We use a simple type of dome tent, shown without the flysheet on the adjacent photo. A lightweight mattress and a sheet sleeping bag are sufficient for comfortable sleeping. A full sleeping bag is not required. The ground is fairly soft everywhere but, if necessary, a layer of leaves can be placed under the tent. We have tried hammocks, but it takes more work to hang them correctly and not everyone can lie in them comfortably.
