camping tipsCamping is great, but the more knowledge you have the better time you will have.

Here are some tips to help make your camping trip all that you want it to be and more!

How to Sleep in a Tent Comfortably?

The first thing you want to check before pitching your tent is which way the wind is blowing. You want the entrance to your tent to be away from the wind.

Also check the position of the campfire so that your tent won’t be full of smoke. The ground beneath where you intend to pitch your tent should be cleared of rocks and any other type debris.

You want it to be as smooth as possible. Laying a tarp will prevent moisture from leaking into the tent.

Inflatable pillows and mattresses can make sleeping in a tent almost like sleeping in your own bed at home. Keeping your camping tent tidy will also keep away marauding animals and insects especially if you eat in the tent and accumulate crumbs.

Buy Yourself a Collapsible Bucket

Many campers agree that a collapsible bucket is a must. They are useful in a variety of ways. They are easily packed and are lightweight. [Camping Equipment]

Washing up is a snap with one and they can dip water for you in places that are hard to reach.

Biting Insects

Citronella candles can drive away biting insects from your campsite and they smell good too. There are also a number of commercial bug repellents you can utilize.

Did you know that if you are wearing dark clothing you are more likely to attract bugs? The colors black and navy blue are special favorites. Wear bright cloths and try to avoid scented products such as perfume, shampoo and deodorant.

Dealing with Animals at the Campsite

Never leave your garbage by the campsite. You can find a nearby tree to store your food if your vehicle is not near. Never leave food stuffs out on a picnic table and especially not in the tent.

Avoid eating in your tent as not only scraps of food may be left behind, but the smell of the food will linger and attract animals.

Camping is a great way to get in touch with nature and enjoy the great outdoors. The more you know the less likely anything unexpected happening and if it does you will be well prepared.
