Do More Camping! Text over image of Yogi Bear Campground in Robert LA. with red, yellow and green colors in the backgroundAlthough it might be hard to believe, another year has finally come to an end. Where did all the time go? The older we get, the less time there seems to be on the calendar, making finding time for our hobbies increasingly problematic.

If you feel like you missed out on camping activities last year, you're not alone. As we head into January, now is the best time to develop camping habits for the New Year.

Here's how you can make a New Years' Resolution to do more camping -- with the help of Jellystone Park, of course!

10 Ways To Do More Camping In The New Year

It's not always easy to break away for a camping trip. By relying on these ten helpful tips, you may be able to make the great outdoors a part of your regular schedule!

1. Get Your Family On Board

Tell your family about the adventures you have planned for the New Year, and let their enthusiasm feed your motivation. You'll love bringing everyone together to roast s'mores over the fire, fish at the lake, or mini-golf with Jellystone Park's outstanding amenities!

2. Mark Up The Calendar

Choose your camping dates well ahead of time and immediately put them on the calendar. No 'ifs,' 'ands,' or 'buts!'

3. Keep An Inventory

One of the biggest reasons people put off camping is missing equipment. As soon as you're ready, head to the nearest grocery store and pick up any tents, hammocks, or tools needed for year-round camping trips. Remember: any last-minute items can also be purchased at the Jellystone General Store!

4. Leave The Calendar Open

Your weekends tend to fill up fast. Block off at least one day or weekend a month to plan a trip to the great outdoors. Try pairing up with one of Jellystone Park's themed weekend events for maximum fun.

5. Get The Car Packed Early

The sooner your car gets packed for a trip, the easier it will be to leave! Do what you can to load the vehicle one night before you go. Once you wake up, all you have to do is hit the ground running!

6. Motivate Yourself

Write out your personal camping 'WHY' on a sticky note, then tape it to your mirror. Why do you want to camp more? How can you make it a priority?

7. Organize Yourself

What do you need to go camping? Better yet, where can you find all of your camping gear? Create space in the basement, attic, or garage to keep all your camping supplies in one place. You'll be able to pack your car quickly, efficiently, and without forgetting anything important!

8. Book Spots Early

Lots of camping locations start booking up at the turn of the New Year. Here at Jellystone Park, we can get backed up for months! Book your spot as early as possible if you're committed to doing more camping this year. Your future self will thank you.

9. Get An 'Accountability Partner'

Habits are always easier to form when you have an accountability partner on your side. Find a camping buddy to keep you accountable on your days in the woods, or group up with a like-minded family that will encourage the planning of camping trips.

10. Start Planning Now

The sooner you book a camping site at Jellystone Park, the sooner you can hit the trail! Visit our booking site to put in a request for a cabin, RV plot, or tent site on your next big adventure. We can't wait to see you there!
