Best Tent Camping – 3 Must –Haves for Your Tent When Camping

Tent camping is a very inexpensive way to go camping. And these days everyone is looking for ways to save money. But there are many ways to make your tent more comfortable while camping. Below are the three things you must have for your tent.

1. Tarp – It is recommended that you lay a large tarp down underneath your tent. This will help protect your tent from small rocks and twigs on the ground and keep it cleaner on the bottom. The tarp will also act as a moisture barrier. Make sure the tarp is large enough to have two to three feet of tarp extended out on the ground in front of your tent door. This is a great place to have campers take off their shoes before entering the tent.

2. Air Mattress – An air mattress will give you the most comfortable night sleep in a tent. It will give you extra padding between you and the ground. An air mattress is warmer than sleeping on a camping cot because there is no air underneath you like when on a cot. You can purchase a hand pump or a pump that you can plug into your vehicles cigarette lighter.

3. Battery Powered Lantern – You can bring some light into your tent at night or in the early morning hours with a battery powered lantern. This is a safe way to provide light for your campers without having a fire hazard.

So, as you can see, having a tarp under your tent and an air mattress and battery powered lantern in your tent will make your next camping trip much more comfortable.

not so sure about the mattress but having a battery lantern is the best thing ever and it comes in handy when the power goes out.
