5 Beginner Tips For Camping Without Electricity

Be Preparedyoung man doing solo camp-Camping Without Electricity

The key to achieving any successful trip is to come prepared. This is even more important if you’re planning to camp traditionally. Make sure you research your chosen campsite. You know there’s no electricity, but is there a source of water? Where’s the nearest place you can ask for help in case of emergencies?

Also, make sure you pack right to cover everything – all the things you’re going to need for sleeping, cooking, eating, bathing, and entertainment. It would be helpful if you make a checklist and use it while packing.

Plan Your Mealscamping food, cooking for solo dining in camping trip-Camping Without Electricity

Plan your meals and keep everything simple. Consider the lack of power so you’ll be cooking over a campfire, a grill, or an electric stove, depending on what you prefer. Plan your food per day throughout your trip and go for recipes that are easy to cook. If possible, do most of the preparation at home. Pack your cooler right and be sure that you cook perishables first.

If you plan to cook over a fire, be sure you have everything needed to create one.

Bring Drinking Waterbeautiful woman taking water from forest spring on hiking trip-Camping Without Electricity

In the backcountry, when there’s no electricity, there’s usually no source of drinking water, too. It’s important to check if your chosen site has a water source. If there is, it’s usually fine for bathing and washing dishes, but not for drinking.

Bring clean drinking water that will last throughout your entire trip. You can bring water in gallons or smaller individual bottles.

Bring a Source Of LightSolar cell tent flashlight against pine forest background. a flashlight to light a tent when camping-Camping Without Electricity

You’ll need a source of light to move around the campsite, especially at night. You can light a campfire, but you can’t move it around or bring it inside your tent. Be sure to bring a flashlight, a lantern, some candles, and some extra batteries.

Keep WarmWoman with blanket wrapped around wearing winter cap looking away during camping-Camping Without Electricity

Camping without electricity gets easier over time – just follow these simple but effective tips!
