If you haven’t anyone to borrow from, consider buying used. So many times, people purchase all necessary camping gear only to find they didn’t enjoy it. Facebook Marketplace and Craigslist are LOADED with camping stuff for really cheap.
There are three different types of camping when it comes to location. A private campground, state campground, and boondocking. They vary a lot on what they offer and what campers and families are looking for in an experience. How much are you willing to rough it?
