When people think of “winter camping,” they immediately envision camping in a tent, wrapped up in a mummy sleeping bag, and the very act of going to the washroom seems like an Olympic feat!
While you could opt for a tent, there are plenty of other ways to enjoy winter camping that are a bit less... extreme!
For example, if you own a recreational vehicle, you can use it during the winter season by taking just a few precautions. Of course, you won’t be able to use the RV’s water or toilet during your trips, because the plumbing will have been winterized for obvious reasons. Likewise, your heating system should be adapted for cold temperatures (make sure to follow the basic safety rules!). Lastly, make sure your RV has an exhaust vent and air exchange to prevent too much condensation from forming inside your vehicle.
There are lots of great ways to camp comfortably during the winter season. Be it camping in a hut during a snowshoeing excursion, or camping in the turnkey chalets that are offered in numerous campgrounds or parks, winter camping can take many different forms, depending on what you need.
