Camping is an amazing way to connect with nature and the great outdoors. Whether you’re an avid car camper or an off-the-grid enthusiast, the sky’s the limit when it comes to taking your camping experience to the next level. Even the most seasoned campers wouldn’t refuse the option to add a little more comfort to their camp, which is why glamping is growing in popularity. By mixing “glamour” and “camping,” you can enjoy the comforts of home, without sacrificing your connection with nature. If you’re looking to create your own upscale, outdoor escape, incorporate these elements in your next camping experience.
Enjoy Cozy, Plush Bedding
The cornerstone of every enjoyable overnight camping trip is a good night’s sleep. This is why having a luxurious, comfy bed to retire to after a long day of activities is essential. Sleeping on the ground can be cold and uncomfortable, so try elevating your bed with a cot base or a plush air mattress. Just like your bed at home, use soft sheets and warm blankets to add comfort and warmth. And no cozy bed is complete without a fluffy comforter and lots of pillows. Once you’re resting comfortably, you might have a hard time leaving your tent in the morning!
Add Touches of Home
Adventures are always more pleasant when you don’t have to leave the comforts of home behind. Make your camp feel like home by bringing with you a colorful outdoor rug, fresh flowers, and other decorative touches. Add a cozy ambiance to your camp by hanging LED string lights from the surrounding trees. Not only are string lights a functional source of light under the night sky, but they also help highlight the beautiful scenery outside your tent.
Camping and exploring the outdoors provides a rare opportunity to unplug and take a break from digital devices. When you go camping, set up a foldable table and host a classic game night! Bring your favorite yard games, board games, and cards. Camping with kids? Glow sticks provide endless hours of entertainment in the natural darkness. And be sure to take advantage of the low amounts of light pollution by stargazing with a telescope, binoculars, or the naked eye. You’ll spot constellations, planets, and stars, unlike anything you can see at home!
Cook Delicious Campfire Meals
No luxury camping trip would be complete without a functional camp kitchen and hearty food to fuel your outdoor adventures! Utilize a grill onsite, bring your own portable one, or add a steel grate to your campfire to cook up savory wood-grilled delights. Don’t be afraid to get creative with your outdoor cooking—bring a dutch oven or cast-iron skillet to make anything from a gourmet steak dinner to a pineapple-upsidedown cake. And of course, an evening around the campfire wouldn’t be complete without s’mores! Bring unique ingredients beyond the standard components, like gourmet chocolate, stuffed marshmallows, and cinnamon graham crackers, to take this camping staple to a delicious new level.
