So, if you are done googling pictures and ready to hit the open road towards Vermont, here are quick tips to get you ready to have a great camping adventure:

You Will Need More Than a Tent

In order to avoid cramped quarters that will result in some serious sibling squabbles (say that five times fast), consider upgrading your family to an RV for your road trip. You can have the comfort of space without losing the authenticity and pleasures of camping. Not to mention the extra space you will have to securely store all the supplies you will need, rather than cramming them into the car with your family.

Your sanity will also remain intact. Furthermore, Vermont proudly boasts some amazing RV Parks near Lake Champlain and those famous Green Mountains. You will want to bring along fishing poles, hiking boots, and of course, your camera.

Before going on a road trip to Vermont, you will need to plan, prepare, and pack for the adventure ahead. Whether you are hauling a family or just yourself and a furry companion, you will need to make sure you have all the essentials to comfortably (and safely) enjoy your trip.

Pack smart and take along the essentials for both health and happiness. Clothes and first-aid kits are a must, but pack for utility instead of bringing an outfit for every occasion. It might take a few days to run through the checklist, and you might even forget one or two things, but having more than just the basics will be important to avoid spending time and money buying the things you left behind.

It is also important to keep in mind that while summer in Vermont is pretty mild, usually around 80 degrees, it can surprise adventurers with a sudden heat wave or rainstorm. It is always a good idea to pack one set of clothes for cold, hot, and wet, because who can really trust the weather report?

Scout a Route

To avoid getting lost or miss out on some of the best sites, it will be worth your time planning out a route to take before hitting the road. Furthermore, planning out where you will set up camp is important to ensure you will hit all the worthwhile spots.
