Valentines Day Camping | Decor Ideas
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!

5. Tandem Inflatable Kayak
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.
Is your camping mate a bit directionally-challenged? Do they usually get confused with directions? Do they have difficulty retracing a path? Then a portable GPS can help them navigate to their destination.
Pro Tip: Get a device that your significant other can mount on their RV so you won't get lost in your next expedition!
Valentines Day Camping | Meal Ideas
8. Heart-Shaped French Toast
This recipe is quick to prepare. Plus, its shape is perfect for the holiday! You may also incorporate a more reddish color into the heart-shaped bread to fit the occasion.
Fry the bread in butter over your campfire. Add some cocoa powder and cinnamon to enhance the flavor of the toast. Then, top with cream cheese glaze for a yummy treat!
9. Dutch Oven Enchiladas
Bring a Dutch oven to your Valentines Day camping to pull off these enchiladas. But don't worry if you're a beginner in campfire cooking, as these are simple to cook. They can be done in less than 30 minutes.
They're also veggie-friendly, which is perfect if your lover doesn't eat meat.

10. Pick a Secluded Campsite
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.
Additionally, consider a location that's near a body of water, as the sound of waves crashing the shore can have a calming, soothing effect.
To give you an idea, you may want to take a look at the following campgrounds:
- El Cosmico, Texas
- Kalaloch Campground, Olympic National Park, Washington
- Big Lagoon State Park, Florida
- Doris Campground, Wichita Mountains, Oklahoma
- Refugio State Beach, California
- Patrick's Point State Park, California
- Hunting Island, South Carolina
11. Do Romantic Couple Camping Activities
If you're spontaneous and prefer having no itinerary, you can just simply explore the natural wonders in the area.
Here are some activities you can do together:
- Catch the sunset.
- Take a hike.
- See the stars.
Pro Tip: Pack some binoculars and telescopes so you can have a good look at distant views and look closely at the stars.
Valentines Day camping can be a delightful way to celebrate the heart's day with your prepper sweetheart. It'll let you express your gratitude for and rekindle your relationship with your mate in the great outdoors.
So skip those hotel rooms, dinner reservations, and fancy cocktails! Make this Valentine's Day a romantic getaway instead.
