Most of the people will not consider winter camping except the camping enthusiast, the cold weather will stop most people from experiencing the wilderness. Most of the camping grounds or hiking trails require more professional gears for winter camping.
Thermal winter tents, warmer and lighter clothing, isolated water bottle and water filters, gloves, wool hats, less camping accompanies, extra food and stoves as it will takes you more energy to resist cold weather and the stoves or canister may stop working as the temperature slumps, these are some of the obstacles you need to overcome during winter camping.
For those who want to go camping in winter, these are some persuasive things maybe the key motivations to stimulate winter camping.
It’s unusual to hear utter silence, you should really try it during winter camping if you have never gone through any of that, very impressive. All the wildlife won’t make any noise then except sounds from the leaves of the trees and other stuff blow by gales in winter. Animals and insects will shut their mouth and save most energy to resist coldness and it’s not easy for them to find nutrition in cold winters.
Usually, the firewood is limited and campsites are having too much blowing winds, but cost you more money to lodge in the park and campsite in summer camping.
Instead of limited campsites in summer camping, you can camp anywhere you want in winter camping. You can choose a low ground swamp to pitch your tent, and there is always sufficient dry wood to gather and will get well shelter on this swamp area, you will find no way to have such camp in summer.
You will find out that there is less people experiencing the wilderness in winter camping or hiking. As cold weather is not suitable for old people and kids to send nights in the wilderness, family camping is not appropriate in winter and early spring. Less crowded in the parks allow you to have more exposures to the wilderness and better campgrounds to choose with lower lodge in expanse.
Free of biting insects
Mosquito probably is the most annoying insects you are really want to get rid of. You don’t need to bring the mosquito repellent any more in winter camping. The most amount of insect you may come across maybe snow fleas, but they don’t bite. Kind of little things with dark blue springtail, jumping on snow ground on relative warm winter days. They look beautiful and funny as well.
Firewood and camping stoves
Campfire in winter camping is kind of indispensable stuff. You should figure out which type of natural firewood is good to start a campfire and keep it thrive and durable if you do not bring any camping stoves. Conifer branches(evergreens) such as cedar, pine and balsam is much easier to start fire quickly, as they contain high resin content and have loose wood fiber. But if need to keep the chill out, those dense deciduous trees, like dried maple, oak or iron wood is good options.
