Does your camping gear tend to spend the winter packed away? Many people go on vacation in the summertime, but cold weather shouldn’t prevent you from doing the things you love. There are many joys to winter camping you shouldn’t miss. Whether you’re a cold-weather junkie or you just want to mix things up this year, check out these three reasons to go on a winter camping trip.
A Cozy Winter Wonderland
If you want to truly enjoy the winter weather, why not immerse yourself in it? Picture frost-touched trees, frozen rivers and lakes, and the serenity of a landscape blanketed in fresh snow. When you’re done exploring the wintry world, you can come back and curl up by a toasty, crackling fire. Of course, you’ll need to know a few things about how to stay warm when camping in the cold. With the right knowledge and equipment, winter camping can help you experience the season to the fullest.
A Social Distancing Vacation
We all know 2020 has been nothing like what we expected. After such a tumultuous year, you deserve to get away for a while. Many travel options simply aren’t safe or responsible right now, but camping can be the vacation you need this season. You’ll be able to get out of the house and enjoy some fresh air. Staying outdoors at your own private campsite means you can practice social distancing throughout the trip, keeping yourself and others safe and healthy the entire time.
Cheaper (and Quieter) off-Season Campgrounds
Did you know that many campgrounds give off-season discounts? Most people aren’t pitching tents through the winter, which means you’ll have an easier time booking your ideal campsite, and you might score a great deal. If that’s not one of the best reasons to go on a winter camping trip this year, what is? In addition to a better booking experience, you can enjoy more elbow room and a quieter landscape as you have more of the park to yourself. It could be the perfect opportunity to unwind and enjoy the great outdoors this season.
