Recreation for Rookies: First Time Campers

If you live in northern Michigan you know getting outdoors is key, especially during the summer months.  For some people, camping is one way to make the most of the wilderness but sometimes it can be an overwhelming experience if you’re new to the game.

During our “Recreation for Rookies” segment on the four this week, we’re back with the crew of Backcountry North in Traverse City with tips for first time campers.  Michael Ogle with Backcountry North breaks down what we need to know from the best clothing to water bottles and headlamps.

Ogle says if you have the right equipment and clothing the whole camping experience becomes easy and fun for the whole family.
