1. Make Your Tent a Cozy Place

Transform your campsite into a romantic destination. This begins with making sure that your tent is as pleasant and warm as can be.

Look for a big camping tent so that there'll be enough room for the two of you. You may also invest in a glamping tent if you're in the mood for some luxurious tent living.

Of course, don't forget the bedding, blankets, and pillows so you can both sleep soundly.

2. Use String Lights

After setting up your tent, it's time to decorate it with some lovey-dovey accessories, such as string lights. These will help set a romantic mood, even if you're out in the wild. They're also useful, especially if the natural light coming from the moon is too dim.

Choose string lights with the following features:

  • emitting a romantic and dreamy glow
  • can be easily put up on tree branches or in your tent
  • solar- or battery-powered, so you don't have to look for electricity in the middle of nowhere

3. Build a Campfire

What's more romantic than cuddling by the fire? You may even get to know your loved one more as you sit around this campfire and have an intimate conversation.

However, survivalists: take note that this isn't the time to impress your date with your fire-starting skills! Remember that your goal for this Valentines Day camping is to make a campfire quickly and easily so you can go back to snuggling your partner as soon as possible.

To help you out in building a fire, you may use the following:

  • solo stove
  • fire starter sticks or logs
  • pre-cut firewood

4. Play Slow and Calm Music

Play some relaxing music to set a loving and soothing ambiance. You may listen to your date's favorite tunes as you dance slowly by the fire and under the stars.

There's also nothing more romantic than playing the guitar and dedicating a song to your partner!

If your darling likes water-based activities, then give them an inflatable kayak set! This watercraft can let you conquer mild rivers and lakes.

Choose a kayak that can hold two people and comes with high output air pump and aluminum oars. Also, make sure that it's inflatable so it won't take up too much space in your camping bag.

6. Fitness Tracker

Is your date health-conscious? Do they always monitor their physical activity? Then a fitness tracker is for them!

This tool can keep track of the intensity of their exercises, the distance they've walked, the time they've been active, and the floors they've climbed. This gadget can be helpful, especially if you're a couple who loves hiking, trekking, or mountain climbing.

Search for a camping destination in the US that's situated in a quiet, remote, and picturesque spot. As much as possible, avoid big crowds to make the whole experience intimate.

  • Big Lagoon State Park, Florida
  • Doris Campground, Wichita Mountains, Oklahoma
