What could be a better outdoor adventure than going out camping with your best mates? It might just be the greatest way to enjoy everything nature has to offer! We dare you to come up with a better way to spend a day than pitching your tents, roasting some marshmallows, and taking in the scenery. Sadly, not everyone is cut out for the camping life. Luckily for us, however, these people have made it possible for these hilarious photos to happen!

Biker’s Tent

When you go out camping, it is important to prepare the things you will take with you. The “Knuckle Devils” weren’t fools and so they prepared for the annual camping trip with great care. They even managed to find a tent that would fit on the back of a bike. Good job, boys!

Verifying The Wildlife

He couldn’t tell if the lion was male or female so he decided to check with his book! No need to put on his glasses for a closer look as the king of the wild edged closer to his spot.

A Crappy Barbecue

New ideas are always welcome, though some people go a little too far. There are not a lot of things you can do with an old toilet so they decided to use it as a makeshift grill AND fridge. It’s brilliant but I’ll have to pass.

Law Abiding Campers

There is no doubt that signs can be helpful but I have always considered them to be mere suggestions. Whenever I see “50 MPH” or “Stop” signs, I’ll definitely consider it but I might not follow it. It seems like all the campers here would agree with me!

He Pitched His Tent

Don’t go thinking nasty thoughts now. This is the most perfect name for a tent brand we have ever seen. We all know that a tent needs to be erect at all times or else hard times will follow!

Cheating At Camping

Most people go camping in the hope of enjoying the great outdoors and everything it has to offer. It’s a shot at leaving everything behind and that’s why the A/C is terribly out of place.

Water And Air Sports

They planned to take out the kids to the river to take in the cool breeze and the fresh air. This young girl might have gotten more than she bargained for, however!

Mail Meal

If you have an old mailbox, this is one way of repurposing it! Who would have thought to do such a thing? Someone resourceful (and maybe desperate), that’s who.

Campoghini

It might not be such a bad idea to take your Lamborghini the next time you go camping. Apparently, you can even use its rising doors to set up a clothesline!

Innovation

Personally, I can’t come up with anything better than enjoying the wilderness. But let’s face it, the “call of nature” wasn’t meant to be taken literally. Fortunately, someone came up with a great way to deal with it. I’ll definitely do this on my next camping trip and you should too.

Different campsites offer different things for campers. Are you someone who prefers camp grounds with sand instead of grass? If so, head this way then!

Not A Hot Dog

Not everyone likes camping, though sometimes it simply cannot be helped. Take this pooch for example. It definitely looks like the dog would have preferred staying at home instead!

Goldilocks’ Tent

Sure, Goldilocks pretty much made herself home in the Bear residence but she did not expect they were doing the same thing to her. When she gets back, she’ll definitely wonder who ate all of her porridge!

Life Priorities

This fellow here clearly knows the value of his possessions. After all, they did tell him to store his valuables in his tent and that was exactly what he did. Unfortunately for his friend, he valued his bike more than anything!

These guys are on a league of their own! I have so many questions. How do you get up there? How do you get down? What happens if the person at the top falls down?

Someone Didn’t Think

The driver had a difficult time taking his car out of the mud and it was a challenge to accomplish this without waking anyone up. It’s a good thing he managed to succeed, though the campers have to contend with the mess once they wake up!

He Kept His Promise

He forgot that he promised his spouse he’ll go camping with the children this weekend. Unfortunately, he also told his boss he will work while the others took some time off. Nobody said he couldn’t do both!

Wild Naaaybors

When camping, don’t forget to pick a good spot to pitch your tent! As a rule of thumb, you can do better than doing this right beside a barn. Otherwise, expect nosy neighbors who won’t respect your privacy.

At Least We Know Now

We all have our fair share of secrets and there’s a reason we aren’t eager to blurt them out to the world. Personally, I think a secret campground only sounds exciting if you discover it on your own.

The Outdoor Experience

True enough, it is fun to sleep under the stars. However, you definitely need to be careful where you lie down. Personally, we think the guy in the picture would have been better off sleeping in a tent.

Toasty Couple

True enough, camping is not always going to be a treat. People who live for the outdoors, however, beg to differ. There are many ways to have fun in the woods as these people can tell you…

Short Or Long Term

Hmm. Maybe this guy just wanted to have all his bases covered but it’s a little excessive for a camping trip, isn’t it? Better safe than sorry, I suppose.

When The Bed Is Bigger Than The Tent

Your tent should be spacious enough to keep you comfortable. This person didn’t account for the size of the air mattress, however… They were aiming for comfort but the plan clearly backfired on them. Balance is always the key!

She must have searched everyone for her phone! I bet she only found where it went when the alarm clock rang in the morning. Maybe the phone went scot-free after freezing overnight! For her sake, I sure hope so!

Smore Is Better

The name of a two-man tent suggests a fairly small capacity, doesn’t it? In the end, it’s up to us to see how much people can fit inside. For these guys, dozen people is a more accurate number!

Thinking Outside The Box

When you have a bonfire, you can be sure that a barbecue will soon follow. But what do you do when you left the grill at home? You recycle, that’s what. It’s good for the environment as well.

