The term “primitive camping” may be a bit deceptive. It implies camping in an uncivilized wilderness, killing your food with your hands and reverting to cave man life, or what we think of as caveman life. But primitive camping, while much more of an adventure than camping in prepared camp grounds doesn’t have to be dangerous or harsh. Just like anything else, with good training and preparation, it can be great fun and an exciting adventure for your team. Primitive camping is generally not a good family outing. A privative camping enthusiast is one who is in excellent physical condition and has conquered advanced camping skills.
The craze to get closer to nature is becoming more and more popular and a cry to get back to the basics is leading many novice outdoorsmen to hit the trails with little or no experience battling the elements. Crowded with eco-tourism toys from GPS gadgets to personal packs, adventure stores claim to give you the edge you need when it comes to surviving your quest. The fact is you don't necessarily need those necessities to rough it successfully. Find all the tools you need to make your primitive camping experience healthy and comfortably here.
