85 Creative Camping Instagram Captions to Use With Your Outdoorsy Pics

Women on a camping trip

In my house, camping is on our wishlist year-round. However, I’ll admit that I’m more of a glamper than a “roughing it” in the woods type of camper. For many of us, camping isn’t just an activity. It’s a great way to take a break from life, spend time in nature and create new memories with our loved ones. It’s also a great excuse to try out new camping Instagram captions to share our journey.

Planning a camping trip may be the most stressful part of the whole experience, but once everyone is settled, the stress seems to melt away once we breathe in the fresh air. And no camping trip is complete without the fireside scary stories, car sing-a-longs and snacks.

As with most trips, most of us share our highlights on Instagram. Whether you’re pitching a tent, camping in luxury (my pick!) or parking your RV near a picturesque body of water, capturing these moments for social media is a must nowadays. “Pics or it didn't happen," right?

I would hate for you to be without some clever sayings to show off your campfire recipes, nature shots or goofy poses with family members. We rounded up 85 Instagram captions about camping that are a mix of humor, inspiration, a nod to nature and even some camping song lyrics.

These camping captions are bound to capture your outdoor summer adventures so you can boost your online engagement. Happy travels, and don’t forget the bug spray!
