What Supplies do You Really Need for Camping?
If you have never gone camping before, or perhaps it has been awhile, you may be wondering what to pack to take with you on your trip. You don’t want to over pack, yet you are worried that you are going to forget something essential that you are definitely going to miss. Don’t worry, below you will find a list of essential camping supplies that you will want to bring along with you on any camping trip. Take a look below to determine the best way to decide what you need and what you don’t.
How Long Will You Be Staying?
These are two things that will make it easier for you to decide what to pack. Consider what amenities your campground offers if any as well as the length of days that you will be camping. If you are going on a two week vacation to the lake to stay in a cabin; obviously you are going to need much more clothes than if you were only camping for the weekend. If the facilities have laundry available, you can also pack minimally and simply wash your clothes at the laundry facility of the campground you plan to stay at.
Make a List & Check it Twice
When you have an upcoming camping trip planned, take inventory of the things you already have and those that you don’t. Make a list of the things that you are either running low on or out of altogether so that you can collect the items you need before the big trip. Do this a month or two before your trip and you will have plenty of time to pick up the things you need at your convenience.
Consider the Size of Your Car When Packing
While you may be tempted to bring half of your house with you on your camping trip, chances are you will not be able to fit everything into your car unless you minimize the things you needs. Consider the size of your luggage and the amount of space in your trunk and/or backseat in order to help you decide what really needs to go with and what items you can do without.
