Camping Gear to Make It Feel Less Like Camping

By dadcamp |


We finally did it. Work and weather co-operated to let my son and I spend a night under the stars — for real.

We’ve been fans of uncamping the past few weeks. We just get out of town for a day of hiking, s’more making, fishing, and adventures before returning home before bed. It was great to have a real night with nature.

I’ll admit I’m a city slicker.

While I enjoy camping with my son, I do like my creature comforts. I’m not so crazy as to go out and spend $100 000 on a huge RV or trailer—we stay in a tent when we camp— but I do add some tricks so we don’t totally “rough it” in the woods.

Check out the things I use (and wish I had) to make camping feel, well, less like camping.

    Fun tips, but please don’t pick up wood from your campsite unless you’re camping where it’s specifically allowed. Deadwood provides habitat for small animals and humus for the plants when it decomposes. Happy trails!
