Wet Weather Camping Tips

  • A tent that pitches flysheet first has a couple of advantages. It means the inner doesn’t get wet and you can get out of the rain quickly by diving under the just the flysheet to get sorted and cook or even enjoy a lunch break out of the rain.
  • Sodden ground won’t hold tent pegs as securely as dry; when tightening guylines, double check pegs.
  • Side guylines not only add stability but also help to keep condensation on the inside of the flysheet from wetting the inner.
  • Don’t be tempted to cook inside the tent with door closed – it’s not worth the high risk of fire and carbon monoxide poisoning.
  • Keep wet gear out of the inner tent.
  • Pack a little sponge. It weighs next to nothing and will make short work of mopping up water inside the tent.
  • Think ahead and try not to keep popping in and out of the tent.
  • Avoid likely run-off areas from waterlogged ground higher up.
