How To Choose Good Camping Lights

When planning your camping trip, you should always have a quality headlamp, flashlight, and camping lantern on your packing list. The right battery lights will keep you safe and comfortable throughout your journey through the


Here are some essential qualities you should look for in a good camping light:

1. Battery Operated.

As nostalgic as those old kerosene lamps may be, battery operated lights are much more practical. You can turn them on and off whenever you need to, and they require much less paraphernalia. During bad weather, they’re a lot

safer to have in your tent. Make sure to find one with a long battery life, or one with a recharge crank so you’ll have light until you choose to return to civilization.

2. Small.

When you’re lugging your belongings up a mountain, an extra pound or two makes the biggest difference. You want something light, compact, and easy to carry.

3. Bright.

Your light may need to be small. When rummaging through your knapsack, cooking your food, or scoping out a campsite, your lanterns, flashlights, and headlamps need to emit a massive number of lumens. This will keep you

organized and out of danger. You may also find it helpful to invest in a light with several different brightness settings. That way you can set up your camp and read yourself to sleep with just one light.

4. Hands-Free.

If you only bring a flashlight, you’ll have a difficult time performing any tasks after dark. You’ll definitely want a headlamp to illuminate whatever is directly in front of you, helping you see when hiking, gathering firewood, or

pitching your tent. A camping lantern that’s freestanding, magnetic, or hang-able is also a good idea when creating a well-lit campsite.

5. Weatherproof.

This one’s really a no-brainer when it comes to spending the night in the wilderness. Odds are all your camping equipment will be in harsh conditions at some point on a trip. You need a light that won’t wimp out if it gets a little

damp or cold. Look for a hearty, weatherproof or waterproof light, that can hold up under extreme temperatures.

6. Emergency Signals.

For extra safety on camping trips, you want a light that has the ability to signal for help. The best lights will have this feature built right in, activated by a special button or switch. If you get lost or run into trouble, this is one of the

best ways to get help fast, especially after dark. We even found a crank-chargeable flashlight that can power your cellphone in a pinch!

7. LED.

As a general rule, LEDs make the best camping lights, because they offer all the qualities already listed here, and more. They’re light, bright, portable, long-lasting, and very durable – able to withstand cold temperatures and jarring

vibrations better than any other light source. Plus, they don’t attract bugs, because they don’t emit UV rays like other kinds of lights.

6 Tips for Camping in the Fall and Winter

Camping doesn’t have to be reserved for warmer months. There may even be an upside to taking a trip when the temperature dips, says Jason Stevenson, author of “The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Backpacking and Hiking.”

“Camping in cooler weather lets you experience the outdoors in a whole new way,” he says. “There are far fewer people, the bugs that bite are dormant and the fall foliage is spectacular.”

Here are five tips to help you get the most from your cool-weather camping trip.

1. Check the Forecast Before You Go

Once you select your campsite destination, check the National Weather Service for the latest forecast before departing. Checking the forecast at your exact location can help you prepare for wind, rain, sleet or snow. Each weather

condition may dictate different types of gear needed for your trip. For example, snowy conditions may require a tent rated for use during all four seasons.

Your off-the-beaten-path destination may not have a ZIP code, but you won’t need one with this site, according to Simply zoom into your destination on the website’s map, search for the name of a nearby lake or

mountain, or even type in your destination’s longitude and latitude, and get a seven-day forecast.

2. Layer Up

In the fall and winter, the temperature difference between mornings and evenings, and clear and overcast days, can be drastic, so dressing in layers that you can easily add or subtract as the temperatures change is a must, according


For your base layer — no matter how cold the weather — choose a long-sleeved shirt made of a lightweight fabric, suggests. The thin fabric will wick away sweat and dry faster that a thicker fabric. A lightweight

wool or polyester shirt or sweater is ideal for the second layer. Your outer layer can be a jacket that’s resistant to wind and water. In really cold weather, a puffy jacket — which provides great insulation — with a hood is ideal.

3. Use a Cold-Weather Sleeping Bag

Sleeping bags are rated by temperature. Some bag ratings include a simple rating in degrees: That rating indicates the coldest temperature at which the bag will keep you warm, according to So, if it’s rated as a

30-degree bag, it should keep you comfortable in temperatures down to 30 degrees.

