9 Essentials You’ll Need for Your Next Camping Trip!

Camping

Camping in the great outdoors is one of the greatest ways to get a nice touch of nature. It usually costs next to nothing to get a plot of land to stay overnight on, so you’re going to save so much money compared to staying in traditional hotels. Plus, there’s something super nice about getting to sleep under the stars, hearing the crickets chirping, the fire crackling, and the rustle of grass.  Camping is relaxing and it’s a fun way to stay well on the road when doing road trips. 

While camping is fantastic, you will need a few essentials, maybe more than what you’d expect from your traditional trip/overnight hotel stay. So what will you need for this nature-filled trip? What are you going to need to ensure that you’re well-stocked? Here’s what you need to know!

Tent

Make sure you choose a tent that’s sturdy against the wind and has multiple zippers. It is also useful to have a tent that is waterproof or at least water resistant. Lastly, don’t forget to check out the instructions to ensure that all the pieces to set up the tent are there.

Extra Batteries

Be sure to look through the belongings that you plan on taking and see whether or not you’re

going to need 18650 battery and charger kit. Did you pack a good flashlight with you too? While

the ones on phones are decent, they’re not that bright and effective compared to an actual flashlight.

First Aid Kit

Before you go out exploring the free activities mother nature has to offer, you can’t forget the first aid kit. An injury can hit at any time, illness can strike whenever. Always expect the unexpected and keep yourself prepared.  It’s a lot easier to buy a first aid kit that has everything already in it rather than going the DIY route.

Food and Water

This is something everyone is going to need during camping. Sure, some campers like to take it a bit far and hunt for their food and water, but do you really want to do that? It’s not very safe or sanitary. Instead, why not pack some food and water? Bring plenty of bottles and pack some food that doesn’t need a fridge such as a trail mix, nuts, dried fruit, chips, crackers, granola, and protein bars.

Multi-Tool

This diverse tool has many uses, from opening cans to cutting branches. For this reason, it really comes in

handy for camping. But these are mostly handy if you’re planning on doing some full-fledged camping.

Sleeping bag

You will want to spend some time thinking about your sleeping arrangements. Not only is a sleeping bag going to keep you warm, but this is also going to be that layer of protection against you and the hard ground. Sleeping under the stars in a lot better with a comfortable sleeping bag.

Power bank

You’re most likely going to use your phone during camping, right? Then it’s best to have one or more fully charged power banks with you. These will definitely come in handy if your phone is about to die. While they’re great for phones, you can use power banks for other electronics as well.

Sturdy backpack

There are many backpacks on the market today. You’re far better off having a good backpack that’s specifically meant for camping or hiking. These tend to have good resistance to weight, plus there are multiple pockets.

Lighter/Matches

If you plan on having a fire during camping then you’re far better off having some lighters and matches rather than making a fire the old fashion way. It takes far too much time and it usually doesn’t work out.

With these things in mind, you are sure to have a great camping trip. Take some time to choose the right gear before you leave. Your trip will be healthy safe when you plan ahead.
