It looks like North Carolina is finally experiencing some winter weather and cooler temperatures. Don’t let the cold weather force you indoors, you can still enjoy the great outdoors and visit our campground. Here are some tips for helping to stay warm in your RV this winter season:

  • Install heavyweight thermal curtains throughout your RV to add extra insulation to your windows.
  • Use a mini indoor space heater to heat up the area, but only use it when you are present and awake.
  • Use RV skirting to keep your RV warm and to protect your RV’s plumbing and machinery.
  • Wrap your RV’s pipes in heat tape to keep them from freezing.
  • Keep antifreeze on hand when traveling during the winter.
  • Pack extra warm clothes and lots of blankets to keep warm and cozy while you travel and sleep.

Here are some tips to help you stay warm when camping in a tent:

  • Buy disposable heating packs (like Hot Hands) and place them inside your sleeping bag to make it warm and toasty.
  • Invest in a sleeping bag made for cold weather.
  • Place rugs on the tent’s floor for extra insulation and warmth.
  • Use a tent heater right before bed to warm up your tent, but turn it off before you fall asleep.
  • Avoid using air mattresses during cold weather, as they tend to trap cold air and will only make you feel colder.
  • Wear warm clothing to bed, including socks and a knit cap for your head.

The winter can be beautiful, but it can also be cold. Don’t let the cold weather scare you away from enjoying the great outdoors! Come visit us at River’s Edge Family Campground in Eastern NC this winter.
