Camping can make a wonderful holiday, but without some preparation it can also be hard work. There are lots of things you can do to make your camping trip easier. From your tent to your food, here are some different ideas to make your next camping trip a little easier.

Time your arrival
Arrive in the day time if possible. If you’ve ever experienced it, you’ll know that putting a tent up in a dark and unfamiliar place isn’t easy or pleasant. Arriving in the day time will make it easier to pick a good spot, and easier to put up your tent.

Practice before you go
It also helps if you know how to put up your tent before you go. It’s much easier to figure out how to do it in your own back garden than when you get to your campsite where there may be more difficult conditions.

Keep warm and cosy
Take a good quality sleeping bag. A night spent shivering will make for a less pleasant trip all round if you’re tired. It’s worth spending a little more to get decent kit to make you more comfortable and to enable you to get a good night’s sleep and enjoy your holiday more.

Easy meals
Make cooking easy with some meals which are specifically designed to be used while camping, with minimal equipment. The easiest of these is self-heating meals which come with a meal in a sealed pouch and a single use heater. Simply put the meal pouch into the heater, add a little water to activate the heater and wait a few minutes for a warm, tasty meal with no fuss and no mess.

A camping holiday should be fun, not a chore, so make best use of these tips to make your holiday a little easier. We hope you have a great holiday wherever you go!
