You can camp with a tent in America. This is a good and inexpensive alternative to a tour with a camper or sleeping in hotels. A car consumes a lot less petrol than a camper and a pitch for a tent is often cheaper than a motorhome. You can also sometimes store your tent in the most unique places in nature. Al though wild camping is not allowed in America.
Take or rent a tent?
Most airlines allow one piece of baggage of 23 kg per person on trans-Atlantic flights. If you would like to bring your own camping gear, you can always book extra luggage. Look carefully in advance if this pays off: extra baggage can walk in the papers, because you can also rent camping gear in America. For example, in Phoenix or Albuquerque you can pick up the equipment at the store itself by Rent Your Tent USA (www.rentyourtentusa.com / closed on Sundays.) and in Denver at Out Doors Geek (www.rentehtent.com). Do you want to rent camping gear in a different place? Most rent a tent websites ship rental camping equipment anywhere, anytime!
Cooking & cooling
A gas bottle for your cooker or gas lamp, you obviously can not take this with you on the plane. Because camping gas is barely available in America, it is best to buy a simple cooker on the spot (+/- $ 60) and use disposable gas bottles. Because the extra baggage that you can book on the plane is limited, it may be a good idea to buy an ordinary or a disposable cool box on the spot ( walmart). These can be kept cool with bags of ice cubes or cooling elements, which are available almost everywhere.
How do I find campsites?
Not all American campsites have places for tents. Keep this in mind when looking for campsites or making reservations. Consult this camping database with camping addresses and reviews.
Which car do I choose?
Choose a car model with plenty of luggage space for your camping gear and bags or suitcases.
