Camping is a great way for you and your family to commune with nature. Whether or not you stay in a campground, sleeping outside beside a mountain lake or in a forest can be a liberating experience.
There’s just nothing else quite like it. Now with all the modern camping equipment available, like solar showers or tent heaters, camping is an adventure for any time of the year.
No matter what season you choose, it can still be a lot of work. Once you know where you are going, you need to get all your camping gear and supplies together and packed into your vehicle.
Don’t forget, this includes coolers and food totes; you’ll also need to plan your meals ahead. Then, upon arriving at your destination, it’s time to unpack and set up camp.
There’s way more to setting up camp than just putting up a tent and it’s easy to forget something. Even experienced campers often forget to pack something and first timers may not be aware of what all is needed.
To make things easier for you, we’ve put together this list of what to bring on a camping trip:
Camping is an activity that everyone should try at least once. It’s an awesome way to get up close and personal with nature. Every season has it’s beauty; all you have to do is pick one.
Now that you know what to bring on a camping trip, you can concentrate on the fun stuff knowing you’re prepared.
Your list can also be used as a checklist when packing up to leave. Always do a final ”walk-through” before you hit the road and look all around the campsite. You don’t want to leave anything behind.
In fact, have everyone do it, and chances are you won’t. Here’s one last bit of advice: make sure someone knows exactly where you will be camping, your tag number and vehicle description, and how long you’ll be staying.
It’s just a good idea. Be safe and have fun camping!
