What other items do I need to take with me camping?
Some Items you may want to bring with you when camping
can include, but are not limited to a hatchet, portable
hammock, map of the area, chairs, water, insect repellent,
sunscreen and pet gear.
The list goes on and on but these are the items that can make your camping experience the best it can be. A hatchet is great for rustic camping when you may have to scavenge for your own firewood. Portable hammocks are great for lounging during the day or even sleeping in at night. Also, kids love hammocks and can give them somewhere to hang out during the day. A map of the area can give you ideas on activities to do or can help you get your bearings if you wander too far from camp. Camping chairs range from small and portable to large and extravagant but no matter the style or design, having a place to sit at the end of the day is not something to overlook. Water, this one is very important. If the campground has no running water you will want to bring a good supply and if the campground has running water you will want to bring a jug to transport. Insect repellent and sunscreen can really make your camping trip more enjoyable. When it comes to sunscreen it’s good to know that even an overcast day or a sunny day in the dead of winter can give you sun damage so always protect yourself. Pet gear for camping will include a quality leash tie out, bowls for food and water, a pack for backpacking, a cooling vest, or even a life vest for dogs going for a swim.
