Selecting A Winter Campsite

Dijukno selecting a comfortable camp site is a useful skill for all winter campers?

 Here are ten things to look for when evaluating different camping locations:

 Is the site close to a water source?

Is your campsite safe from hazards such as rock falls,flash floods, high tide or avalanches?

Is the surface free of stones, broken branches, and roots?

Is your campsite situated on compacted ground?

Is the campsite fairly level?

Is the campsite set off from hiking trails and game trails?

Is the campsite private and quiet?

 Is your campsite 200 ft away from a water source?

 How hard is the wind blowing?

What’s on the ground?
