Camping is a great way to get outside with family and friends or even by yourself. You can go camping in many state and national parks, at private campgrounds, in the backcountry or even in your own backyard.
Most campsites include a picnic table, a place to park your car and a spot to pitch your tent. Many also have shared bathrooms and running water.
What to Bring Camping
If it’s your first time camping, it might be best to borrow or rent some of these things.
- Sleeping Bags
- Sleeping Pads
- Plenty of Food
- Weather-appropriate Clothing
- Hygiene & Medical Essentials
Part of the joy of camping is needing very little gear to exist outdoors. But, it’s also nice to have a comfortable, convenient and homey campsite. As you become a more experienced camper, you may find that part of the fun is figuring out what to bring along to meet your needs.
