spring time, the atmosphere can be a little bit more laid back with enough people there to give the campsite the right vibe, but not so many people there that you’re practically camping on top of one another!
Spring can be an incredible time to go camping thanks to mother nature – everything is at its freshest and most beautiful before things have become frazzled by the sun,. Think aromatic forests and carpets of wild flowers. Eurocamp has an amazing array of camping holidays in some incredible locations – just think of what camping in the Alps in Spring would be like! Cue me running through an alpine meadow surrounded by butterflies. That is, unless it is during the night time toilet run where I’ll be relying on my head lamp!
It costs less
Because you’re not camping during peak period, obviously you won’t be paying peak prices either. Obviously, if you’re on a budget then this cost saving is a no brainer. Bring on the discounts!
Yes, in an ideal world camping in summer sounds lovely, and in Britain yes it will be…but if you’re heading over to the continent where temperatures can reach dizzying heights then that can mean one thing and one things only – a sweatfest. One thing you won’t be missing is the sticky feeling of being in a tent in summer time.
Less creepy crawlies
Going camping in Spring means you’ll be going before the creepy crawly and bug season really comes into effect, and that can only be a good thing right? Just imagine…a camping holiday with no mosquitos….hurrah!
