Top 10 Camping Etiquette Tips

8. Meet Your Neighbors
One way to break the ice with neighbors just arriving to the campsite is to offer assistance when they are backing into their sites. Some rigs are incredibly difficult to back up, and some sites are more difficult to back into than others. While you're helping, strike up conversations about kids, baseball, boating, camping, etc. It's the best way to meet your new neighbors!

9. Camping Etiquette for Future Campers
We always rake a circle around the campfire area as the very last thing we do before departure. It leaves a nice manicured look, and we have had several camp hosts compliment us on how good the site looks.

10. Share Fire Starters
Great campfires start with wax and dryer lint and small bathroom paper cups. I melt wax, fill the cups with dryer lint and add the wax over top. Let each set until firm (sometimes I put them in the freezer to speed up the process). These fire starters work every time, and we always have spares for our camping neighbors who have a hard time lighting their campfires.
