I went camping recently in north Alabama and it was rainy and wet so my clothes ended up very damp and/or wet. How do you dry them when your primitive camping?

I’ve only had luck with a camp fire. I try to put some protection from rain over the clothes to be dried.  I have never been completely satisfied with this approach.

I've done that by hanging the clothes in my car.

another option is if the campground has a bathhouse.  You could hang them there though you would need to keep an eye on them otherwise they might disappear.

Yeah it sucks. Wring em out and hang em by the fire if it ever stops raining. Other than that, sleep nekkid, wring em out and then wear em dry the next day. The only thing I absolutely can't live with is wet socks so I bring 3 pairs with the 2 extras in a sandwich bag and try to dry them under my pack straps while I walk if possible.
