Camping Hacks That Every Travel Enthusiast Needs To Know

Camping can be daunting if you’re pretty new to the game, which is why it’s important to know that there’s always ways to make your experience go as smoothly as possible.

Don’t forget to pack tin foil

Tin foil is one of the most important things you’ll want to bring with you on your camping trip. Almost anything can be cooked on a campfire when it’s wrapped in tin foil, and this will help you navigate your meals if you find yourself forgetting a utensil - or if you’re stuck out in the wilderness Bear Grylls-style.

Bring water purification tablets

If you find your water supply finishing with no way to obtain any more (at least quickly, anyway), water purification tablets are essential to help you if you need to get water from a nearby stream. If you’re also looking for ways to carry less weight, you can bring them along to replace any heavy water bottles.

Duct tape is an essential part of your packing

Duct tape has a range of uses, from patching up holes that may appear in your tent, to treating blisters and more.

Remove cardboard from inside toilet paper

By removing the inner cardboard tubing from your toilet roll, it’ll allow you to carry much more for your trip - and everyone knows the way to a happy camping experience is to ensure you have enough toilet paper for the whole crew. You may even be a lifesaver for new camping friends you meet along the way who didn’t think of this nifty hack!

Keep the mosquitoes at bay with sage

If you’re camping somewhere where you’re likely to be attacked by mosquitoes, then bring along some spare sage in your bag. Pop it on your BBQ and away they go - they’re not a fan of the herb.

Always bring baby wipes!

From cleaning essential items to even giving yourself a quick freshen up, baby wipes are important for keeping your camping area comfortable. Just remember to dispose of them correctly - they’re not the best for the environment.