Rule Number One

Every child knows the most important rule that governs slumber parties and sleepovers. Yes, this applies to sleeping under the stars as well! Always keep this piece of wisdom in mind: “Never go to sleep first”.

Thought It Was The Boat

When you’re in a hurry, you often forget to double-check several things before you leave your house. For this driver, he did not notice that he attached his trailer to the truck instead! He only realized he left the boat at home when he finally got to the beach. Que sera sera.

Thank Goodness For The Sign

Campers were sure lucky that someone thought to put this sign in place. Otherwise, campers might have gotten way too wet for comfort. I can’t help but wonder who made the reservation, though. Any ideas?

Scared Of Creepy Crawlies

If I sleep that way, I doubt I’ll feel completely refreshed by the time I get up. However, some people might think the sleeping position is worth it. It definitely keeps them away from creepy crawlies.

Anyone In There

This would make for some hilarious sightseeing… if it weren’t your tent. Nothing will have you rushing back faster to the campsite than the moment you realize you left your sleeping girlfriend inside when you left to go on a hike. Run, Forrest, run!

When Life Gives You Lemons

Now here is a gentleman that we should all try to emulate. If the campgrounds get flooded, what’s a guy to do? The answer is apparently to float on in your air mattress!

Sure, it looks like a picnic table but I want you to take a closer look at the photo. You can do a lot more than dine here! It’s a fishing dock, a boat, and a home all in one.

Dad Award Goes To

Fathers are all built differently but we have to admit this one is miles ahead when it comes to teaching his kids valuable life skills. This little girl has already mastered the art of cooking burgers!

At Least There’s A Seat

The throne of the camp master is definitely pretty impressive. The stones represent all the battles he has won… Kidding! No matter what, it might not be a good idea to catch someone sitting on it.

But We Don’t Have A Dog

Now, who is this handsome fellow right here? With a smile like that, I think this might be the most handsome dog I’ve ever seen. However, the person in the hammock might not feel the same way if they don’t have a dog…

Something Wrong?

Well, these guys definitely did not know how to close their tent properly. Someone give them a lesson, quick! If they were aiming for cozy, however, they were on the right track.

We’ve already talked about rule number one of camping and it is time we move onto the next one. Everyone, do not start drinking before your tent has been erected. Case in point: this guy.

Just Making Breakfast

This kangaroo had no idea why everyone was making such a big deal. He just wanted to cook up some breakfast? It’s the most important meal of the day, after all.

Some don’t enjoy camping and there’s nothing wrong with that. We’ll have you know the Smurfs are among these people. Well, that would be the case if that’s what this guy thinks he is anyway.

I’m drawing a blank as I try to find an acceptable explanation for this image. How could it have happened? I’ll give a prize to someone who can explain it to me.

Extreme Camping

Anyone who has a fear of heights should definitely avoid going on this camping trip. However, daredevils will probably like the idea of sleeping in a tent off a cliff! No sleepwalkers and fidgety sleepers allowed here.

The Great Indoors

The great indoors is another option for your campsite. Bring out your sunglasses because the tungsten light might blind you! The X-Files poster is a nice touch because the slogan is perfect for the situation at hand.

Attention to detail is necessary in order to understand what we’re talking about. Nope, things are not the way they seem. Once you understand what we’re referring to, you can’t unsee it!

Classy Camping

Clearly, people who say it is impossible to go camping in style have never met this guy. He took his RV, Porsche, and speedboat on his trip. Feel free to do the same if you wish!

Campfires can definitely cause burns if you’re not careful. We admire his dedication to keep away from harm’s reach, though he went a little overboard with his precaution!

Where’s The Guide?

We all have to start somewhere, though we really recommend going through the manual if you have never set up a tent before. These kids somehow managed to pitch it but it looks like it will crash down any moment now.

Too Long

You might want to consider ending your camping trip when the campsite looks completely different than it did the first time you got there. The pond is cool but it definitely wasn’t there before!

When Camping Is Just Not For You

Some parents think the best way to raise outdoorsy kids is to start them young. In my opinion, it would be better to wait until they’re a little older…

It would be an error to leave your tent behind but it’s not the end of the world. You can create one if you have some imagination. Not resourceful? Plead with your friend to let you stay with them!

Camping On The Water

Ooh, this looks cozy! However, I don’t think it’s a good idea to sleep there overnight. Currents can be unpredictable and you might just find yourself in a new place altogether!

We can’t tell if this is a boat or a tent. The answer clearly does not matter to these guys, however. Boys, don’t forget to read the instruction manual next time!

Zoolander

In the Ben Stiller film Zoolander, there was a bit about a “hospital for ants”. With that in mind, why can’t ants get their own tents too?

For this guy, this tiny tent is all he needs. It proved to be a perfect fit for this head. He didn’t seem to mind! Maybe he’ll be known as the pioneer of minimalist camping in the future.

When You Go Camping In Summer

Summer guarantees minimal rain, though the sun will also be working overtime. Are you prepared to wake up sweating buckets? Keep in mind that your tent will practically become a sauna!
