First Wintery Camping

This week we are heading down to Brown County state park by Nashville Indiana. We do this trip every year since it is about 250 miles south from where we live and is usually 10+ degrees warmer then by us in northern Illinois. Usually it is 45 to 50 degrees by us this time of year and usually 60 degrees in Brown County. Not this year they are only predicting the temps to be mid 40's at best and 6-9 inches of snow Sunday(tomorrow)....what???? Are we going, yes, are we excited, yes, are we crazy, ?????

I used to camp all the in my old camper during winter, we just used electric heaters since I was plugged in, and I had 12 gallons of fresh water I used for flushing and drinking, it wasn all good.

I always wanted to go winter camping and never have. Something about the smell of coffee and bacon in a camper with snow outside. I bet it won't be crowded, so you'll hear nature all around you and have a lot of room.
Pack your snow clothes and take hikes, build a snowman, and make snow angels. Go back in camper and smell coffee again, perhaps hot chocolate too! I'd be excited.
One consideration is moisture. Presumably, you'll be inside more and exhaling creates moisture indoors. I would suggest this all the time...but esp. if in a lot with humid conditions....get some moisture absorbing stuff. I use this:
Damp Rid Refillable Moisture Absorber - Best Price
