Camping season is back and we just thought we would write some reminders for campers visiting Bromont!
Without a doubt food is perhaps the top one of two things you’ll have to prepare when you go camping! At Bromont we have a number of convenience stores where you can pick up a few things you forgot at home, but the easiest thing of course is to be prepared! A reminder that fire is allowed on site at Camping Bromont, however all fires must be put out before 11:00 pm. And we don’t allow artificial fires of any sort.
When you are making food, the simpler the better! Come prepared with recipes that you can toss into one pot! This saves on the amount of dishes you have to do/bring as well as fuel costs. Try recipes that you usually don’t make at home to make things fun! Smores is always a good choice, especially with a campfire.
Pack only what you need to keep things light, and do all the chopping necessary at home so that when you come to the campsite half the work is already done for you. This will also limit the amount of tools you need to bring. Use a cooler to store foods, and try to freeze meats so that they last longer.
For a clean and comfortable tent, leave your shoes outside the tent and use a mat at the entrance to keep dirt out. Keep the tent zipped up to keep bugs out. Bring a small broom to sweep any dirt that might get in. And keep your belongings away from the side of the tent in case of any leaks from the rain.
When building a campfire, read signs to make sure there aren’t any restrictions on the location you want to build a fire. Firewood is on sale onsite. It is not permitted to take firewood off of trees as high-use campsites will be devoid of trees. It is also forbidden to bring your own firewood as we want to keep the spread of invasive insects and our environment safe. When you are building a fire, ensure you also have a bucket of water prepared to put out the fire.
