Tips for Being a Good Camping Neighbor

Why Camp Michigan

When you have neighbors, you want to make sure that you’re not getting too loud. It can be fun to laugh and carry on, but you need to keep in mind that others are close by and sound really carries at night. If you want to play music or do anything that makes a lot of noise, ask those in the area if it’s okay. Sometimes it can be fun for everyone to gather and meet each other. Other times, people are out there to get away from noise and just to relax. It depends on who you’re around what kind of activities make sense to do.

Being a good camping neighbor is really not that difficult to do. In fact, it’s kind of like having any other kind of neighbor. You’re just in somewhat closer quarters, and you have to be able to get along with those around you.

Are you going to be able to share anything that you have with you? Sometimes, people don’t come as prepared as they thought they were. You may end up being asked for this or that so don’t be afraid to bring a few extras to help others with. If you’ve brought enough to feed others, then make sure you ask around before you start cooking to see if anyone is interested. People don’t like to be surprised with something or they may be on a diet, you never know. Either way, you generally can get along with everyone around the area if you are polite and helpful.

A good camping neighbor is one that is able to be quiet, nice, and clean. If someone is having a problem in the area and you can help, then try working with them. All in all it’s fairly easy to be a nice neighbor to be around if you just try!
