While you are getting camp set up, have your little ones paint to pass the time. Works like a charm each and every time.
Meal Prep Before you Leave
Nothing says camping more than eating some delicious campfire food. The sooner that you can set up camp, the sooner you can start to eat. And the more meal prep that you can do before you hit the road, the more quickly you and your family will be able to enjoy some truly incredible meals. Chop the potatoes, the onions and season up the meats. Anything that you can do before you step out that door means that you are one step closer to enjoying everything that camping has to offer.
Plan Before you leave
The worst thing is forgetting something. Promise. Been there. Done that. One trip we literally forgot the toilet paper!! Never again! The $7 spent on the Camping planner is well worth it!! Your sanity is worth it!!
Freeze water before you leave
It’s amazing at just how thirsty you and your family will get when out in nature. When you are pulling up and setting up camp, you are going to get thirsty FAST. And nobody wants hot water when thirsty. Nobody. If you freeze a few jugs of water before you leave, they will be nice and cool and start to thaw out in the warm weather as you are working setting up camp. The more hydrated you stay, the more energy that you’ll have to finish the hard part of camping!
Set up the inside of your camper as much as possible before you leave
Sounds crazy, right? To set up the inside of your camper so that you can then tow that camper somewhere else? Just think about it…If you are able to set up the inside of your camper to an extent, you’ll save so much time at the campground. Put your clothes away in order, have the dishes washed and put up ready to use, and the sheets already put on the beds. Those are all simple things that you can do to set up the inside of your camper so that you can arrive and enjoy camping that much sooner!
Don’t let the weather deter you
The weather is always wrong. Well, most of the time. If you’re worried about a little rain, don’t let it stop you. Camping in the rain can be one of the most fun things ever.
Always pack a coat.
This needs to just be a rule. It never fails that the temperature drops when camping and you may find that you’re freezing and needing something to keep you warm. Just plan on always packing a coat no matter what. It will save you so much time and trouble.
The next time that you decide that you want to go camping, remember these camping hacks! They will not only help you save time, but they will help you start to get out and enjoy nature sooner as well!
