Keep The Campground Critters Out Of Your RV

, Keep The Campground Critters Out Of Your RV

Sometimes when you’re out in the great outdoors, you’ll experience the not-so-nice side of mother nature. The fact of the matter is, there are wild animals in the great outdoors. And, well, if they smell the ribs your BBQing, or they want to get under the warmth of your truck, they might be attracted to your campsite. Just like traditional campers will make sure they put all of their food up in bear bags, RV campers should take a few extra precautions to keep critters away from their rig.

Pack it all up.

After a long night around the campfire, the last thing you want to do is pack away all of your food and drinks, but trust us, it’s a necessary step to keep unnecessary visitors of the furry variety away. If you forget to pack up the s’more or hot dog materials, you’ll have some four legged guests stop by your campground in a hurry. This is especially true if you are camping at a somewhat popular campsite, where animals like raccoons might be conditioned to come eat up scraps at nightfall.

So, the biggest part of this tip, is taking simple measures to clean up after making food, and dispose of any leftovers properly. Remember, bears and raccoons can get into garbage cans pretty easily, so it’s best to dispose of your garbage at the campground dumpster area.
