The Camping Quotes I Live By

Disclosure: Opinions, camping practices, and experiences expressed with articles posted here or otherwise via user-generated content posted elsewhere on this site are solely the authors’ and do not reflect the opinions, beliefs, camping practices, or experiences of this website or Camping Tools, Inc.

If you’re like me, nothing touches the soul quite like the reminder of the way you feel when you're in the great outdoors. When I’m out in nature with family and friends I feel grounded as if all is well. Sometimes when I’m in the “real” world and the stresses of life are upon me I need to lean on my past experiences to help me feel at peace. 

For those of you who feel the same, I wanted to share some of the quotes that inspire me. None of these quotes are written by me. They’re camping quotes I’ve heard that stuck with me, or that I have plastered somewhere. Whether it’s plastered in our home, on our campground or in my heart these are the words I live by.

“Life is best when you’re camping”

Simple but true. While some live for the weekend we live for the days we can go camping again.

“A bad day camping is still better than a good day working.”

We’ve all had those bad camping experiences. You know, rain soaks the tent so you all have to sleep in the truck. Yeah, those kinds of experiences. But it’s those bad days that make the best memories. 

“The wilderness holds answers to questions we have not yet learned to ask”

There’s many mysteries to nature. One of them being its relationship with us as humans. It can provide us with experiences and richness of wisdom that we didn’t even know we needed. But you have to be willing to listen.

“The glories of a mountain campfire are far greater than may be guessed.”

The campfire; another one of nature’s great mysteries. After all these years of staring into the fire I’ve yet to truly know why it captivates me so. 

“Life is better by the campfire”

Whether you’re in the backyard or isolated alone in the woods, there’s just something about a campfire’s life-giving energy that makes all seem well.

“Home Is Where You Park It”

No need to be homesick when we have Mother Nature.

“If people sat outside and looked at the stars each night, I'll bet they'd live a lot differently.”

Sometimes as adults we lose our sense of wonder and abundance. Getting out, slowing down and staring at the stars can truly bring some balance in our hearts and perspectives to our minds.

“Wander Often, Wonder Always”

Why do we get complacent and lose our sense of adventure? This quote reminds me to keep the wonder of life alive.

“Be Wild, Live Free”

Weren’t we born to live!? Life without a little wildness and freedom isn’t a fully lived life.

“Roses are red, mud is brown, the woods are better than any night on the town.”

Fancy dinners are nice, but there’s nothing more romantic or freeing than a night spent under the stars.

“There's no wi-fi in the mountains, but you'll find no better connection.”

It’s easy to have FOMO when we run around with our devices everyday. But when you look out over the mountain range you’ll know this is what you’ve been missing all along. Nature’s an important part of all humans in which we need to stay connected to.

“I go to nature to be soothed and healed, and to have my sense put in order.”

When life beats me down or things in life just aren’t making sense, I know it’s time to get back into nature. To this day I don’t quite understand how it works, but I know I need nature’s soothing power in my life.

“Take the road less traveled”

Too often do we live our lives by the status quo. Sometimes I need to remind myself that to get the fulfillment my heart desires that we must sometimes take a different path.

“Of all the paths you take in life, make sure a few of them are dirt.”

Because why not?

“My wish is to always stay like this, living quietly in a corner of nature.”

Future goals? Retirement plan? I don’t know. All I know is the contentment felt as I sit in my own little quiet corner of nature wishing it never had to end.
