Whether you’re experienced when it comes to the outdoors or you’re a nature novice who has been persuaded by your adventurous groups of friends to sleep outside, here are a few ways to make your next camping trip more comfortable for you and your camping companions.


Pick an accommodating location. Choosing a formidable place to literally “set up camp” can depend on who you’re camping with. If you’re engaging in a quick weekend jaunt in the wilderness, look for sites near your hometown in case camping newbies need a quick getaway or only want to join for the daytime activities. Services like Hipcamp can help you choose the perfect campsite by filtering out what you don’t need and filtering in what you do.


Pack creature comforts from home. If you’re absolutely in love with the pillows you sleep on each night and fear you may not get a good night’s rest without them, see if you have enough room to pack one with you. To protect it from the elements, use two pillowcases or even an old t-shirt.


Meal plan wisely. If you’re not much of an outdoor chef, consider preparing and packing meals that store easily and won’t go bad, like cold salads, hummus, cheese and charcuterie, plus breakfast or granola bars for the morning.


Bring extra (waterproof) layers, even if you don’t think you’ll need them. While nighttime temps in your hometown may be comfortable enough, temperatures in the woods can dip even lower. Prep with extra layers, including a thick pair of socks, which will come in  handy on chilly nights.