However, notes that some manufacturers have adopted standardized testing for temperatures, called European Norm (EN) testing, and give their bags two temperature ratings, one that indicates the lowest

temperature at which the average woman can sleep comfortably, and one that shows the lowest temperature at which a man can sleep comfortably.

Before you choose, consider your own sleep patterns: if you tend to get hot while sleeping, you’re likely to be more comfortable in a bag that’s designed for warmer temperatures.

“If the weather is expected to drop to 25 degrees Fahrenheit, you may want to use a bag that is rated as a 30- to 45-degree bag,” Stevenson says. The lighter, warm weather sleeping bag can act as a counterbalance to a camper’s

excessive body heat, even in the colder temperature.

Mummy-style sleeping bags may help keep you warmer because they cling closer to your body, according to Most mummy-style sleeping bags come with a hood that surrounds your head, helping to capture and

retain heat.

4. Pack a Sleeping Pad

In cold weather, a sleeping pad can be even more important than a sleeping bag, Stevenson says. “The cold ground soaks up your body’s warmth fast. While a pad puts a layer of insulation between you and the ground.”

Sleeping pads have R-values, which measure thermal resistance, or how well they are insulated. R-values for sleeping bags range from 1 (minimally insulated) to over 11 (very well insulated), according to The

higher the R-value, the better the insulation. For cool-weather camping, you’ll want a sleeping pad with an R-value of 4.0 or more, Stevenson says.

For maximum comfort and warmth, he adds, “I like two pads: a foam pad next to the ground, with an air pad on top. The foam protects your air pad from punctures; the air pad provides additional cushioning.”

5. Find the Right Spot for Your Tent

Because cold air sinks into areas such as a riverbed in a valley, you’ll want to find a campsite that is slightly higher in elevation to stay warmer, Stevenson says. And angle your tent so its door faces east or southeast (if possible) to

take advantage of the warm early morning sunlight. “The coldest part of your camping trip will be the early morning,” Stevenson says. “But mornings are beautiful — quiet and full of animal activity. You won’t want to miss them

because you’re too cold to get out of your tent.”

6, Carry long lasting emergency light

When you go camping in winter, a high quality emergency light is very needed, you’d better choose anti-press, anti-shock, long lasting one, like powerbank feature waterproof IP68 rechargeable led camping light JiuHe

Optoelectronics made, it could lasting for more than 20hrs would be better, if the light could be charge by solar panel also is better, you can use the light for lighting also could charge your phone

Keep these tips handy to help enjoy your next cool-weather camping trip.

Camp Safety: Choose the Right Camping Safety Gear

When most folks think of camping, it’s all about fresh air, sunshine and outdoor fun. Unlike back-country camping, where you rough it on your own, campgrounds like those at Kampgrounds of America have amenities like warm

showers, swimming pools and a store for those last-minute needs.

But even at organized campgrounds like that, keeping safety a top priority is an important part of having a good experience. Over the past six months, North America has seen flooding, tornadoes and hurricanes—natural

phenomena that bring potential devastation for those who aren’t prepared. But even more common are the potential dangers, which are an inherent part of camping, like sunburns, bug bites and injuries that happen during daily


Along those lines, we asked our campers via social media what gear they take with them when they hit the road. And some of the answers might surprise you:

KOA’s Friends

Facebook friend Bryan Hensley has an emergency kit that’s ready to go when he camps. That includes, he says, “a weather radio, a map of where we are, water, first aid kit [and] flashlights.” He and fellow KOA Facebook friend

Christine Boerner Jones also suggest bringing both extra propane and nonperishable foods.”

In today’s world, cellphones are a key part of not only day-to-day life, but also emergency preparedness. Keeping a printed list of emergency numbers to reference quickly is a must, especially if your cellphone battery dies and you

need to get a hold of someone in an emergency. Also consider including an “ICE” (in case of emergency) contact name and number on your list, too.

Some campers who responded to our inquiries were also focused on some of the more basic needs, including toilet paper, propane, a good book, extra batteries, rain ponchos and, according to Emmy Reid, rain pants are a

must. “I’m not sure why it took me 15 years to figure that out,” she says.

