Camping Essentials - Campsite
when I first thought of starting camping, I didn’t know where to start. After doing my research and started collecting my camping essentials, I started compiling a list of my camping essentials. After 2 years of camping, I still use this list to make sure I don’t miss anything before setting on my camping trip. I want to share my list of campsite essentials and recommendations as well for first time campers.
Tent: Tent is the first thing that comes to mind when thinks of camping. Invest in a good tent depending on how often you plan on camping and for how many persons. An all season tent is recommended to camp throughout the year. Check this beautiful Coleman Sundome Tent.
Air mattress/Sleeping Pad and Air Pump: You want to sleep on something in your tent and it depends on your personal preference. I started with air mattress but after a couple use, they always stark leaking and I switched to sleeping pad. Most time the mattresses come with the pumps. Here is my recommendation. Check this Wellax Ultra Thick FlexFoam Sleeping Pad.
Blankets / Sleeping Bag: Make sure to carry a sleeping bag or blanket depending on weather conditions. Here is my recommendation. Here is my recommendation.
Pillow: I always carry my pillows with me for a good nights sleep.
Folding Chair: Most campsites have chair and table but I always carry my comfortable folding chairs on my camping trips. Check this Coleman Quad Chair.
Folding Table: Most campsites also have tables but I keep my folding table with me in case I don’t find a campsite and have to do dispersed camping. I highly recommend this Lifetime Height Adjustable Table.
Lantern: You definitely need a good lantern to light your campsite at night. Check this 2 Pack Vont LED Lantern.
Torch: This comes in handy at night. I keep both handheld and headlamp. Check this tactical LED light.
Power bank: Invest in a good charging bank to charge all your electronics. Pay attention to the capacity of the bank and your charging needs. Here is a good one.
Multi-tool: I use it for tent setup mostly and keep this with me at all times. Here is my favorite one.
Batteries: I keep extra batteries for my air pump, torch lights and lantern.
Sitting sheet: I keep a sitting sheet in case the ground is dirty or I need to put anything on the ground. Most of the times I use a tarp.
Speaker, headphones and charger: Don’t forget to keep your speaker for campsite fun, headphones for hiking and chargers to keep your devices ready.
Beach towel: I carry a beach towel all the time in case I jump into water in a stream, waterfall or even on the beach.
Backpack and clothes: I carry a small backpack for snacks and extra clothing for hiking purposes.
Tarp: I lay it under my tent and also use it for sitting on the ground or to cover things.
Tent Repair Kit: I keep tent repair kit for emergencies in case my tent doesn’t stay sturdy.
Enjoy a beautiful day out in the nature and don’t worry about missing anything.
