Camping Quotes On Signs & Prints
“The Mountains Are Calling And I Must Go”
This is one of the most inspirational and famous camping quotes by John Muir and every time I hear “The Mountains Are Calling And I Must Go”, I think … YES, yes, I do! It seems to come up more often when I am having a rough day at the office! As a matter of fact, I hear the mountains calling right now! LOL 😉

“Welcome To Our Place In The Woods. Take Nothing But Pictures. Leave Nothing But Footprints. Kill Nothing But Time.”
We don’t have “a” place in the woods, we have many because wherever we are camping, we are at home in the woods! This is one of those quotes about camping with friends that makes you smile as it welcomes them to your little slice of heaven! “Welcome To Our Place In The Woods. Take Nothing But Pictures. Leave Nothing But Footprints. Kill Nothing But Time.” is a gentle reminder to kick back, relax and tread lightly while in the woods with your friends and family.
“Sleep Under The Stars”
Why is it that when we were kids we didn’t think it was crazy to sleep under the stars but as adults, it seems like the responsibilities of life take over our thinking? Well, I just love the reminder in these prints to “Sleep Under The Stars” whether you like camping in a tent or RV … Let’s just go!
“Oh Darling Let’s Be Adventurers”
This camping quote, “Oh Darling Let’s Be Adventurers”, makes me think of Audrey Hepburn and Zsa Zsa Gábor. Of course, it also makes me want to glamp instead of camp! I find glamping so inspirational that we tend to make up our own camping with friends quotes as we soak our feet in a warm, soapy foot bath during our DIY pedicure glam camping afternoons! If you need glamping tips, you can find them in my Cute Glamping Accessories And DIY Glam Camping Ideas And Tips post!
“I Don’t Care How Long It Takes, I’m Going Somewhere Beautiful”
Isn’t it just awesome when someone overcomes a big obstacle in life?!?! For some of us Type-A people, that challenge can be taking time off to just relax, leave the to-do list at the office and go experience something beautiful! This “I Don’t Care How Long It Takes, I’m Going Somewhere Beautiful” inspirational camping quote makes me say … Count Me In!
“Simplicity Is The Ultimate Sophistication”
Can you see me nodding my head right now? I think one of the things that attracts me to camping is the simplicity of it all. Leaving the city in the rear-view mirror for a few days of camping is my idea of putting this “Simplicity Is The Ultimate Sophistication” inspirational camping quote into action.
Occasionally you just need to “Explore” … period … end of story! 🙂 Sometimes the simplest quotes about camping are the most powerful!
“Be Brave Run Free And Stay Wild”
As our culture gets more technologically advanced, my heart is crying out “Be Brave Run Free And Stay Wild”! It is also one of my favorite family camping quotes to share with kids as they turn their eyes away from computer screens and towards the stars in the sky. 🙂
“A Bonfire Is Basically Just A Nightclub In The Mountains”
The first time I heard this funny camping quote, “A Bonfire Is Basically Just A Nightclub In The Mountains”, it took a few minutes before it registered with me. Maybe because it has been a really long time since I hung out in a nightclub and at this point in my life I would rather be listening to crickets and looking at the moon than listening to a subwoofer and looking at a disco ball!
“Live Laugh Camp”
This camping quote is simple but still mentally transports me to my favorite campsite just by saying these three little words … “Live Laugh Camp” … I just love that! ♥
“Camping rules. Visit with friends. Enjoy nature. Sit by the fire. Make s’mores. Have a cold drink. Take a hike. Enjoy the sunrise & sunset.”
This quote about camping with friends makes me smile because I can visualize these exact things (even when I am sitting in front of my computer screen in the middle of the city!) “Camping rules. Visit with friends. Enjoy nature. Sit by the fire. Make s’mores. Have a cold drink. Take a hike. Enjoy the sunrise & sunset.” Don’t you just wanna go camping right now?!?!
“Camping rules. Stare at the fire. Listen to the birds. Jump in the lake. Read. Take a nap. Relax. Watch the sunset. Cook over the fire. Breathe the fresh air.”
This “Camping rules. Stare at the fire. Listen to the birds. Jump in the lake. Read. Take a nap. Relax. Watch the sunset. Cook over the fire. Breathe the fresh air.” wall plaque has a special place in my heart because I think the cute campers are just adorable and because cooking over the fire is one of my favorite camping activities!
