Not every open space is suitable for setting up camp. Below, we’ve outlined some characteristics to look for when you’re selecting a campsite.
Level: The perfect spot for your advertising dome tent will be relatively flat and level — if you pitch your tent on a slope, you may end up rolling to one end of your tent while you sleep.
Large enough to fit your tent: Make sure you practice setting up your tent before you use it for the first time. If you aren’t certain about the size of your tent, you could accidentally select a spot that is too small to fit your tent and any other elements of your camp, such as a fire pit.
Safe distance from fire pits or grills: To make your campsite as safe as possible, pitch your tent a safe distance away from fire pits or grills. If you put it too close, you risk it catching fire in the event of a stray spark or ember.
Higher ground: The ideal tent site will be on higher ground where you will not be too close to creeks or bodies of water. If it rains, water levels could rise, soaking your camp. A higher-ground location will also prevent rainwater run-off from getting your tent wet.
Shade: When camping in the summer, look for a spot with some shade. If you pitch your tent directly in the sunlight, your tent could get uncomfortably hot in the morning.
Fortunately, all KOA campgrounds have designated Tent Sites that are level, dry and big enough for your tent, so you will always have a perfect spot to pitch your tent!
