Camping is one of the most inexpensive ways to have a great family outing. That is of course you put to good use some of these amazing and intriguing camping ideas that we have collected for you.
tent camping is still a favorite of many and it really does lend to the whole roughing atmosphere. The ground can be a little hard though so people think of different ways to soften the sleeping quarters. Some go with camp cots which truly are not all that comfortable. Many use the new blow up beds which are great, but you have to be careful they don’t get punctured. Now here in the image you see a fantastic idea. These are those foam puzzle pieces that you can buy for the kids, or the foam matting that interlocks together. They really are a spacesaver for transporting when you have so many other types of camping gear to lug with you.
What a neat way to expand your limited lighting especially when you arrive at the campgrounds after dusk and you now have the task of erecting your tent in the pitch black.
Of course when you are camping you are going to run into all kinds of critters and insects. One that you want to avoid is ticks. What you can do to help deter them is fill a spray bottle with one part tea tree oil, with two parts water. Spray your feet, socks, shoes and pants area with this.
Lets not forget about the mosquitoes. To help keep them at bay just bundle some sage leaves together and place them around your campsite.
