Here’s What You Need For A Backyard Camping Trip

If you and your family have the urge to go camping this Fall but don’t want to go traveling to the woods for your fun, the good news is that you can have just as if not more fun by choosing to camp in your own backyard. But to do this type of camping trip justice, you’ll need to have a few things to make the time fun, comfortable, and memorable for all the right reasons. To get started off on the right foot, here are five must-have items for your camping experience.

A Screened-In Patio

When you decide to do backyard camping, it doesn’t have to mean you are roughing it as you would out in the woods. Instead, you should look at the experience as “glamping” rather than camping, meaning the emphasis should be on having fun, telling stories, eating plenty of smores, and much more. To do so, you can camp not under a tent pitched in the grass, but instead on your screened-in patio once you install Rollac ZipShades. Easily controlled by remote control or an app on your smartphone, ZipShades can block out wind, UV rays, and those pesky insects that always seem determined to ruin your outdoor time with family and friends. 

Backyard Fire Pit

An easy and safe way to sit around a campfire, having a backyard fire pit will instantly make you feel as if you are indeed out in the wilderness. Available in large or small sizes and a never-ending array of styles, your backyard fire pit will make camping in your backyard more fun than you expected. After all, on a cool Fall night, sitting around eating some smores, drinking some hot chocolate, and hearing a scary ghost story or two will create memories that are sure to last a lifetime.

Camping Made Easy with a Retractable Awning

When you are “glamping” in your backyard, it can be made much easier and luxurious if you are doing so under the comfort of a Rollac retractable awning. Since your awning can be retracted at night once the sun goes down, you and your family can lie back and spend quality time together gazing at the stars once the toasted marshmallows are long gone. But during the day when a little more shade would be appreciated, you can have a gorgeous retractable awning overhead, making your camping area as much as 20 degrees cooler. Like the ZipShades, your retractable awning can be controlled by the push of a button or a tap on an app, meaning you won’t have to leave your favorite chair to get the comfort you desire.

Bring Plenty of Backyard Games

While toasting marshmallows, eating smores, and telling ghost stories are great ways to pass the time on a backyard camping trip, that still leaves plenty of time for lots of other fun things. To bring out everyone’s competitiveness while still having plenty of laughs, bring along plenty of backyard games on your camping trip. One of the most popular games today is cornhole, which you can buy online or at a local store for a very affordable price. Other popular games include croquet, badminton, volleyball, or just tossing a frisbee back and forth around the backyard. Whatever games you play, having fun will always be part of the deal.

Go for True “Glamping”

If you really want to go all-out to turn your backyard camping trip into a backyard “glamping” trip, then you’ll want to seriously consider the many benefits of a Rollac Camargue. Should you add this unique outdoor structure to your home’s patio, it may often feel as if you and the kids have never left the comforts of your living room. Constructed of high-quality materials, your Camargue will feature rolling shutters that can cover openings to prevent UV rays from entering. Available in many styles that can complement the older or newer architecture, adding a Camargue to your patio will guarantee your family and probably a few of your neighbors will want to make this “glamping” under your Camargue a regular occurrence.
