How to plan a camping American style
Camping is always an adventure, but if you've been doing it for a long time, you may be running out of ideas on how to make it special. From Camping Mougás we propose a different plan: camping in American movies' style. Melted marshmallows, bonfires, scary stories with friends, family fishing ... sure all of this sounds appealing but, did you know that Galicia is an ideal place to do all these activities?
- Fishing in the river
If there is anything that characterizes American films, it is that the campers always go fishing in the river. Luckily for us, in Galicia we also have numerous spots to practice this activity. A few steps from our Campsite Mougás and Oia, you can find the Trout Preserve of Fragoso and in Porriño you will find another trout fishing spot. Who will fish the largest piece?
- Toasted clouds or hotdogs
In any reputated American camping, there must always be provisions of marshmallows ready to be toasted in the heat of the bonfire. The professional trick? Make a snack with the marshmallow and two crackers. And if you have a sweet tooth, add an ounce of chocolate. Ready to lick your fingers! If on the contrary you want to prepare an easy and delicious meal, put some hot dog sausages to roast and enjoy the most American hotdogs.
- Around the bonfire
But not everything is about eating, sitting by the bonfire while enjoying the moment with friends is also a good camping plan. If you have a musician in the gang, encourage him to take out the guitar and wake up the singer inside you! If you have taken the camping family, prepare a couple of fantastic stories for the little ones, they will have a great time.
- Ducks to the water!
The province of Pontevedra is full of river currents, ideal to get started in outdoor sports as fun as canoeing and kayaking. Throughout the territory, you will find numerous reservoirs, rivers, streams and lakes in which to spend a different afternoon with friends and family. And if what you want is to have a good dip, we recommend the famous Cidadella waterfalls, on the border with Portugal, a unique place where you can immerse yourself in nature.
- Games for all
A good way to take advantage of free time on a camping trip is to organize a team game. We can take ideas from American movies and organize a pilla pilla style "Indians and cowboys" (police and thieves), a yincana with a final prize or "catch the flag", if we are very numerous. Encourage everyone to participate, the more the merrier!
These are just some ideas, but I'm sure you can think of many more to make your next camping trip very entertaining, and make a movie from your next adventure!
