What is the Baldur’s Gate 3 camp?

The Baldur’s Gate 3 camp is a temporary shelter for you and your party.

You can invite various NPCs to stay here as companions, and some quests can only be advanced while you’re sleeping in the camp. The in-game timer advances when you use the Long Rest option at camp, so ensure you don’t have any time-sensitive quests active before you hunker down. A Long Rest restore your characters to full health and removes most negative Baldur’s Gate 3 status effects that might be slowing them down.

How do I set up the Baldur’s Gate 3 camp?

In order to set up the camp, you need to select the Long Rest option from the campfire icon on the right side of the UI. You need 40 Camp Supplies in order to set up the shelter, but once it’s done, you can freely walk around and interact with anyone who might be staying with you.

Now you know how the Baldur’s Gate 3 camp works, you can kick back and relax any time you like. Just keep the world-ending threat in mind, okay?
