Purchase a spare battery
Purchase a spare battery, and bring it along with you on the trip. Swap it out when your cellphone battery loses its charge. Charge the spare battery ahead of time as batteries lose their charge during storage.
Plug into a portable power source
Plug your cellphone into a portable power source while camping. Portable power sources use size-A batteries, and let you charge your cellphone through an AC plug or a USB plug.
Crank a wind-up charger
Crank a wind-up charger and plug in your cellphone. If you don't have access to batteries while on your camping trip, use your own physical strength to charge your phone.
Camp near an outlet
Camp in a park that is RV accessible. These parks usually provide electrical hookups and adapters so you can use them to plug in your phone.
