Can I wear jeans camping?
Around the camp site clothes For the most part, you can wear any type of shorts or jeans around the camp. Just be sure if you wear jeans that you will not get too hot. As for tops, a t-shirt will usually be just fine, but you could even wear a light weight long sleeve shirt if the weather isn’t too hot.
What kind of shoes will you bring in camping?
Hiking boots are the best option, however if you don’t have a pair of these you don’t need to run to the nearest outdoors store. A solid pair of running shoes that you can lace up will do. Shoes that cannot be laced up such as moccasins, Birkenstocks, or slip-ons are not good options.
Do I have to put a tarp under my tent?
You do not have to have a tarp under your tent but it is highly recommended. Having a tarp under your tent can prevent holes and tear from appearing on the bottom of the tent as well as prevent moisture from the ground from soaking into your tent.
What should you not keep in a tent?
Keep all your supplies, including toothpaste and deodorant, away from your tent because anything with a smell can attract bears [source: NPS]. Don’t sleep in clothes you have eaten in or cooked with. Hang these clothes in plastic bags away from your tent together with the other supplies [source: Sanders].
What to wear to sleep while camping?
Wear dry clothing. A good sleepwear choice while camping is clean long underwear, top and bottoms, plus clean socks. Avoid overdressing before you hop into your bag. Wearing bulky clothing inside a bag can actually reduce the bag’s ability to efficiently trap body heat.
