Ray Splashway’s DIY Camping Tips

Whether you’re camping in a tent, an RV, or even one of Splashway’s cabins or cozy cottages, these genius camping hacks are sure to make your camping experience even more enjoyable!
  1. Freeze gallon water jugs to use in coolers instead of bagged ice. You can always use them as drinking water later!
  1. Store grocery bags in a Lysol wipes container. You can even wrap the outside in scrapbook paper for decorative appeal.
  1. Use a shoe organizer for cooking items. This will keep all your items off the ground and organized for easy retrieval!  Simply hang it on the side of a pop-up tent or anything similar.
  1. Use foam floor tiles for a softer tent floor. 
  1. Store toilet paper in a coffee can. Simply cut a slit in the side to feed the toilet paper through!
  1. Store Q-tips in an empty pill bottle.
  1. Bring shower caps to store dirty shoes. These shower caps are inexpensive and can be found at your nearest grocery or cosmetic store. Especially handy for shower flip-flops, this hack will keep your dirty or muddy shoes from touching other items when packing.
  1. Place charcoal briquettes in a cardboard egg carton for an easy fire-starter! 
  1. Use empty tic-tac containers for storing small items: matches, bobby pins, pills, the options are endless! (When storing matches, glue sandpaper to the top of the container to use when lighting!)
