Tips to staying dry on a rainy camping weekend

  • Use a waterproof tent like the Kodiak tents, or if using a different brand of tent, be sure to place a tarp on top, secured with ropes or bungie cords.
  • Have a tent with an attached vestibule or awning, or bring a tarp with rope that you can attach to nearby trees to create a covered outdoor area
  • Be sure to set up your tent on high ground, or angled that the water will run away from your tent and not pool around it or underneath.
  • Use your steel ground stakes to keep your tent secured incase the wind picks up during a storm
  • Make sure your tent has waterproof floor material (like the Kodiak tents), or bring a separate waterproof ground sheet
  • Dry bags are your friend. Keeping your belongings in a quality dry bag will keep your gear dry and ready when you need it.

Waterproof tent VS using a Tarp

Certainly there are different options for staying dry, maybe you already have a tent that your parents gave you for a grad gift years ago, you just have to bring along a tarp to make sure you'll stay dry if it happens to rain. It really comes down to quality and convenience. Could you make due with an old pop up tent and a tarp? Sure you can, and you'd probably still have a great time. However if you are wanting an ultra secure, sturdy all season tent that you know will protect you in a storm and will last years to come? That is built specifically with sturdiness in mind, you'll probably want to invest in a more heavy duty tent like the Kodiak Canvas Tents.