This is by far the longest camping quote here but it is one of my favorites because I think it is so true that when so much beauty surrounds us, we have to be deliberate to absorb it fully. “Fresh beauty opens one’s eyes wherever it is really seen but the very abundance and completeness of the common beauty that besets our steps prevents its being absorbed and appreciated. It is a good thing, therefore, to make short excursions now and then to the bottom of the sea among dulse and coral or up among the clouds on mountain-tops or in balloons, or even to creep like worms into dark holes and caverns underground not only to learn something of what is going on in those out-of-the-way places but to see better what the sun sees on our return to common everyday beauty.”
“Leave Nothing But Footprints, Take Nothing But Pictures, Waste Nothing But Time.”
The message of this camping quote is one I want to yell at the top of my lungs when we pull into a campsite that the previous campers left all messy. One of my biggest pet peeves is finding other people’s trash, bottle tops, food wrappers etc. laying around a campsite. Would you please help me spread the word? … “Leave Nothing But Footprints, Take Nothing But Pictures, Waste Nothing But Time.”
Camping Quotes On Decals & Stickers
“Not All Those Who Wander Are Lost”
Aimlessly wandering through daily life is a no-no, but wandering in the wilderness is encouraged! I love the peaceful experience and slower pace camping provides. It is during those experiences I say “Not All Those Who Wander Are Lost” and head out for a bit of wilderness wandering. This is one of the most famous camping quotes and one of the most loved too! 🙂
“Go Play Outside”
As a kid I remember playing outside all of the time. Riding bicycles, building forts, catching butterflies … you know … normal kid stuff. Now, as an adult, I need to make time to “Go Play Outside”, and when I do, I am soooooo happy I did!
“Camping. Family. Smores. Fishing. Fun. Hiking.”
Yes times 6! Who knew six little words could make one of the cutest family camping quotes to adorn a wall?!?! “Camping. Family. Smores. Fishing. Fun. Hiking.” Oh, and speaking of smores, if you need some new ideas for the old favorite campfire dessert, check out our Campfire Smores Recipes: 10 Mouth-Watering Smore Variations blog post! And, yes, Tropical Therapy is still my favorite version! 😉
“Keep Calm And Camp On”
To be completely honest with you, I’m sorta tired of the whole ‘Keep calm and —fill in the blank— on’ craze EXCEPT for this one! I don’t know about you but camping really does help me to stay calm! That’s why I love this “Keep Calm And Camp On” camping quote!
Camping Quotes On Coffee Mugs
“I’m A Tent Pitchin’, Wiener Roastin’, S’more Makin’, Lake Lovin’, Camping Kinda Girl!”
Some girls are totally into fashion and others are into outdoor experiences. I can honestly say I’m proud that “I’m A Tent Pitchin’, Wiener Roastin’, S’more Makin’, Lake Lovin’, Camping Kinda Girl!” and my husband would second that! This is one of the best tent camping quotes for girly girls who love camping!
“Just Another Coffee Drinker With A Camping Problem”
Camping and coffee … I can’t have one without the other! And, for some odd reason, my coffee tastes better at the campsite … It must be the scenery! So this “Just Another Coffee Drinker With A Camping Problem” is one of those funny camping quotes that really speaks to me! 😉

Camping Quotes On Barware

“Just Another Wine Drinker With A Camping Problem”
Some campers like a chilled lemonade, others prefer an icy cold beer but there is still another group that wants to pop a cork and sip a little vino at the campsite. For that group, the “Just Another Wine Drinker With A Camping Problem” camping quote is the perfect message on a wine glass!
“Another Day In Paradise”
We use this “Another Day In Paradise” camping quote often (when we are camping, of course!) There is just something about being totally unplugged without the need for a clock that makes my relaxation level while camping incomparable to any other activity I have experienced.
Camping Quotes On Kitchen, Bedroom & Bath Items
“Camp, Hike, Cook, Drink, Eat, Repeat”
I’m glad I don’t have to pick one favorite camping activity! It’s just a whole lot easier doing all of my favorites over and over again! My husband and I don’t always agree on the order but we do agree on the list which means we might have to flip a coin to decide the priorities of the day to “Camp, Hike, Cook, Drink, Eat, Repeat” 🙂 Oh, a quick tip … Don’t ever fall for the “heads I win, tales you lose” coin toss gimmick!
