These Camping Photos will Make You Think Twice About Hitting the Great Outdoors!
Ahh, camping: a serene activity that can reset your mind and help you relax… or at least it’s supposed to be. However, sometimes things go awry and plans get changed – especially when you’re at Mother Nature’s mercy. Let’s see if these happy (and unhappy) campers have any tips… or tales of caution!
The Cat’s Out of the Bag
This cat is proof that maybe you should think twice about whether camping is right for you. This cat thought it would be a blast, but this picture shows that it was oh so wrong! This little guy has seen some stuff.
Sometimes it isn’t Mother Nature that ruins your camping trip – sometimes it’s an S.O.B. in a gigantic truck. This inconsiderate individual decided peeling out in the mud was more important than, you know, treating other people with respect. I’m sure these campers were glad when this guy left.
“Do this, don’t do that, can’t you read the sign?”
Perhaps if somebody had made this sign a little bigger these campers would have seen it, then surely they would have obeyed! Oops.
Pimp My Ride
When you spend all of your money on a Lamborghini, you can live in it! This creative camper used his luxury home/car as a clothesline. Who says rich people aren’t down to earth?
One True Love
We have a feeling that this camper isn’t going to have a girlfriend when he gets back home. At least he can snuggle with his trusty bicycle.
If you want luxury camping then an RV is the way to go. Unfortunately they are very expensive. The good news is that you can make one like this family did! Maybe they sell them on Etsy!
When Mom’s Away…
We aren’t experts in parenting or anything, but this man should take some classes. Toddlers plus fire equals NO!!!!
Eight Miles High
What do you do if you’re at the top and nature calls? Actually, we don’t even want to know. But we do want to know how did they get up there??
It’s not uncommon to accidentally jump in the water with your phone in your pocket. This person thought their phone was safe on dry land. Oof! They forgot about those pesky summer storms. We hope they have Apple Care.
Clown Car Camping
Do these guys know that they make tents big enough for six people? Maybe they’re just really close!
This poor guy is missing out on the great outdoors! Sometimes people just can’t take a day off work. We hope he got a break!
When was this tent purchased? 1950? Maybe this camper is Amish – they don’t like zippers, right?
Sorry buddy, this Husky called dibs on this cozy hammock; and how could you kick the cute pup out? It’s not anybody’s fault. Who can outrun a Husky?
Is this guy levitating or what? The huge rapid seems to have only affected him! We hope he landed back in the raft!
No Reservations Needed
Reservations for this giant puddle of mud probably weren’t necessary. But hey – nobody else is going to steal the spot!
Honey, We Shrunk the Tent
We have heard of tiny houses, but not tiny tents. I smell a new HGTV show!
So you left your tent at home? No big deal. When camping in the hot sun wears you out, you can pretty much fall asleep anywhere! This guy’s ingenuity is A+.
Troop Beverly Hills
At this point you might as well just stay in a Marriott. Not that we blame them for the AC. This is an idea worth stealing!
We hope this is an old mailbox. If not, these clever campers are setting federal property on fire. That’s worse than ripping the tag off of your mattress!
Room for one more?
Did they bring the horse with them, or is he an intruder? Either way, it doesn’t look like this horse has realized he isn’t going to fit into that thing. I’d hate to be in that tent!
Not Much to Look At
This might not be the most innovative idea we’ve seen, but it gets the job done. We are happy that this rogue shopping cart found a meaning to its life.
This good dog is rocking this Patagonia hoodie. Maybe it can become an influencer! I’d buy it!
This girl was literally launched into the air while tubing on the lake. That landing is not going to feel good! At least she is wearing a life jacket.
Sense of Humor
There is no way that this crude (and hilarious!) name wasn’t intentional. I mean… Come on! 10/10 for laughs.
Sandy Nuts? More like Sandy Tent!
Camping on the beach can be an amazing, beautiful experience. Just remember not to set up camp too close to the water. Tides plus tents don’t mix!
Don’t Look Down
There is no way these people are in their right minds! At least they don’t have to worry about bears.
A Very Large Visitor
And we thought the horse in the tent was scary. This lion on the plains in Africa wants this man’s tent – and he has a gun! You better give him your tent, man.
This couple is in for a wet surprise when they wake up. This prank could end with somebody being eaten by an alligator, or at the least end a friendship – We do not recommend this.
Camping trips are so fun and they can be something to look forward during the boring workweek. But not matter how excited you are, you might need to reschedule if the forecast is a tsunami.
Sir, can you explain how this happened?
This looks extremely painful! The only explanation we can think of is LSD. These cops don’t seem very concerned with the crazy guy covered in cacti.
No thanks, I’m full.
We will give credit to these campers for the ingenuity, but we don’t think we would want to eat anything grilled over a toilet bowl. We will take a cold one from the tank, however!
The First Rule of Fight Club…
The secret’s out! And it’s only ¼ mile down the road. This sign is an oxymoron… speaking of moron – who put this sign up?
