5 Reasons To Go Camping This Winter

Winter is nearly here and for most people camping is the last thing on their mind. Camping equipment gets packed away until spring and it’s time to hibernate, but there are many reasons why you should consider camping this winter.

As long as you keep yourself warm and comfortable, you too will see that camping in winter is the best!

Campfires

Ahhhh campfires, the number one reason I love to camp in winter. In summer fire restrictions are in place in many places, so you can’t enjoy campfires.

There’s nothing better than sitting around the campfire with friends drinking, telling stories and keeping warm. Plus campfire cooking is delicious and you can’t forget about how good it is to toast marshmallows!

Avoid the crowds

If you are camping in the southern part of Australia where it’s cold in winter, you will have less people to compete for the best campsites.  With fewer people around you will absolutely appreciate the silence and the world seems to slow down even more.

Fewer Insects

Insects, like flies and mosquitoes are often the reason people don’t like camping but in cold weather insects stay away keeping your camping trip bug free.

Cooler in tent or camper trailer

The summer heat in Australia can be harsh making camping unbearable at times, so winter camping can be a blessing. It’s much easier to keep yourself warm in the cold weather than trying to cool down in the heat. Here’s some excellent tips on keeping warm if you choose to camp this winter > Camping in Comfort

Hard floor camper trailers are also an excellent way to keep you off the ground and you’ll find them warmer than tents.

Kick those winter blues

Winter and the lack of sunlight can affect people’s moods, but camping and the outdoors can help you kick those winter blues. Natural light and exercise stimulates the production of serotonin, the hormone that affects your mood. You spend most of your time outdoors when camping and generally are more active, making camping the perfect solution.

If you’ve chosen to brave the cold for the first time do your research and be well prepared and we are sure you will love it just as much as us.
