March is Here & Everyone is Thinking Camping!

Have you planned your 2018 camping excursion yet? We have compiled a few fun camping tips for you to try this year.


Sage – Natural Mosquito Repellent

Did you know mosquitos dislike sage?! Next time you are planning your grocery list add fresh sage. When those irksome mosquitos try to ruin your s’more time around the campfire throw a bunch of fresh sage into the fire and watch them disappear!


Rosemary Coals

Love cooking over an open grill? Create a smoky, savory flavor by using fresh rosemary sprigs over ashy coals the next time you grill meat and vegetables.  Be sure to make extra, your family and friends will be asking for seconds!


Removable Suction Cups

These handy little things should be in every campers supply box! Ever come back from the lake or pool and never know what to do with those sopping towels and bathing suits?  Suction cups to the rescue!  Mount these little rescuers on your RV shower wall or even on the outside of your RV and voila!


Glow Sticks & Headlamps

Camping with kids or pets? Glow sticks are a great to keep track of them in the dark.  Glow sticks are inexpensive and can be found at almost any dollar or craft store these days. They come in a variety of fun shapes and sizes. You can even throw them in water bottles and create a fun game of nighttime bowling!

Alternatively, headlamps are inexpensive and worth the cost for everyone to have their own for night time. Fun Use: Headlamps can also be used to wrap around a water filled jug to create a night light inside tents or on a picnic table


Clean Clothes – Dirty Clothes

Avoid sorting through bins and suitcases while camping by investing in hanging clothes organizers. Unpack all clothes into the hanging organizers and as clothes get dirty just use the bins as a dirty laundry hamper! All the clothes in the bins go straight to the laundry room when you get home. No fuss no muss!
