How do you hang a hammock with a rope?

How do you hang a hammock with a rope? I will go camping and planning on sleeping in a hammock. I know how to tie it and what knots to use but I need advice on how long the ropes should be.

You can use a 16-20 foot rope for each end. Wrap the rope around a tree or a stable post at least two to three times to secure the hammock. Using a simple tie off know is sufficient to hold the rope and the hammock well. The rope will work against itself and hold the hammock by the wraps.
