Camping Quotes On Signs & Prints
“What Happens In The Camper Stays In The Camper”
What Happens In The Camper Stays In The Camper Sign
I think it was a Las Vegas advertising campaign that started the “What happens in…” phrase … but … it is being used everywhere now!
What Happens In The Camper Stays In The Camper is a funny camping quote that has special meaning for every family.
Without going in too much detail, when our family uses this quote it is because we are all using one bathroom!
That brings me to a very useful camping tip: be an early riser so you are the first person of the day to use the camper bathroom.

Occasionally you just need to “Explore” … period … end of story!

Camping Quotes On Decals & Stickers
“Not All Those Who Wander Are Lost”
Not All Those Who Wander Are Lost Sticker Decal
Aimlessly wandering through daily life is a no-no, but wandering in the wilderness is encouraged!
I love the peaceful experience and slower pace camping provides. It is during those experiences I say “Not All Those Who Wander Are Lost” and head out for a bit of wilderness wandering. This is one of the most famous camping quotes and one of the most loved too!
“Go Play Outside”
Go Play Outside Sticker
As a kid I remember playing outside all of the time. Riding bicycles, building forts, catching butterflies … you know … normal kid stuff. Now, as an adult, I need to make time to “Go Play Outside”, and when I do, I am soooooo happy I did!
Decals with fun camping quotes make some of the best camping gifts because they are inexpensive, reflect the personality of the camper … and … they are easy to wrap and ship!
“Keep Calm And Camp On”

Camping Quotes On Coffee Mugs
“The Mountains Are Calling And I Must Go”
The Mountains Are Calling And I Must Go Ceramic Campfire Coffee Mug
One of the most famous outdoor quotes from John Muir, The Mountains Are Calling And I Must Go, was part of a letter he wrote to his sister Sarah dated September 3rd, 1873 while in Yosemite Valley. Here is the entire letter:
Dear Sister Sarah:
I have just returned from the longest and hardest trip I have ever made in the mountains, having been gone over five weeks. I am weary, but resting fast; sleepy, but sleeping deep and fast; hungry, but eating much. For two weeks I explored the glaciers of the summits east of here, sleeping among the snowy mountains without blankets and with but little to eat on account of its being so inaccessible. After my icy experiences it seems strange to be down here in so warm and flowery a climate.
I will soon be off again, determined to use all the season in prosecuting my researches–will go next to Kings River a hundred miles south, then to Lake Tahoe and adjacent mountains, and in winter work in Oakland with my pen.
The Scotch are slow, but some day I will have the results of my mount mountain studies in a form in which you all will be able to read and judge of them. In the mean time I write occasionally for the Overland Monthly, but neither these magazine articles nor my first book will form any finished part of the scientific contribution that I hope to make. . . . The mountains are calling and I must go, and I will work on while I can, studying incessantly.
My love to you all, David and the children and Mrs. Galloway who though shut out from sunshine yet dwells in Light. I will write again when I return from Kings River Canyon. The leaf sent me from China is for Cecelia.
Farewell, with love everlasting

“Livin’ The Dream”
Livin’ The Dream Funny Camping T-Shirt
When someone uses the “Livin’ The Dream” funny camping quote … they are usually loving every minute of their RV camping experiences …
every so often, it is delivered with such sarcasm you know there is something very un-funny about their adventures.
When that happens, I just smile and offer up a plate of yummy camp food I just cooked in my Dutch oven and change the subject!
Happy Camper Crew Socks
The Happy Camper term is one of the most popular camping quotes that has come to define almost any person on the planet who is NOT camping! LOL

This is the “code word” we use when we are camping to say “Sorry, I just can’t help you with that right now.”
The “I’m Unplugging” quote goes a long way to make sure the camping trip stays light, fun and a work-free zone.
My fellow recovering workaholics will understand the need for this one!
