    Camping is something that gets in your blood and the words, Let's Go Camping probably come out of your mouth quite often. If you have camped in the summer, but never had the pleasure of camping in the winter, then you are missing quite an experience. However, when you decide to camp in the winter, you need to realize that it is not the same as a summer camping experience. You will need to follow the tips below and buy some gear from to help you get through the cold days and even colder nights.

    Bring the Right Sleeping Gear

    Before you jump up and say Let's Go Camping, make sure that you are bringing the right sleeping gear with you on the trip. You want to make sure that you have the right type of sleeping gear such as a double-layered sleeping bag. There is nothing worse than freezing on a night that the temperatures have dropped to where you can see your breath, just because you didn't bother to buy the right sleeping bag and tent for winter weather.

    Let's Go Camping

    Boil the Snow

    You can leave your water filter on the shelf at home. You can boil the snow and it will serve the same purpose your water filter would in the wintertime. It takes longer in the winter for your water filter to function right anyway, so take your time and boil snow to use instead.

    Sleep with Your Boots

    You want to be able to put your boots at the feet of your sleeping bag, well the liners from your boots anyway. You don't want to wake up on a frosty morning, only to find that your boots are frozen. That is one of the quickest ways to get hypothermia and will put a painful end to your fun camping trip in a heartbeat.

    Use Candlelight

    For extra warmth in your tent, you can use a lantern. Make sure that it is far away from you and your ceiling that it is not a fire hazard. This will help to keep your tent warm and cozy, even when the temperature starts to drop outside.

    These are just a few of the tips you will want to use, if you want to go on a winter camping trip. You should plan your trip carefully and go to for more information and to get the proper gear for your winter camping trip.