Nancy and Tom Kilmer told us via Facebook that in addition to traditional emergency gear, they had another concern. “We travel with five cats and a cocatoo [sic],” they wrote, “so we have cat carriers and a carrier for the ‘too.”

Cathy Gibbs, who has two dogs, makes sure that she brings along extra food for them as well.

More Tips:

Keep tabs on the weather forecasts.

Plan your meals in advance.

Stay on trails to avoid tick bites.

Pack a first aid kit.

Never approach wild animals (or your neighbor’s dog).

Wear sunscreen and insect repellent.

Supervise your children. Campgrounds are safe places, but parenting is still a must.

Be careful around water. Never leave children unattended at a pool, river or pond.

Keep propane canisters upright, out of the sun and away from the campfire.

Keep the cooler full of ice.

Practice good fire safety, and keep it in the fire ring.

Be sure your campfire is never left unattended.

Wash your hands often.

Check your site for—and keep it clear of—sharp objects.

Where To Go Camping With Dogs

—–Happiness is a warm puppy

One of the most common questions we get in our inbox from readers,  is regarding taking the family dog on a camping trip.       “Are dogs allowed?”   “Can we bring our


The answer is always going to depend on the location, but if your destination is a National Park, the answer will be a decisive “no”.

But there are options, so do read on and find out where you can get more info on dog-friendly locations, plus some tips to camping with dogs.

National Parks

Dogs and National Parks don’t go together.

Taking your pet into a State or National Park is forbidden in order to protect our native wildlife.

Your dog might be this calm and well behaved dog, kept on a leash, but that still does not make it permissible to take them into the Park when you camp.

The following is an excerpt from the NSW Government Environment & Heritage page, giving a few reasons why you can’t take your dog into a National Park:

Native animals see dogs as predators. The lasting scent left by dogs can easily scare small animals and birds away from their homes, often causing them to leave their young unprotected.

Dog faeces carry diseases which can be harmful to wildlife and people, and also add nutrients to the soil, increasing the spread of weeds.

If dogs and other domestic pets have frightened native animals away from popular visitor areas, there will be no wildlife for other visitors to see.

Dogs can interfere with the enjoyment of other park visitors.

Assistance dogs, or dogs that provide support for people with disabilities, are an exception.

Failure to pay attention to this rule in a National Park can result in you being asked to leave, or an on-the-spot fine (and could make a cheap camping trip, a whole lot more pricey).

Dog Friendly Camping

You know that a National Park is out of the question, so what are your options?

Basically, the answer is going to depend on where you are staying.    The rules will vary from place to place, so you will need to do some homework.

If in doubt, call and ask.    A call to the property you want to stay at, and finding out the rules about pets could save you time and money.

Some private properties will also have a ban on pets, so its important to check,

Taking your Dog Camping – Some Tips

Make sure if a dog is meant to be on leash, it is on leash at all times.

Collar with ID should be on your dogs at all time.

Reflective collars/leashes are handy to have on pooch at night to maximise chances of being seen by everyone.

Know where the nearest vet to your campsite is.   Hopefully you won’t need a vet, but when something goes wrong, it’s handy to know where you might have to go in a hurry.

If camping in a part of the country that has ticks, make sure you have done all you can to prevent ticks, and know how to treat an animal that has a tick (especially if you are visiting a tick prone area, and you aren’t familiar with

this dangerous problem for animals).

Check that vaccinations are up to date.   If a location requires proof of such vaccinations, have a printout by your vet ready to handover.

Keep your dog close to you and your campsite at all times (part of good camping etiquette).  A long lead might be good to have, so your dog can wander but never too far.

Is your dog a big barker?   Loves to yap a lot, all the time?    In a camping situation, people near you will tire of that very, very, quickly.    You may need to consider that your dog isn’t really the right companion to have on a

camping trip.      Do consider the behaviours of your dog and how your dog could be on a camping trip, and how you plan to manage such a situation.

Don’t leave your dog unattended.    It’s behaviour could deteriorate out of boredom or loneliness in a strange environment, and could result in bothering other campers.

