Hammock Camping 101: What You Need to Know

A small grouping of tents and a hammock slung between two trees out in the wilderness.
This is what I hope will be the beginning of a series. In the coming months, my son and I will be documenting our time off the ground with some various camping configurations, and sharing that here with you. Here are some basic tips to get you started, or if you are looking at investing in a new hammock for your next outdoor adventure.

If you have ever been camping, you have probably experienced sleeping in a tent on unforgiving ground that makes your back hurt after one or two nights. This is the traditional camping experience and one that someone shouldn’t shy away from. But, if you are looking for a more comfortable way to sleep, hammock camping is the way to go. This article is going to outline the basics of how to set up a suspended tent with a hammock and tarp setup, and we are going to go over general basics that are important to know, like whether you need a suspension kit or what to look for in a hammock camping site.
