- Find a flat spot to pitch your tent.
- Set up your tent away from the cooking area.
- Keep headlamps or lanterns in your tent and in your cooking area.
- Don’t leave food or toiletries in the car in bear country.
How thick should a tarp be under a tent?
Your tarp should be 2-3 inches smaller than the outside dimensions of your tent. This will help prevent pooling. Clean up the area where you will be setting up the tent. You want to remove all the branches and sharp rocks.
How do you keep water from pooling under a tent?
Always use a large ground tarp under the tent as a barrier to moisture seepage from the ground – even if your tent is waterproof. Ideally, you should own a tent which includes a waterproof rain shield or large rain fly. If not, then you will need to hang tarps with ropes attached to trees or poles.
How do I keep my tent waterproof?
There are three ways to waterproof your tent:
- Seal the seams: Applying seam sealer can help keep moisture from seeping through.
- Refresh the urethane coating: The urethane coatings on the inside of your rainfly and the floor of your tent are the primary barriers against moisture.
