The Weekend Camper – Tips & Tricks For Weekend Camping

November 15, 2016

Although it is a well-known fact that camping during the week can provide more solitude and may even save you a few dollars, many weekend warriors choose to use the two days off they receive at the end of each week to explore nature and find respite and relaxation in the great outdoors. If you have a hectic work schedule and typically find yourself using your Friday night to drive out to a campground, here are a few tips to make the most of your quick camping trip.

With campgrounds being more populated during the weekend, noise may become a concern, especially for those who are light sleepers. The experts at Section Hiker recommend using Mack’s Pillow Soft Silicone Earplugs as they are inexpensive, sold at most drugstores, and comfortable for most people as the silicone material allows you to form a shape that best meets your needs. This is also a great option for those traveling with friends or family members that tend to snore while they sleep!

Another concern for weekend campers may be the level of privacy they can expect during a busy camping weekend. If you are tent camping and do not have the luxury of the walls that come with cabin rentals or RVs, you may want to consider a camping privacy screen such as the WallUp Instant Outdoor Privacy Screen. This will allow you to feel like your space is more secluded even with the presence of fellow campers nearby. The Leapair Changing Tent is also another option for added privacy on the campground, although an item like this is unnecessary for campers using the private restroom facilities found at many campgrounds such as our Highway West Vacations locations.
