It’s been a long day of traveling, setting up camp, cooking, and cleaning. Now it is time to get some sleep. Sometimes getting a good nights rest while camping is tricky. Here are some tips to help!

* Did you know that there are different categories of sleeping bags? Make sure you have the appropriate sleeping bag for your camping trip. From personal experience, being too hot or too cold while trying to sleep is not fun.

* Check the weather forecast before you leave and pack your pajamas accordingly.

* Make sure all the food and garbage is secured before going to bed. Wild animals are skilled at finding food left out, and can keep you up with the noises of trying to get into the tent for a late night snack. Secured means inside your car, not the tent.

* Don’t forget to extinguish the campfire! Wildfires are no joking matter!

Don’t let sleepless nights ruin your camping experience!
