2. Use a belt and hooks to keep your stuff organized. Simply wrap a belt around the tree and place hooks on it. This will make it easy to find those important items and will keep critters away from your food.

3. Place a headlamp on a bottle of water.  There's no reason to bring a lantern on your next camping trip. Simply slide your headlamp onto a bottle of water. The water will help magnify the light to give you a light source as good as any lantern.

5. Freeze a Sponge Inside of a Plastic Bag Instead of Using Bags of Ice. A cooler full of melted ice can be a mess. Avoid this mess with this easy campsite hack. Placing frozen sponges in your cooler will act like ice but the sponge will hold all of the water as they melt. Additionally, all of the moisture stays inside the plastic bag making cleanup very easy.
