pop up camping tips and tricks

Camping is fun, but not if your tent does not work properly or your food does not stay in properly. A pop up tent is an excellent choice for any outdoor camping trip. They can be set up quickly with no mess and are lightweight. Here are some simple pop up camping tips and tricks that campers will find useful.


It is a good idea to choose a suitable campsite in a remote location where the tent can be left undisturbed all day. If it is in the middle of nowhere, a campsite at the foot of a mountainside or river is often good enough. Do not choose a campsite that is too close to a busy highway or major road. Otherwise, traffic fumes from passing vehicles can damage the tent and its furnishings.

When setting up the tent, use only screwdriver tools to unscrew bolts and tighten nuts. It is a good idea to assemble the tent on the ground and mark the spots for screws and stakes. If the tent has poles, assemble them first before putting up the pop up tent. The instructions that come with the tent should indicate how the poles are to be set up and fastened to the ground. A pop up tent is usually assembled on one end. It is a good idea to mark where the stakes will be positioned so that you do not have to dig holes in the ground to position them.

Food And Drinks

Before placing the poles into the ground, place food and drinks into the tent to ensure that they are within easy reach. If food and drinks are placed within easy reach, poppers will not work properly. The pop up tent is very easy to assemble. However, if the food or drinks are put too close to the edges of the tent, they may be overlapped by the fabric. This will make them difficult to remove later on. You should ensure that you store all food and drinks away from the tent. The fabric from which the tent is made can easily get into food and drink and can make them very hard to remove later on. Also, avoid hanging any dry foods or drinks from the tent. If you do so, your food will become overripe and the fabric will be damaged.


Another important tip to follow is to make sure that the tent is properly anchored into the ground. There are many different types of tents with different methods of securing them to the ground. It is imperative that you know what method the tent is going to use as this will determine the distance that it will stay inflated. If you are not familiar with the different methods then it is important that you ask someone who is as this can save you valuable time when trying to set up the tent and remove it once it is set up.

Wrapping Up

One last tip that you should follow when setting up your pop up tent is to ensure that you are using the correct weight for your tent. Although this sounds simple, there are many people who do not know the right weight for their tent and end up with the tent falling apart during a camping trip. You should ensure that the tent you use is appropriate for the amount of weight you will be placed on it. In other words, if you are placing an entire family on the tent it may be a good idea to use a lighter weight tent rather than one that is designed to hold a large number of people. If you follow these simple tips you should have an enjoyable camping trip.
