Get ready for a world of fun with family and friends. Camping in Manitoba is extremely exhilarating and life changing. There are things here you will never see anywhere else. Become one with nature and hold on for a whirlwind experience. Just remember, when you decide to have a camping trip, you need to make sure you have the proper accommodations for you and your family or friends.
You do not want to be in the middle of the wilderness to find out that you have a ten that is made for 5 people and you need sleeping space for 6. The truth about tent camping, is you really only use the tent for sleeping. You cannot shower, eat, or use the bathroom inside of a tent so you just want to make sure you are not overcompensating. It really is a balancing act between being comfortable and having too much gear to carry.
When starting your search for the perfect tent you should first figure out how many people you want to have room for inside the tent. If you have a family of 4 you may want to plan on 6 just in case one of the kids wants to bring a friend. Now, plan on the other gear you will bring and plan on space for that. Of course, you will want to pack lightly as you will not want to carry it all, but you still want to have space inside your tent for safekeeping. Some places require you have your extra items locked up to keep you safe from the bears and the bears safe from your items.
There are different styles of tents to choose from including bubble tents, tents with separate rooms, and hard outside tents. Bubble tents are suitable for a couple people, up to maybe 4 but anything beyond that you need to have a bigger tent, bubbles can only go so high. If you have a family you may want to opt for a tent with a room divider so you and your significant other can have SOME alone time from the kids! Do your research and make the right choice for you and your situation.
