What to Wear & What not to Wear for Camping

When going on a weekend camp you are surrounded by dirt, bugs and unfiltered elements. Therefore, you should focus on what to wear and what not to wear clothes when you are camping. Clothing protects your skin from sunburn and hungry bugs alike.

When you are going to camp, you need to think about both functionally and practically.

What to wear

Your camp clothing

Your camp clothingWhen you are setting up your tent or doing the necessary tasks to create a cozy home base, the clothing you are wearing should be suitable for you. Don’t forget that you are dressed in the wilderness on your way to camp.

It’s not a bad idea to dress in long pants and short sleeves.

Bedtime when you camping

No matter what kind of clothing you wear to bed while sleeping. But just make sure it’s not wet. Wear something clean and comfortable. Damp insulation is an inefficient insulation. Keep your sleepwear simple.

Wear a beanie or cap to keep the head warm at night.

Plan your full-day first

Plan clearly what kind of clothes to wear throughout the day at camping and beyond. Adjust your clothes according to the outside temperature, your body temperature, and the weather change.

Generally, start with clean underwear, jeans, a T-shirt, and a light sweater.

Two big things to remember

  1. Always stay dry before bedtime. Take off every layer.
  2. Long sleeves and pants are about more than staying warm.

Protect yourself

Protect yourselfIn the wilderness, there may be various dangerous and disease-carrying pests, such as mosquitoes, bugs, and ticks. So wear socks and shoes to cover your hands and feet. Sun protection is also an important part of an outdoor outfit.

Wear sleeves, pants and a cap to protect your skin from the heat.

What not to wear


Socks with sandals

Sandals are best for legs on hot days. Whereas socks are best to keep the feet comfortable. But the two don’t mix.

Poorly fitting swimwear

It is available to men and women in all shapes and sizes. You should not wear anything like this on a campground, even if you are skinny, rotund or otherwise. Similarly, do not wear clothing when you are camping drugs, or alcohol pictures, and logos.


Yes, it happens, and fairly often. It is a campground. You are in the great outdoors. You don’t live in the middle of the woods alone. So you shouldn’t be.


Too much

At the same time, you don’t need to wear anything too much. Doing so can affect you in many ways. Take into account where you are going and what you are doing.

They provide 1/2 inch rubber or cork, to protect your feet from bugs, thorns or the ground. These can easily break, or get lost. Not conducive to camping.[/box]

Next time someone invites you to camp, say yes. The air is clean and the view around you is picturesque!
