Camping When It's Cold Out

Snowy.tent Ahh, winter. It's dark, cold, wet, and miserable outside -- the perfect time to go camping!

This might sound counterintuitive if you're primarily a summer camper, but cold-weather camping has its own brand of invigorating magic. State and national parks are less crowded and more peaceful. Hiking trails are yours alone. If the idea of a leaky tent doesn't sound like paradise, know that some park campgrounds have yurts and cabins that can make chilly temperatures a bit more tolerable.

For more about cold-weather camping, check out tips here, here, and here. Remember that hypothermia and frostbite are real dangers, so make sure to read up on safety information too.

Tell us: Are you a fan of winter camping? Where do you like to camp when the temperature drops?
