Bring an extra large camping tub, fill it with water, and use it as a bathtub for little kids. Great idea! (source unknown)
4. Canopy Cover for Camping
Smart! A tent under a canopy. Additional space is used for living space.

DIY camping toilet – ha! Kind of smart though. A large bucket and a pool noodle…. Saving this idea!

9. Hang a fan in a canopy
I know that there are many safety issues surrounding this idea, but I couldn’t resist sharing. As long as it is very secure…. (source unknown)
10. Organized Camping!

Buy the Dollar Store bedding bags to keep towels, etc together, and keep camp dust off while camping. So smart!
A hanging closet organizer will keep your tent organized. A must have for kids!
A tent cot! This is what I need! It has amazing reviews, especially if you put an inflatable mattress inside of it. Now THAT is comfortable camping!
What a great idea!
A great way to collect trash during the daytime at the campsite!
