Camping Has Never Been Funnier These Photos Prove It


Camping is supposed to be one of the greatest outdoor adventures a person can do. There’s sun, there’s nature, there are raging rapids and there are bonfires. What about roasted marshmallows and pitching tents? They’re all a riot! But then there are people who are just not cut out for camping and all the fun that comes with it. Here is a slideshow of the funniest camping fails. Prepare to laugh your tummy muscles into a six-pack!

There are so many different ways to enjoy the great outdoors. My family used to do day trips that included hiking, swimming in some streams and eating well-packed sandwiches. But growing up into teenhood, I learned that going camping could include a whole series of other activities. As a group of friends, we would head out to the river, take a couple rafts and paddle our way down to the quietest and calmest streams of the river. I can’t even say how many hours we burned in the sun or how many hours the sun burned us. But when you go camping overnight, everything changes. The river sounds different, the woods look, feel and definitely sound different too. But that’s not to say that it’s scary or anything, it’s just different.

The best way to make your camp grounds feel like your temporary home is through fire. Once that campfire is up and burning, with those beautiful flames dancing to the heavens, you can really relax. Hey, when there’s a campfire there should be music. And where there’s music there should be food and drink. Smores are a bonfire’s best buddy, so make sure you get your hands on some chocolates, some marshmallows and graham crackers. Another favorite is packing some hot dogs onto a stick and letting them cook until they start bubbling. Guaranteed – one side will always be more burned than the other. Par for the course.

The pictures you’re going to see in this camping fail slideshow are enough to make you reconsider what camping is all about. You’re guaranteed to laugh hard, and you’ll be begging the question – “How the heck do these people exist?” With a closer look you might be able to understand that this could potentially be any of us. So sit back in the comfort of your home and enjoy.

Biker’s Tent

We all know that going camping means you have to decide on the essentials before heading out. So when the “Knuckle Devils” headed out for their annual camping trip, they knew they needed a tent that could fit on the back of a motorcycle.

Verifying The Wildlife

Harold wasn’t sure if he was looking at a male lion or a lioness. It took all of 35 seconds for him to realize that he didn’t need his glasses to verify.

The Outdoor Experience

“We’ll go camping,” they said. “It’ll be fun,” they promised. “You can sleep anywhere…” and that was the last time Greg ever went camping without a tent.

Camping isn’t for everyone, but for those of us who love hitting the outdoors, it’s always great fun! I know that it’s not only me who gets so excited about spending time under the stars…

A Crappy Barbecue

I love the idea of being innovative and trying new ideas. This might not have been the best way to use an old toilet. In fact, I think the idea stinks.

Law Abiding Campers

Signs are all around us to guide us, but not to tell us what to do. They’re actually more like suggestions, in my opinion. So when the sign reads “Stop” or “50 MPH”, it’s only a suggestion, really.

He Pitched His Tent

Get your mind out of the gutter! This is a brilliant name for a tent brand. How else would you know when your tent is up at full attention?

Cheating At Camping

So we all know that getting out into the great outdoors means that you leave everything behind and enjoy nature. But is this not defeating the purpose?

Water And Air Sports

They thought they’d take the kids out for a day on the water. There’s nothing like the river breeze and the fresh air… lots of fresh air.

Mail Meal

One man’s trash is another man’s treasure… or it’s simply his barbecue. An old post box can always be given a second chance.

Innovation

For me, being out in the wild is one of the greatest pleasures we can afford ourselves. But pooping out in nature isn’t always the most comfortable thing to do. That is unless you have a smart idea.

Simple Name

There were two different campsites, one had grass and one had sand. This sign clearly directs camping-wanna-be’s to the sandier of the two.

Goldilocks’ Tent

Life Priorities

Glenn knew very well that life has its priorities. He was told that it was best to keep valuables inside the tent during the night. So he snuggled up with her and held her until morning light.

Next Level Camping

My first question is, “whaaaa…” Right, I don’t know where to start. Who decides where you sleep? How do you get to the top? How do you get down?

Someone Didn’t Think

This driver couldn’t get his truck out of the mud, but he also didn’t want to wake anyone up. The good news, he got truck out of the mud and he didn’t wake anyone up. The bad news? Well, they would soon find out.

At Least We Know Now

There’s a saying: “Three may keep a secret, if two of them are dead.” So the fact that there is a sign pointing you in the direction of the “secret campground” might be counterproductive.

When The Bed Is Bigger Than The Tent

The size of your tent and the size of your air mattress should be dimensionally fit. This guy virtually kissed the top of the tent the entire night. He’ll learn his lesson.

Extreme Camping

This one is not for those who enjoy the comfort of the ground. Camping doesn’t get much riskier than hanging off the side of a cliff in a tent. We just hope none of these guys sleep-walk.
