Camping Survival Tips

Camping Survival Tips

Whether you are enjoying a spot of wild camping or you have booked a few nights at an organised campsite, you will find our list of camping survival tips invaluable.

1. Repel ticks.

Mix 40 drops of tea tree oil with roughly 16oz of water and spray it on exposed areas to repel those nasty little critters.

2. Light a fire.

Not only are tortilla chips a delicious snack, they also make fantastic firelighters!


3. Freeze bottled water.

Freeze bottles of water before you leave home to keep food fresh for much longer. When they have melted you have perfectly good drinking water.

4. Be careful where you pitch your tent.

Check the wind direction before you set up your tent. If you pitch it downwind from your campfire, everything, including yourself will smell of smoke.


5. Light up your life.

It is a good idea to purchase a wind-up torch prior to your trip. This ensures you have light even if your batteries run out. Always remember, never underestimate how quickly it will get dark in the great outdoors.

6. Blow your own whistle.

Make sure you always carry a whistle with you wherever you go. If you are unfortunate enough to injure yourself whilst out exploring, blowing a whistle can alert nearby campers or walkers of your whereabouts and help can be arranged for you.


7. Freshen up.

Wet wipes or face wipes are ideal for a quick freshen up. Always make sure you dispose of them properly, even if this means you have to carry them with you.

8. Pack a rope.

Rope can be used for so many things whilst camping. Tying a length between trees makes a perfect temporary washing line to dry damp clothes on.


Camping is great fun and is the perfect way to bond with family or friends. If you are looking for inspiration on where to stay, take a look at our website www.camping-directory.uk. Whether you are looking for a coastal or countryside location you will find the perfect campsite to suit your needs.

Choose a spot to pitch your tent among the trees. Each pitch can accommodate one tent and up to five people. We usually only have five pitch spots available to book, but if we're fully booked online or your group is slightly larger than five we may sometimes be able to help so please do give us a call or drop us an email.
