Winter is coming and now is the best time to plan your next camping trip and to purchase some necessary camping equipment. Camping gear and gadgets make for perfect gifts for any camper.

Beata Antoszek from, a family camping website, is reminding all the camping enthusiasts to start planning their next year’s trips. Many state parks and provincial park systems accept reservations up to twelve months in advance, so planning early is the best thing to do. If anyone wants to secure the best camping spot or is hoping to get long-weekend reservations for the most popular parks, now is the time to start thinking about it.

For example, Ontario Parks ( accept bookings up to five months in advance of your arrival, while Michigan State Parks take campsite reservations up to 6 months in advance, while reservations for their cabins and yurts are open up to one year in advance (

Beata says: ”It is important to plan ahead to ensure that you have the most enjoyable camping season next year. Now that all provinces and states have on-line reservation systems it is easy to check when they start accepting bookings. Make your reservations early to avoid disappointment.”

As families make their campsite reservations and plans for next spring they should also look into what equipment they are missing and what needs repair. Those things could make for ideal holiday gifts for their closest family members.

Beata adds:”Remember that winter is the best time for all the deals on camping and sports equipment. As we enter the off-season for camping, most of the gear is on sale or at tremendous discount. But it is so easy to overlook any summer equipment when we are looking for those perfect gifts for our friends and family during the holiday season.”

But it should not be so. Such gifts are usually welcome with enthusiasm by the outdoorsy people on the list.
