So you are going to camp. Hopefully you know where you are going, but by campsite I am not referring to the town / city / site name. By campsite here I mean how to layout your camp.

It may not seem that important to some people, but the first time they wake up to a tent that has been crushed by fallen branches, or smoke blowing into their tent from the campfire, or experience the '10 mile' trek to the toilets in the middle of the night they will regret that they did not put a little more thought into their camp's layout.

Most of this admittedly is common sense, but we all make mistakes and learn from previous experience to make that next camp run a little more smoothly.
