10 Ways To Make Your
Campsite More Comfortable

There's nothing like a spring camping trip to shake off the winter weather and get ready for a couple seasons of outdoor fun. If you're planning to claim your territory at a local campground, settle in at a National Park or just walk into the wilderness, you might be wondering how to make your camping experience a little more comfortable for you and your family. Learn a few tips on what to pack, how to pick your campsite, campfire cooking tips, and how to improve the overall comfort of your sleeping quarters with these 10 ideas to make your campsite more comfortable.


Selecting Your Campsite

1. Natural Protection

Where you choose to set up camp can have a huge impact on your camping trip. You can use natural elements to your advantage. Coverage from tree branches can help block an unexpected rainfall, while tree trunks, boulders, and other features of the natural landscape can help block the wind, not to mention the noise and smoke from other campers.

2. Staying Dry

Sometimes it can be difficult to figure out where to set up your tent. Finding a durable, dry, and flat surface is key. The flatter the surface, the less likely puddles will form around your campsite when there's heavier rainfall. A slightly elevated surface is also ideal to help with drainage. You don't want to be hopping around your camp after a rainy night or find your gear soaked in the morning.

3. Morning Sun

Morning person or not, very few people like to be woken up by sharp rays of blinding sunlight. Keep in mind where the sun will be rising and setting to help solve the issue before it starts. You might be able to find natural elements that block the sun a little longer and will help give all the people at your camp a more comfortable sleep while making mornings a little easier on the eyes.

4. Away from Water

Many campers recommend setting up camp at least 200 feet away from freshwater. Aside from practicing sound Leave No Trace principles, it will also help keep your campsite away from pesky insects like mosquitos, decrease the likelihood of running into animals that wander down to the water for a drink in the middle of the night and also stop them from traipsing through your camp.


Home Sweet Home

5. Simple Flooring

If you don't want to be walking around in your shoes constantly, or if you just want to add an extra level of comfort to your tent, consider taking an old rug or floor mat to cover the ground or the uncomfortable surface of your tent. Roll up one of your used rugs, slip it in the car and spread it out when you get to your campsite for an extra layer of clean, padded luxury for your bare feet.

6. Using the Trees

Another simple way to make your campsite feel more like home is to use the trees to add style, as well as practical touches. Bring along a few battery-powered string lights to give your camp a beautiful look and provide some convenient visibility around your campsite. You can also use the trees to spread out clotheslines to dry wet clothes and hang up food to keep it away from animals.


7. Bring the Bedding

The last place you want to cut corners at your campsite is your sleeping quarters. It's difficult for many people to get a good night's sleep in the outdoors. You can fix this by trying to make your camping bed as much like your home bed as possible. Don't pull the covers off your bed at home, but don't be afraid to bring along bedding like sheets, good pillows and quilts to add to your tent.

8. Packing Tips

Space is always an issue when you're packing for camping trips, so trim things down where you can. Focus on packing the essentials first. For clothes, make sure you have enough options to stay dry. Over-packing things like socks can make a huge difference in terms of your comfort level, while bringing additional layering options will help keep you warm on cold spring days and nights.


Campfire Cooking

9. Plan Your Menu

You can't create a comfortable campsite without bringing the right meals, snacks and campfire cooking tools. Plan ahead by mapping out your menu for the entire trip, accounting for every meal and the number of people in your party. Even if you're going to be doing a lot of campfire cooking or grilling, you'll want to bring some quick snacks and as much prepared food as possible.

10. Keep Ice Cold

Once you plan the meals, it's easy to figure out the types of tools you need to cook outdoors and what food storage to bring. But it can be difficult to keep things cold, so if you're relying on a cooler, freeze all food ahead of time, use blocks of ice instead of cubes, keep your cooler out of the sun, cover it with a wet towel and bury it partially in the ground to make your ice last longer.
