Do you find any inappropriately dressed people while camping?

    ...I just realized...I've never really camped with women.

    In terms of the guys I've never seen anything inappropriate - we are experience trippers and sufficiently well off to enable us to purchase proper attire.

    I don't know what the intention of Profit5500 in asking the question; he's never been camping. :sorry:

    This thread is, strange..

    I've seen people inappropriately dressed, prominently women.. Been camping with woman who'll put makeup on in the morning but that isn't all that strange, is it?
    I'll skinny dip without question or thought but never encountered someone skinny dipping. Closest I came was stumbling upon two teen aged males getting fairly intimate while I was trying to get a better angle for a photo of a waterfall.

    Many cosmetics are up to SPF 50 and are a pretty good sun screen, so putting on makeup when camping isn't that unusual.

    Honestly, if they are camping, then its not considering "inappropriately dressed" unless they are naked. They are there to have fun, why should they have to keep layers of clothes on and be miserably hot, just so people don't see them as a sexual object. I know tons of women who wear bikinis 90% of their time camping. With the heat as hot as it has been, I can't say I blame them.

    It was not a typical campsite but one that has no facilities. Located by the side of the water dam, that campsite is heavily patronized during weekends. There were many times that I have seen campers there wearing shorts and sando and there were even some who were half-naked as if they are in their terrace. And on their way back home, they have developed rashes on their skin. I never dare to point that out to strangers, I just watch them have their time in the forest with their shorts and skimpy shirts while I with my long sleeves and denim pants.

    I've lived a sheltered life. I don't recall ever seeing people wearing cloths that seemed to me to be inappropriate. I'm trying to recall something I could even mention, failing that, I guess I lose the award for shocking stories! Lol, well that isn't do bad.

    It all depends at what level you are in terms of your experience. Denim has been mentioned several times. The reality is it's never recommended for serious camping. Denim doesn't keep your warm, takes ages to dry if it becomes wet, attracts mosquitoes and other flesh biting insects and other than being a possible fashion statement has no other attributes.

    I suppose that could be call inappropriate for the conditions.

    I wonder though - what was the real intention of the original question?

    Sounds condescending to me. I've worn denim in one form or other for over 40+ years I'm no rookie, lets see, my record is -45°F with a wind chill of -65°F in the mountains of Idaho. My highs are 118°F with a low at night of 96° in Oklahoma. Not to mention everything in between. Only once did I ever question wearing denim. The only time I didn't enjoy my experience involved a bear, nothing to do with what I was wearing. By the way, I don't sleep in heated tents when I'm out in cold conditions and I don't have fans blowing in the hotter conditions. I'm serious about camping not glamping.

    it's all in the style - what you are accustomed to, how you have been trained, and comfort level. I too winter camp in tents designed for four seasons without the stove - though my sleeping bag is designed for semi arctic conditions. :)

    Wow. Well -45 Forget it! 96 at night shoowee to hot for me. I have camped during hot and miserable nights, and I didn't like the sweaten. Skeeters couldn't get a grip amongst all the sweat dripping off me. To hard core for me.

    You might want to try winter camping, if you haven't already. So you can say you have done it. I frequently put two regular sleeping bags together with an insert. Trying to control the temperature inside a sleeping bag can be tricky. The insert increases the temp of the bag and yet at the same time keeps it clean. Far easier to wash in insert than clean a bag - it doesn't come cheap.

    I do want to try winter camping but -45 no way. As far as inappropriate clothing haven't seen to much. Maybe bad choices of shoes for hiking and I have gotten mooned a couple of times by friends.

    I never experienced going camping with someone who wear inappropriate clothes. Usually, men and women wear either shorts or pants and rubber shoes because it's more comforting. However, there is this one girl who was my colleague when I was still working in an office and she told us that they are going camping and it would be her first time and didn't know what to wear. Well we told her to wear a casual one like shirts and shorts or pants and rubber shoes, whichever is comfy for her. Then after a few days, she said their camping was horrible because she wasn't able to hike properly because she was wearing a high cut boots with a 4 inches heels. Didn't know what she was thinking :(
