Hiking and Camping Costs - Another reason hiking and camping go together is the costs behind the both of them. Should you want to go camping paying for it as well as the hiking fee... if there is one... can be a way to save money by combining the two activities. Should you make a corollary or rather a reservation at a public setting like a campground park it is likely you will see a hiking trail... which you can do for free. The reverse may also be true. Should you visit a hiking park and it takes you a while to hike it is possible you can stay overnight at the park free of charge. All these activities depend on where you go and what the campground is like can be free. Do some research before embarking on you trip.
It is extremely important to choose the correct gear. For example a choice exists between daypacks which can either be internal or external-frame packs. External backpacks work best for new hikers and are much cooler than the internal ones. Similarly one can choose between sleeping bags of goose down or synthetic fabric. While goose down is warmer synthetic is less expensive and requires less maintenance than goose down.

For the food itself planning out each meal is key. Bringing items like cereal powdered milk granola for breakfast and heat and eat freeze dried meals for lunch and dinners. Remember that weight is an important consideration so bringing a lot of canned foods may tend to weigh you down. Of course you will need plenty of water and a refillable container that you can use along the way. Don`t forget the water purification tablets either again learned that the hard way as well.