King Sized Bed
Don’t buy a bed fit for a king to go inside of a tent made for a hobo. Somebody didn’t read the dimensions correctly! Oops.
You know you haven’t raked your yard in a year, so use it for making smores! This is brilliant. Has anybody patented this yet?
Another Water Mishap
The green part of a map is the land. The blue part is water. This guy just got them mixed up. This camping trip went under water quickly.
What’s at stake?
You know those plastic spikes that come with a tent? Yeah… those are for securing the tent to the ground. This is a good example of what can happen when you decide to skip the stakes! Goodbye tent. You’ll be missed.
This man has the right attitude. He didn’t let a little flooding ruin his music festival fun. We love his creativity. Thumbs up!
This watercraft looks a little ridiculous, but it’s actually really cool! A picnic table, a trolling motor, an umbrella, and a cooler are all these guys need to have fun on the river.
Bathroom with a View
We can’t decide whether this is better or worse than going in the woods. Actually, it’s worse. A for effort though!
Horses, and Lions, and Bears – Oh My!
Are there any animals that don’t attack tents? Maybe these campers should have cooked their food over an old toilet bowl. Not even the bears would touch that.
What Camping Trip?
This looks like a really fun camping trip. But if the group of campers chug all of this top shelf booze on their trip, they probably won’t remember most of it. We would still go with them.
30 Going on 13
This camper enjoys lowbrow, crude humor. How immature. (Okay, we lied; it’s actually pretty hilarious!)
Fit for a Princess
It’s really cool to see the Duchess of Cambridge hanging out in a raggedy tent. However, the look on her face says that she is used to nicer digs.
We know where this guy has been…
… This camper obviously visited that portable bar from earlier. We knew those guys should take it easy on that liquor!
Either this photo is perfectly timed or that Golden Retriever has some serious heartburn. Maybe he should see a vet!
Maybe they are a collector
Is there a giant magnet in this tent? We can’t think of any reason for 200 folding chairs to be piled in front of a single tent.
Are you looking at me?
This silly-looking ghost tent looks kind of lost and confused. We are confused to. Why does it have a face?
Lonely people want to camp too
This semi-conscious man needed a last minute girl to take camping. Instead he came with this monstrosity. We just hope she makes him happy – because it looks like she is making Toto really uncomfortable.
Speaking of Heartburn
No wonder those Flamin’ Hot Cheetos give us such bad heartburn – they’re apparently highly flammable! But don’t toss them! Use them for kindling.
Lost in Translation
If monkeys can type on computers, who says dogs cannot read? This sign creator translated the sign for canines just in case.
Missing the Point
I’m not sure that these ladies are enjoying their camping trip. Candy Crush is way more fun than family bonding anyway.
Is it just us, or do these toilets keep getting weirder? We would definitely enjoy the toilet paper though.
Rollin’ Down the River
At a glance this photo looks like a lazy river ride; but upon closer inspection we see that it is another flooded campsite. Do people know they can check the radar on their phone?
Can’t say they didn’t warn you
Let’s be honest – this is pretty trashy. And trash isn’t supposed to be on the campgrounds. Move your tent away from them!
No No No No No!
This woman looks like she is about to experience the painful side of kayaking. How did this even happen? We hope she was okay!
Just Roll With It
Did your campsite get flooded too? Just do like this guy and make the best of it. When is the last time you played in the mud?
Boys Will Be Boys
Why is it usually men that injure themselves while camping? These guys were having fun, until one of them face planted on the ground. Ouch!
Maybe this guy thought he rented the amphibious model. This regular kayak sure isn’t going to make it over those rocks. Yikes!
Look! It’s another outdoor toilet. We don’t think we would be comfortable using any of the toilets we’ve seen so far.
This is like the Titanic all over again. We wonder if the captain went down with the raft?
This tent looks like one you’d make in your living room for your kids. I’m not sure I would use it for actual camping. It does not seem safe – especially after all of the animal intruders we have seen!
Just plow your way through
This driver is either a huge jerk, or is vision-impaired (or maybe they visited the booze camper). They could have killed people! We hope nobody was harmed during this accident.
Rednecks get a bad rap, but they sure know how to have fun. We would definitely go camping with this crew. The hot tub is so bad it’s good!
What is with the toilets? This one isn’t even a toilet! It’s just a toilet seat covered in camo. Maybe the creator thought it would make users invisible.
Is this a camping trip or a trip to a lunatic asylum in 1950? We have no idea what is going on here. We aren’t sure if she does either.
This camper is so cute. But why is it parked under a bridge? Weird camping location, but okay!
A lot to take in
There is a lot to unpack in this picture. It has suspenders, a bowl cut, a 120-year-old man in a bathtub, and a dead raccoon draped over the clothesline. What is going on?
Duct tape fixes anything
We cannot tell if this is a camping trip or fraternity hazing. This poor guy is duct taped to a tree! At least he has a beer!
Between the makeshift toilets, the aggressive animals, and the floods, we think we will pass on a camping trip for now.
