Choose the lowest spot in the campsite:

Another benefit of selecting the camp at the lowest spot is that you can easily shift to the safer place in case of emergency.
Leave your dirty bag & boot outside the camp:
Your camp will be your house for a few days during your trip. So, keep your camp clean like the way you keep your home. Remember that taking care of the cleanliness and hygiene of your camp is your responsibility to avoid falling ill or contracting any disease. Leave your dirty bag and boot outside so that no dirt can enter your camp.

Do not leave them unpacked, otherwise any animal can enter your camp and damage all your food. Even imagining any such situation can be very scary. So, avoid such ignorant attitude and ensure the safety of your limited food.
