Welcome to WildernessCamping.com

Wilderness Camping was created with the intent of examining various methods, gear, philosophies and skills used to safely explore the backcountry wilderness. I believe personal responsibility and individual choice are the cornerstones of planning and enjoying any wilderness activity, and as such, advocate common sense over any particular methodological or philosophical doctrine.

I grew-up in British Columbia, surrounded by the nature of a coastal rain forest. Through a kid’s eyes, my backyard was an untamed wilderness of immense scope; a place to be explored and danger averted. Deer, black bear, raccoon and skunk were common night time visitors to our garden. My dad was an avid outdoor enthusiast with the patience of a saint, and many of my earliest memories are of camping and hiking with my family. A passion for nature and the outdoors is something I continue to enjoy today.
