10 Romantic Camping Ideas For Couples
You’ve probably heard the saying … the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach!
The good news … that is not the ONLY way to enjoy a romantic camping trip together.
Here are a few camping Valentine trip ideas to add to your romantic camping trip checklist to turn a rugged camping trip in to a sweetheart-worthy camping romantic getaway!
- Choose your destination wisely … think of the most romantic camping in USA quiet campgrounds nestled in pretty scenery … and go there! Take your loved one to a beautiful National Park and avoid the crowds, a remote spot Camping In National Forests or a tranquil state park campsite. Romantic campgrounds are not found … they are created by you and the experiences you have with your significant other. My husband always says … it’s not where you are … it’s who you’re with.
- Snuggle by a romantic campfire and add a little extra fun with flame colorant to create a different feel from ordinary campfires.
- Play gentle music to set a peaceful, loving atmosphere and use a waterproof bluetooth speaker to get great sound out of a lightweight, portable piece of gear that is designed to be used outdoors.
- Plan romantic camping meals for two that are special but easy and include flavors you both enjoy. Get inspired with our Camping Meals For Two.
- Dim the lights by using the glimmer from the campfire, moon and stars to light your adventure. If the natural light is too dim, add some candles and soft solar, waterproof fairy glamping lights that are easy to hang, don’t require electricity and that radiate a romantic glow.
- Turn off your phones and remove outside disturbances. It is so romantic knowing there is nothing more important than the two of you on the planet!
- Enjoy romantic couple camping activities like hiking to a scenic spot with a picnic backpack for a romantic picnic in a quiet location, surrounded by chirping birds, fresh air and phenomenal views.
- Make a memorable toast and use outdoor-friendly silicone glasses filled with your favorite “special occasion” beverage.
- Glamp up your sleeping with soft and romantic “glamping for two” bedding … or … a couples sleeping bag if you are valentines day tent camping and don’t want to carry too much bulk.
- Add a little surprise camping trip Valentine gift exchange … check out some fun camping themed gift ideas for your darling below.
Easy And Delicious Romantic Camping Meals
Make cooking part of the fun by prepping as much ahead as possible.
Some of our favorite recipes for this special sweetheart holiday include:
Breakfast: Muffin Tin Eggs On The Campfire because you can make them with any ingredients you choose while you get warmed by a morning campfire.
Lunch: Grilled Flatbread With Prosciutto, Charred Tomatoes, Fresh Mozzarella And Basil this is a really simple and fresh recipe that is perfect for your midday meal.
Appetizer: Stuffed Baby Bells Dutch Oven Campfire Appetizer these little gems are cute, tasty and fun to eat with a nice glass of wine.
Dinner: Campfire Dutch Oven Thai Basil Shrimp the flavor of this sauce is AMAZING and a nice addition to the shrimp that is served over rice.
Dessert: Chocolate Lava Dutch Oven Cakes this dessert is something you might get in a fancy restaurant and it’s the perfect ending to your romantic camping dinner ideas!
Finding Romantic Campsites
When choosing your camp location, consider spots that …
- are private and tucked away from nearby campers,
- have pretty views (especially of sunrises and sunsets),
- tend to be quiet with only the sounds of nature in the immediate area, and
- are away from artificial lights.
- Dispersed campsites in National Forests usually have light traffic over the Valentine’s holiday so think about enjoying a remote spot and go camping in National Forests.
If you’d rather stay in a less-rugged environment, look for romantic campgrounds with stunning scenery that offer activities for the holiday … like adult-only campsite areas and Valentine’s Day dinners and dances.
Valentine Camper Decor
One way to make your campsite feel festive for the holiday is by decorating in a red-colored theme … camping string lights are an easy way to do that!
You can use holiday-specific heart-shaped string lights or you can use a basic fairy-style string light that is red in color … then … you can use it for Christmas and all of the red, white & blue patriotic holidays too.
