10 Tips

To keep warm when camping in winter

NSW Crown Holiday Parks Trust share their top 10 tips to keep warm when camping in winter.

From elevating the humble winter beanie to debunking myths about how to stay warm in a sleeping bag; more than 60 managers from 36 NSW Crown Trust Holiday Parks from coastal and country NSW have pulled together their collective knowledge to ensure families have a fun Winter caravanning or camping adventure.

The tips, which range from sensible clothing advice to fun ways to keep warm like snuggling your loved ones around a camp fire come from the NSW Crown Holiday Parks Trust (NSWCHPT) Group which manages 36 holiday parks across NSW and encompass North Coast Holiday Parks (NCHP), South Coast Holiday Parks (SCHP) and Inland Waters Holiday Parks (IWHP).

Top tips for camping in winter

1. The humble beanie is a good move as it prevents lots of heat loss

2. The ugg boot, (or equivalent), should be on any serious Glamperís winter check list

3. Thermals are also an option if youíre too far away from a warm house

4. Select a good quality sleeping bag.

5. Why not prepare some yummy stews, soups and hearty foods prior to arriving; they will certainly keep you fuelled with warmth and energised to play

6. Make sure you air your tent daily to prevent condensation build up which makes the inside damp and uncomfortable

7. When the ground is cold; use foam floor tiles on the tent floor to give an extra layer of insulation

8. Donít camp in a valley or watercourse and position your tent to take full advantage of the warming morning sun

9. Wear a beanie to bed and keep your head out of your sleeping bag as a night of breathing may cause your sleeping bag to become damp

10. Put glow sticks in water bottles for a game of night time bowling or place them around a tentís guy ropes to prevent trip hazards
