Camping Hacks and Tips

We love spending time at the campsite. The sun shining down on us, s’more on an open fire, and the peace and serenity of nature. But with nature, sometimes there can be some minor obstacles or inconveniences. To combat that, we came up with a small list of camping hacks and tips to help you on your next journey.

  • Tea Tree Oil and Water mixed in a spray bottle keep ticks away.
  • Damp Dryer Sheets help keep mosquitoes away.
  • Place glow sticks in water bottles for nighttime bowling.
  • Freeze ice jugs for your cooler. It keeps food cooler longer. And when it melts, you have drinking water.
  • Place your keys on a cork, if you are going near the water. This way they float, and do not sink if accidentally dropped.
  • Toss Sage bundles into the campfire to keep bugs away.
  • Store eggs in a water bottle for an easy scramble.
  • Corn chips are great for starting a fire.
  • Wrap duct tape around your water bottle in case of an emergency. Especially when hiking.
  • Place a foam pool noodle on an awning strut to prevent injuries.
