Try to pack as light as possible, but make sure you have the essentials.

3. Know the Weather

Check the weather forecast before you go camping in order to make sure you are prepared for the conditions.

7. Bring a Stove

Bring a lightweight camping stove and fuel to heat food and beverages instead of relying solely on a campfire. Finding dry firewood in the winter can be extremely difficult.

9. Stay Hydrated

Make sure to drink plenty of water, as your body needs it even more in cold weather. Melting snow isn't ideal and takes a lot of time. Try to camp near a running stream if possible.
