We half expect the summer to always be warm but it can surprise us and either get very warm or quite cool for a day or two at a time. Also, the early mornings and late evenings can be chili at times as well. Unpredictability is something you can plan on and pack for when you’re getting ready to go camping.
Regardless of what may be in the weather forecast for your next camping trip, it is always going to be best that you are fully prepared. The weather an always change quickly, so you never want to be too cold or overheating. When you are able to plan for any scenario, you will be making sure you have a good time regardless of what comes your way.
In the warmer months, it can be very easy to forget about bringing cold weather clothing. Even when the days are expected to be hotter, it is not unheard of that the temperatures will drop anywhere from twenty to thirty degrees when the evening comes around. You should have a comfortable pair of long pants and a heavy hoodie with you so that you can easily enjoy being out by a fire without feeling like you have to get so close to stay warm. You could even want to bring along a hat just in case the temps really take a dive. Just remember that you will also need to leave the comfort of your tent if you have to go to the bathroom in the middle of the night.
You should also have the right rain gear with you to get through a storm, because nothing is worse than getting stuck in a rain storm and then having no way for you to stay dry. Having a poncho and a pair of rain boots with you will be great for keeping you comfortable if it rains when you are out in the wilderness.
Along with your selection of clothing for camping, you should also have a variety of t-shirts, pants, long sleeve shirts and shorts. These will all help to either keep you cool or protect you from any elements. When you are camping, you have the ability to experience all sorts of situations in just a few days. The more of a variety you have in your clothing options, the happier you will be when you are fully prepared.
