The Camping Must Have Checklist

Camping Checklist

Whether you're are interested in sleeping under the stars, or using a traditional tent, it's always a good idea to keep an eye to what the short term weather forecast will be. Despite the fact that you can still have fun camping when it does rain, you still want to make sure the weather is appropriate for your next camping adventure. Regardless of whether or not you are sleeping with a tent, you will need a sleeping bag or blanket. Additional sleeping equipment would include pillows and the ever popular air mattress.

Once you have these essential items ready for your next camping trip, you can move on to the important item on the Must Have Checklist. That is of course, the Food. What many campers enjoy about camping is eating outdoors. There is something out cooking food on the open fire that just makes even the most ordinary food taste especially great. The type of food you cook should all depend on your preference and the preference of the other campers.

In addition to a full dinner meal, you may also want to think about having snacks on hand. There are a large number of snacks that are ideal for campers. These snacks may include, dry fruit, chips, pretzels, cookies, and other dry foods. Be aware of your selections because a lot of dry snacks are unhealthy. Look for dry snacks that are low in sugar or low in fat. Of course don't forget the most important camping snack, s'mores.

The last item on the Must Have camping list are outdoor toys. These toys may include water guns, water balloons, a kickball, a Frisbee, baseball equipment, or other similar items. Even if these items do not get used, they are still nice to have on hand. Even though there may be many activities planned, such as fishing, canoeing, swimming, etc., it's great to have a fairly large selection of outdoor activities to choose from which will help to ensure that boredom is a never something that happens when you plan effectively for your next camping adventure.
