How to sleep well during camping
You can come up with smart ways to still have a good night’s sleep during camping and here are the following tips: upgrade your bedding by choosing comfortable camping beds which are available on the market; pitch your tent on a flat ground surface or look for a spot with few rocks and on softer ground with more grasses or remove large rocks from your tent pad; bring herbal tea, like chamomile to help relax your mind and body; check your tent for holes on the entry screen and patch them up, so mosquitoes do not enter and bother you during sleep time and use lavender lotion on your arms and legs to keep the bugs away.
An appropriate tent size
Having the right tent size is ensuring an enjoyable camping trip that is not cramped, hot and uncomfortable, therefore, here are things to consider in looking for the right tent size: take time to visit a camping shop and try to go inside the tent display to check on its space and size for a specific number of occupants for them to be comfortable inside the tent; check if the tent consists of a double wall in order to get enough ventilation and air circulation with either a partial or full mesh exterior and separate rain fly for weather protection; buy quality tent so it can last longer and do not easily leak and break.
