Making Yourself More Comfortable When Camping

The idea of being out under the stars with just nature as your neighbour, can be a really magical experience. But for some, the idea is a bit of a nightmare as they couldn’t think of anything worse than sleeping on the floor, and being uncomfortable and cold. Camping is a great pastime for families and couples alike, and with a few ‘hacks’ it is really possible to make the camping experience unforgettable and much more comfortable. 

Buy a high-quality sleeping bag

Not all sleeping bags are things that are created equal. And if you are going to be camping for more than one night away, then you won’t want any old sleeping bag. A bad night’s sleep from being uncomfortable or cold is the worst, so getting a good quality sleeping bag is a must, and definitely worth the money. If you are buying online, then it is a really good idea to read some of the reviews online, so you can get some honest feedback about it. You’ll want to know the material and what it is made from, as some people don’t want to have a ‘slippery’ sleeping bag. The temperature rating is a must too, though, so check what the tog rating of the sleeping bag is. 

Other Options Than Canvas

One of the things that can put people off going camping is the fact that you have to be under canvas in a tent. It can be noisy, cold, and even quite damp. So it is a good idea to think about other options, if you don’t like the idea of a tent. Many sites will have cabins and ‘glamping’ options, where there are beds and flushing toilets. But you could also look at using your car or van, or even getting a camper van. If you want to change up a van that you currently have, to make it more camping-friendly, then you could contact Redline Campervan Conversions. Then next time you’re heading off for an adventure, you can be more comfortable. 

Fend off mosquitoes and pests

Pests, flies, and bugs are going to make your camping experience pretty uncomfortable. So one of the first things to do is to make sure that there are no holes in your tent, or in the mesh screen that you might have on a campervan or RV. To make sure that you can cover yourself, then getting some mosquito netting, as well as bug spray, is a really good idea. To reduce the risk of pests, then make sure that you are disposing off food in the right way. There are likely to be bins and things to dispose of food. You don’t want to attract any pests and bugs. Then you can have peace of mind when you sleep.

Stay calm

No matter how prepared you are, sleeping somewhere new, especially if you are in a forest and far from civilisation, then it can be unsettling. You don’t want to have trouble sleeping because then you will be really uncomfortable. Deep breaths, staying calm, and even some muscle relaxation exercises can make a difference. A torch will help too!
