Kayak Camping Tips For A More Enjoyable Camping Experience!

Kayak camping is a fun and easy way to get into the great outdoors. You can enjoy all that nature has on offer with little weight being carried by you or your gear, making it an ideal Activity for anyone who wants some time outside but doesn’t have enough energy left over after their day job!

Properly equipped (and knowing how) this simple craft allows people living near lakeside communities alike access into remote pastures where valley views are never-ending.

Basics Of Kayak Camping

Kayak camping is a unique experience that requires some adjustment to backpacking techniques. Kayaks have hatch shapes and sizes which make it difficult, if not impossible at times for large items like sleeping bags or clothes racks from your car (which could be very useful).

The best way around this issue is to try out how much room there really appears before you start loading up on anything too extensive; only bring what can actually fit into the available space!

Designing Boat?

When designing the layout of your boat, it is important to consider where you will be placing heavy items like engines and gear. It’s recommended that these parts go toward either end so they do not sink up into position when traveling through water or shift while driving on land with all their weight concentrated at one point nitpicking about the balance between front-back left-right etc…


When I’m out on the water, it’s not just about making sure that my boat can hold up to its maximum capacity – which is usually enough. There are some things you should never have to worry about when traveling through rough terrain or sitting in one place for any length of time.

Like wind resistance and balance (not necessarily at each other). So offering anything onto/offloading from your deck will only slow down both yourself AND those around YOU!!!

Though I try not to have any gear inside the cockpit with me, there are some items at my feet. If it’s something that can float and provide essential supplies for an emergency exit strategy – such as life jackets or paddles.

Waterproof Flaps… Aren’t.

Water can happen at any time, even if you think there is no way it could. It’s just called Murphy’s Law for a reason and because of this law, your boat will eventually end up with some water inside of its hatches when least expected.

Whether it be during the day or night! You should always take precautions to make sure everything stays dry including keeping clothes separate from other items so they don’t get wet by mistake. So. we suggest

  • Packing an extra sleeping bag in case one gets ruined (or flooded);
  • Starting fires using waterproof matches which also work well as emergency candles.

Dry Bags?

Dry bags are a great way to keep your stuff dry. But they’re expensive and most touring or sea kayaks only fit limited numbers of them- especially larger ones!

My 17 footer can hold 3 medium-sized (~20 liters) packs in its hatches; but if you have an English style boat with skegs (which take up some space), then that number will decrease even more because there isn’t much room left over for clothes after all those fishing tools.

The best way to ensure your items stay dry is by getting a range of sizes. Get multiple small ones in addition to some larger, more durable models for when you’re storing food or other important supplies that need extra protection against water damage.

I find it’s always better safe than sorry–you never know what might happen! But around these medium-dry bags, I can fit many smaller ones which means if we want our gear ready at all times then this will be an essential component during any backpacking trip (or even just everyday life).

Waterproofing Your Sleeping Bag

Waterproofing your sleeping bag is important for many reasons, but it can be tricky without the right equipment. A simple trick here is to make sure you have dry clothes when waking up in a puddle or bush again after using an untreated fabric like nylon (which won’t resist water as well).

This will help keep all those pesky leaks at bay while also providing some extra protection against wear and tear on both components!

Boxes and Can

Kayaking is all about self-sufficiency and not relying on outside help. I don’t want to be a slave to my nutrition, so when camping in remote areas with no resupply points for weeks at a time (or even months), it’s important that you have the tools necessary if something goes wrong – which inevitably will happen sometimes!

I Refuse To Eat Mres Or Freeze-Dried Foods

Cans are better than bottles, and boxes are even better! One reason to choose a can over a bottle is that you don’t need any extra space for storing your garbage.

When it’s time to take out the trash (or recycle) all I have left behind after use might just be one crushed package of corn or tomato sauce topped off by an empty fridge magnet which could’ve been used as decoration.

What Is a Better Option?

Boxed wines are a great option for those who want to enjoy their wine at camp or on vacation without bringing an entire case. You can take just the Mylar bag out of the box and have plenty left over, which doesn’t need much handling since it’s strong enough that any abuse would be unlikely to cause damage.

Plus, boxes themselves work well as temporary storage spaces when not being used by someone else!

Eating Good During Kayak Camping

Kayaking is a great way to get outdoors and enjoy nature, but there’s one thing that I always seemed missing: fresh meats. How could you have an enjoyable trip with nothing but store-bought meals?

That would be like going on vacation without your favorite snacks! Also, bring

So, when our family spends time in the wilderness skylining over waterfalls or paddling through glacial lakes; it doesn’t end until we return home full of delicious recipes made from what we found out today – this includes both vegetarian dishes as well as meatier options.

You may find yourself without food after a disaster or when you’re camping. canned meats like ham, chicken, and tuna can be used in many recipes to save time instead of cooking fresh ingredients.

All of this will make a Comfortable Camping experience for all of you!
