Camping is a classic summertime activity, and it’s a great way to spend quality time with your family enjoying the outdoors.

But there are plenty of ways to make camping easier, less stressful, and therefore more fun! And you don’t have to spend a fortune on fancy camping gear or equipment to do it. :-)

Camping Hacks

1. Taco-In-A-Bag

The best thing about camping meals is that it doesn’t have to be complicated! Even the simplest of meals taste great when you’re enjoying them in the great outdoors. These tacos-in-a-bag are a great way to keep things simple without being boring. Kids and adults alike will love them! Get more taco-in-a-bag tips at Camping With Gus.

2. Lantern

Camping lanterns are great for keeping your camp site well lit, but many of them are really bright (as in TOO bright) once you get them into your tent! You can make a softer, more diffused light source using a headlamp and a gallon of water. Just strap the light around the container, with the light pointed towards the water. Much better!

3. Campfire Cones

Don’t forget about dessert for your camping trip! One of the easiest and kid-friendliest (I might have just made that up) camping desserts is Campfire Cones. Just fill a waffle cone with your favorite combo of fruits and sweet treats, wrap it in foil, and place it in the coals of your fire for about 5-10 minutes.

My favorite Campfire Cone additions are chocolate chips, mini marshmallows, and sliced bananas. Yum!

4. Solar Lights

It’s pretty much inevitable that someone is going to get at some point in the night to use the bathroom. And even if you think you know where you’re going, it’s easy to trip over things in the dark. An easy way to give yourself some extra light is to place outdoor solar lights near the stakes or tie-downs on your tent. They’ll charge during the day and give off light at night so you can avoid those midnight mishaps.