“I Love Camping. Life Is Good In The Woods”
We just LOVE living in Arizona because we get to camp all year long! We have an elevation for every season within a few hours of driving from our home in Phoenix … but … our absolute favorite is Camping In National Forests and especially on the Mogollon Rim! That’s why the “I Love Camping. Life Is Good In The Woods” camping quote makes us happy!
“Home Is Anyplace I’m With You”
One of the best parts of camping is spending time and making memories with friends and family! The “Home Is Anyplace I’m With You” camping quote could not be more true and it gives me a warm and fuzzy feeling inside!
“Home Is Where You Park It”
We have a tent and an RV which we have made cozy … just like home! Whenever we are exploring a new destination, we always feel at home because “Home Is Where You Park It” … literally! In fact, when we have out-of-town guests visiting our real home, we use our RV as a temporary backyard guest house and everyone seems to want first dibs on sleeping in the trailer!
“Let’s Go Camping”
It’s short, sweet and to the point so I say we just take the recommendation and “Let’s Go Camping” … Are you with me?
Camping Quotes On Wearable Items
“Every Camper Knows…If Your Shoes Are Smokin’ Back Away From The Campfire”
If you have been camping more than once in your lifetime, I’m guessing that you have seen someone warming their feet by the fire for a little too long and then … woosh … their shoes start to smoke!!!! Another person notices and says, “Hey Einstein, your shoes are going to catch fire” and the event ends in a dance in the dirt to cool down the shoes and avoid disaster. I’m not naming any names but one of our favorite campers resembles this “Every Camper Knows…If Your Shoes Are Smokin’ Back Away From The Campfire” funny camping quote!
“Camp, Hike, Cook, Drink, Eat, Repeat”
When I get asked, “Do you like to camp?” My answer is, YES! Not only that, I like to “Camp, Hike, Cook, Drink, Eat, Repeat” and if you can’t remember my favorite things to do, just read my shirt! 😉
“Pull Out All The Stops”
My husband and I decided we needed to get out of life’s rat-race and enjoy the journey rather than being focused on the destination (you know, we’ll relax when we retire someday). As a recovering workaholic … that is easier said that done. Camping is our solution to “Pull Out All The Stops” and live a balanced yet dream-pursuing life. We hope you will join us and enjoy the journey.
Here’s what we believe … We believe people are consumed with their 24/7 connected lives prohibiting them from taking time to truly connect with people, live in the moment, follow dreams and enjoy nature. We encourage people to take a look at their lives from a different perspective and ask themselves “Is this the life I really want to live?” We dare you to Pull Out All The Stops and conquer your dreams! We hope to see you on the trail camping, hiking, cooking, eating and making the most of your life. Pull Out All The Stops® and Camping For Foodies® would love to have you join our movement!
Camping Quotes On Fun Gear
“Camping Hair Dont Care”
Some of the worst hair days happen on THE BEST CAMPING DAYS! When you can use the “Camping Hair Don’t Care” funny camping quote (and really mean it), you know you are in the zone!
This is the “code word” we use when we are camping to say “Sorry, I just can’t help you with that right now.” The “I’m Unplugging” quote goes a long way to make sure the camping trip stays light, fun and a work-free zone. My fellow recovering workaholics will understand the need for this one! 😉 It’s especially helpful when relaxing in a hammock that can speak for you!
“Home Is Where The Welcome Mat Is”
Drive, park, camp and put out the welcome mat for new friends and life-long ones. The “Home Is Where The Welcome Mat Is” camping quote is a favorite with weekend RV campers as well as full-timers who don’t let any grass grow under their home on wheels!
I wonder where the old “Happy Camper” quote came from? Who knows! It has been around FOREVER and somebody learned the secret that camping can make you happy. I’m glad the secret got out and I have joined the ranks of being one! 🙂
“I’d Rather Be Camping”
Who me? Yes, I resemble the “I’d Rather Be Camping” quote! Now that I have shared my favorite camping quotes on cool gear, it’s time for me to quit talking and head for the mountains! Time to go camping!