CLEAN UP after your dog.     It’s disgusting to be on a trail or around a campsite and find dog faeces there.    Like you have to do in a park, or on a walk, clean it up properly.   Sure you are outside, but if you are near others, they

Explainer: How To Choose A Right Tent For Camping

tent protects you from the elements and forms years of outdoor memories. Your home in the hills, a tent is one of the biggest purchases an outdoor enthusiast will make. Take the time to weigh your needs before cracking the

wallet.With camping season upon us, we took a snapshot of the current tent market to help you choose the best tent for your outdoor pursuits. Pick a tent that’s right for you. Learn more about tent types, materials, storage and tent

care below.

Choosing The Right Tent

Step one: assess how you will use your tent. Be honest with yourself.

Will you roll it out of the minivan? Or do you need to haul deep into the backcountry? If so, how many miles? While two pounds per person is reasonable for a weekend backpacking trip, you may want to go lighter for distance

hikes. That said, if you will only use it car camping, weight shouldn’t be a significant concern.

Consider the weather where you camp most of the time. If you use it mostly in the heat of the summer, ventilation is a primary concern. Even if you camp occasionally in cold weather, choose your tent based on the majority usage.

How often do you really camp in the snow?

How many people will sleep in it? Each person at a minimum needs two-feet of elbow room. Big and tall folks will want more width and a longer tent. Will you bring a dog? What about kids?

In Store Evaluation

At the store, even if the tent is already set up, ask if you can set it up. Is it intuitive? Do the poles snap together easily? Will you be able to set it up in the dark, with cold fingers, in the rain?

Crawl inside, stretch out. Do your head or toes touch either side? Sit up in the tent. Can you see yourself suiting up in it each morning? When you wake up in the night to answer the call of nature, will you disturb your tent mates?

Evaluate the doors and ventilation. Will it ventilate properly for your conditions? If there’s condensation (there likely will be), where will it drip or pool? Can you fit your party inside, in sleeping bags, without touching the walls?

That will be the first source of moisture.

Adrenaline Rushes In August

Summer is wrapping up for the kids and it’s time to get in some of those last minute adventures. The weather is hopefully a bit more bearable, and it’s the perfect time to get outdoors. Taking on a new outdoor sport is always a great time and we can’t help but encourage it. Let’s dish out what gets your blood pumpin’.
Ever thought about mountain biking? It’s one of the more daring activities, but all you need to enjoy this sport is a quick-thinking brain. Also, there are several different types of mountain bikes, so be sure you have the proper gear before hitting the trails. Do some research in advance about the spots you’ll be exploring, too—you don’t want to get stuck out there.
Skydiving and bungee jumping are exhilarating activities, but they aren’t for the faint-hearted. But if you’ve got the courage, there’s no better way to face your fears than to literally jump right into them. Round up a few of your friends to join you and make it that much more exciting.
What about whitewater rafting or kayaking? Hopefully you’re the up-for-a-challenge type, and if not, you should research your skill-level options before committing to either of these activities. It’s the perfect mix of exercise and fear, and comes highly recommended. You will walk away feeling like you’re on top of the world. Don’t forget a watertight pack for this adventure!
Another extreme activity is paintballing, which is awesome and will make you drop to your knees. There are many places that offer indoor and outdoor fields, and the paintball “wars” typically involve everyone on the field, not just your group. Prepare to be covered in paint by the time you leave. We recommend wearing jeans; thank us later.
Finally, there’s sandboarding; it’s like snowboarding but on sand. The only tricky part of this activity is that you’ll need sand dunes. So, if you happen to make a trip to California, stop by to the Imperial Sand Dunes on your way.
Have a blast chasing adrenaline rushes in August!

Outdoorsy Pumpkin-Carving Ideas

Have you thought about how you’re going to carve your jack-o’-lantern this year? Fall is one of our most-loved seasons, the weather is out of this world, and it’s the perfect time to venture into nature. We’ve come up with so many pumpkin-carving ideas that we just had to share.
Scenic carvings are a traditional, which is why we love them. If you’re an avid hiker, why not carve the mountains, a forest, or just one single spooky tree? We also thought about carving a few of our favorite leaves. If there’s a tree with your favorite leaves in the area, use a real leaf as a stencil—this is a great one for the kids. For a real challenge, you can even try carving of a map of the world or of your favorite travel destination.
There’s so much when it comes to outdoor gear—why not carve ‘em? A tent, a helmet, ski goggles, trekking poles, sneakers, a fishing rod, a canoe, or even your car/truck/back roader will do! With a good eye and a steady hand, these designs are possible.
Animals you might see on the trail count as an awesome idea inspired by nature and outdoor adventures. Snakes, rabbits, ducks, butterflies, deer, birds (owls), foxes, and more! There are so many options.

