The newly released report details everything a person needs to consider before camping outdoors and suggests locations around America. It emphasizes the importance of mental health, especially during this time, and says that outdoor activities calm the mind while following health guidelines of limiting social interaction.

Current data estimate that more people are suffering from anxiety or depression. Psychiatrists estimate that being confined at home may be exacerbating these conditions and recommend self-care strategies such as mindfulness and meditation.

Camping outdoors can improve meditation since it physically takes a person away from their stressors. Further, being around nature is medically proven to lower blood pressure and improve relaxation. Camping is also recommended as an alternative to couples therapy as it allows two people to have face-to-face conversations without distractions.

The newly released report recommends some camping spots in the U.S. for stargazing. On the top of its list is the Badlands National Park in South Dakota. Night sky viewing is available Friday through Monday and park rangers recommend camping during the summer to see the most stars. Telescopes are provided by the park.

Those who prefer camping under a more surreal background can try the Joshua Tree National Park in California. As the name suggests, the park has several hundred Joshua trees which are distinctly shaped and are considered by some to be “magical”.

The report then lists essential camping gear, such as a tent, sleeping bags, flashlights with extra batteries, and lanterns, among others. It reminds campers to err on the side of caution and pack more health and safety items, just in case.

It also encourages campers to bring extra rope, repair kits, first aid kits, and a saw or ax to cut firewood, if the park allows it. The report ends with clothing suggestions.
