Travel Tips

Just because it’s winter, it doesn’t mean you can’t still enjoy camping with the family. When planning a cold-weather camping trip, make sure to bring along these products for a safe and warm experience.


Sleeping Pads

Bringing a sleeping bag is a no-brainer, but for extra warmth and comfort, invest in a sleeping pad. The pads offer extra insulation from the ground. They come in a variety of shapes, sizes and prices for different budgets. Try one of these options from REI.


Camping Stove

Purchase a portable camping stove so you can enjoy a hot meal during your camping trip. Coleman offers a variety of stoves available in different sizes.


Waterproof Clothing

Prepare for rain or snow with waterproof clothing, particularly jackets and boots. Gore-Tex is known for its high-quality waterproof products, including outerwear, footwear, gloves and other accessories.


Hand/Feet Warmers

For some added warmth, use hand and feet warmer packs. These provide instant heat for cold-weather activities. L.L. Bean offers a set containing both hand and feet warmers.



Make sure you pack plenty of layers you can add or shed, depending on the temperature. Opt for a base layer on top and bottom, made with moisture-wicking material. Bring extra of whatever you pack.