Ever think of taking a stab at typography? We think it would be super cool to carve in some of your favorite outdoorsy words or phrases. You can do something as simple as, “Travel,” “Explore,” or “Bon voyage.”
Let your mind race with all the possibilities. If you’re a bit intimidated by jumping into carving without direction, make sure you find a stencil that you can adapt to your desired design. Have a blast creating your pumpkin masterpiece!

Why Campfires Make Life Better

Plan a weekend trip and get on the road because the weather is almost perfect. Nicer weather can only mean one thing: It’s campin’ time! But camping could mean different things to different people; to us, it means campfires. And what’s a better way to celebrate cooler weather than with a camping trip? Here’s why campfires make life better.
Things to Eat
S’mores, smoked pigs in a blanket, roasted caramel apples, quesadillas, and cinnamon rolls on a stick—campfire food ideas are endless. Campfire food is one of the best parts of the trip, especially if you get creative with your campmates and plan out your meals in advance, so you’re not just picking up random snacks. Chips and canned soup can be great but there’s nothing like taking along a cupcake tin and layering bread, egg, and bacon. Cooking over the campfire in nature, there’s just nothing else like it. Our mouths are already watering at the thought. Don’t forget a coffee press for the mornin’!
Things to Do
Campfire games and songs are another unforgettable aspect of camping. Two truths and a lie, truth or dare, and telephone are all perfect games for sitting by the campfire. If you’ve brought along the kids, chubby bunny and group storytelling can bring about some laughs. Songs like, “Home On The Range,” “This Land is Your Land,” and “Swing Low, Sweet Chariot” are some of our favorite campfire songs. There are a lot of games and songs to choose from, but ask everyone to bring ideas so you get a good mix and can choose best ones as a group.
Things to Learn
Staring up at the sky, observing the stars and the clouds go hand in hand with campfires. That’s the time to tap into your astronomy knowledge and point out all of the constellations. The big dipper, the little dipper, and the twin sisters are popular ones to search for. Hopefully there are trees lightly swaying in the wind to enhance the atmosphere of your campfire.
Lounging around and bonding with the family and/or friends is one of our favorite things to do. What are your reasons for loving a good campfire?

How To Play Safe During Hunting Season

Get Certified
If you haven’t already, it’s a good idea (and usually required by law) to get certified through your state’s hunter safety program. Most states require it if you are under a certain age. Online courses can also be taken through the International Hunter Education Association.
5 Essentials
Like any backcountry trip, follow a standard protocol including:
1.Check the weather. Fall weather can be finicky and flip on a dime.
2.Leave your itinerary. Tell someone where you are going and when you will be back.
3.Carry enough food and water. You will likely be out many hours.
4.Bring a first-aid kit, map, and compass. Getting lost in the woods is a real risk when hunting.
5.Bring dry clothes. Hunting can be wet business, and hypothermia is a very real threat.
Golden Rules of Gun Safety: T.A.B +1
These are taught in hunter’s safety courses nationwide, but it’s always good to refresh the rules of gun safety before heading afield. For the four primary rules, remember “T.A.B.+1”
1. Treat every firearm as if it were loaded.
2. Always keep the muzzle in a safe direction.
3. Be sure of your target and what is beyond.
4. +1 Keep your finger outside the trigger guard until ready to shoot.
And remember the rest of the “10 Commandments of Gun Safety.”
5. Check your barrel for obstructions and use proper ammunition.
6. Unload firearm when not in use.
7. Never point a firearm at anything you do not intend to destroy.
8. Don’t run, jump, or climb with a loaded firearm.
9. Store firearms and ammunition separately and safely.
10. Don’t drink alcohol before or during shooting.
Whether you hunt the woods to fill your freezer or hike peaks to enjoy the fall color, fall is a popular time to be outdoors. These basic guidelines help all users share the forests, mountains, and meadows safely and enjoyably.
