    Default on-site camping security

    Sorry if this is similar to other threads...

    Where do people leave belongings while not in the campsite? I was thinking of leaving some things in my car, or a small lock for the tent's zipper. The lock probably wouldn't be the best idea but at least keep things a little safer. Anyone with experience with this?

    Thanks!

    I'd lock all your valuables in the car. Locking your tent seems like an invitation to theft, IMO.

    a lock on a tent wont work...they can use a knife to cut it open anyways...keep it in the car.

    I was about to say the same thing... locks in a nylon tent seem a little bit useless.

    Well, there is security on the campgrounds, but it's a big place and sh*t happens man... They can't watch each and every tent all day long. Valuables (money, passport, tickets, etc.) should stay in the car.

    last year i brought a safe and stashed it in my tent inside of an ice chest which was covered up with a blanket

    hope that helps
    I don't have anything clever to say right now.
