Despite preparing in advance for everything that could happen while camping, you’ve likely missed a thing or two. After all, unexpected events catch us off-guard because they don’t happen commonly. Even if you’re new to camping, you can read other people’s accounts of what has happened while they were away from home and ready yourself that way.

Here are some of your biggest camping problems solved in seconds.

Problem #1: You forgot to buy ice and now your cooler has spoiled.

The first thing you’ll want to do is to dispose of the rotten food. Next, you’ll want to clean and disinfect the cooler with warm soapy water, allowing it to dry completely in the sun before refilling it. After you know it’s no longer wet, visit the General Store for provisions and ice so you can keep food back at camp with ease.

Problem #2: You didn’t pack enough clothes for everyone to wear throughout your entire stay at the campgrounds.

Luckily for you, there is a laundry room complete with detergent at the campgrounds. You can throw a load into the washer, do some things around camp, and then place the items in the dryer. You’ll keep your family in clean clothes no matter how few of things you originally packed.

Problem #3: The kids are restless and you’ve run out things for them to do around camp.

Camping is an adventure with new things to discover around every corner. If the kids are complaining because they’re bored, it’s time to get them out of their comfort zone. Find an activity they’ve never tried before and do it as a family.
