If you're a lover of outdoor adventures, you've probably heard of ice camping. This activity involves sleeping in portable pop-up hub houses and shelters on the frozen water, and it's a great way to experience the beauty of winter landscapes. However, to make your trip as comfortable and safe as possible, it's important to pack the right gear.

10 Essentials for Ice Camping

  1. Shelter - An Otter Hub House or similar shelter is a must-have for ice camping. It will keep you warm and protected from the elements.

  2. Flooring - Interlocking foam flooring will help keep your feet warm and dry by providing insulation from the cold ice beneath you.

  3. Heater - A portable heater is essential for keeping your shelter warm and comfortable during the cold winter nights.

  4. Lighting - Bring a lantern or other light source to make it easier to move around your shelter during the dark hours.

  5. Sleeping Gear - A cot, sleeping bag, and pillow will help you get a good night's sleep in the cold.

  6. Carbon Monoxide Detector - Any time you're using a portable heater, it's essential to have a carbon monoxide detector to ensure your safety.

  7. Food - Bring enough pre-planned meals, snacks, and bottled water to last your entire trip.

  8. Warm Clothing - Bring extra warm layers, hats, gloves, and boots to keep you warm and comfortable in the cold.

  9. Snow Shovel - A snow shovel will come in handy for clearing snow away from your shelter or campsite.
