Funny Camping Stories

Any experienced camper can tell a few hilariously funny camping stories about their adventures or misadventures in the backcountry. Camping happens to be one of those times where funny things are just waiting to happen.

When you read funny stories about camping, you discover that you are not alone in your trials and tribulations! Camping is fun but it is also a lot different than being at home or in a nice posh hotel. You have to deal with the weather, bugs, wild animals, sleeping on the ground, and people you do not know camping in close proximity to you. Reading what others have experienced while camping can make you feel better (or maybe worse!) about what you have personally been through. Plus, who doesn't want to have a good laugh?

Murphy's Law is always in effect on a camping trip - what CAN go wrong more than likely WILL go wrong. I think this is especially true when you're camping because you're out of your element. Nearly everyone has stories about the raccoon that snuck into their campsite, opened the cooler, and ate a week's worth of groceries the first night of their week long trip. Or about bringing uncomfortable strappy sandals to hike because they wanted to look cute.

Reading camping stories helps people to laugh at themselves because they sit and think about things that they have done that at the time they thought wasn't so funny. It helps campers to avoid situations and circumstances because they can learn from the stories of other campers and hopefully avoid doing the same thing.

Funny stories about camping are enjoyable for campers because they can relate to the experiences shared by other campers. Practically everyone who has ever camped has a funny story to tell around the campfire. When people leave the comfort of their own homes to find their vacation in nature, they have to resort to basic human instincts. The camping events can make very funny stories for friends and family when the camping experience is over.
