It’s difficult to eat and sleep outdoors, but you don’t have to compromise comfort. There are some things you can attempt to make your campsite feel more like your property, especially if you’re staying for a couple of days or even a few weeks.
Here are 5 easy ways to make your campsite more comfortable:
Choose the right place to pitch your tent
When setting up camp, where you choose to pitch your tent greatly influences your comfort. This will allow you to avoid mosquitoes and other animals that wander around to drink water. Set up camp under a tree – the leaves will help block wind or unexpected rainfall as well as the smoke and the noise of nearby campers.
It is going to be your home for a while, so don’t be afraid to make it your own and add a small amount of personal touch. If you do pitch your tent near or under a tree, put up some battery-operated string lights in the branches. Not only will it look real nice, but will also add some much-needed lighting on your website. You can also decide to bring a lightweight rug or floor mat from house to add extra comfort when you’re barefoot in the tent.
Don’t stick to just a sleeping bag
An inflatable camping bed is way more comfortable to most people compared to sleeping bags, especially to new campers. Bring your favourite thick blanket, a wonderful fluffy pillow and some extra sheets to allow you to sleep soundly in the outdoors so much easier.
Find relaxing activities
The possibilities are endless when you’re in the great outdoors – you can go hiking, fishing, exploring and many more. These are all fun but tiring. When you are in a camping trip, you don’t have to perform these tasks all at once. It’s important that you find time to relax and enjoy nature in a different way. Find time to enjoy a warm drink and read a great book, or just sing and tell stories around the campfire with other campers.
When you feel secure and comfortable in a totally different environment like the outdoors, that is when you begin to have fun! Being out in nature doesn’t mean you can not be cozy so try these easy ways to make your campsite more comfortable!
