Preparing for a Camping Trip: 8 Things You Should Pack

By    |   Tuesday, 28 June 2016 02:53 PM EDT

When preparing for a camping trip, it’s important to strike a balance between bringing so much gear it will end up getting in your way and neglecting necessities you will actually need.

Here is a list of items you should pack when going on a camping trip.

1. Warm clothes. Even if the forecast is for very hot weather, it can get cold at night and the weather can change suddenly and unexpectedly. It’s best to be prepared, Reserve America suggests.

2. Extra clothes and rain gear. Although some campgrounds have laundry facilities, you will typically need to rely on the sun to dry your clothes if they get wet, and many a camping trip has been made miserable by cold, wet clothing.

3. Trash bags. Of course you will remember to bring food on your trip, but many people forget trash bags to get rid of plates, paper towels, and other trash.

4. Lighter or matches. Sure, you could rub two sticks together to make a cooking fire, but it may be best to conserve your energy for hiking or putting up your tent.

5. Cell phone car charger. For a few days, you may be fine without a charger, but for longer trips, you will probably need your cell phone to communicate with the outside world or for an emergency.

6. First aid kit. It’s important to keep even minor cuts or scrapes clean and covered to prevent infection, and first aid kits often contain other useful items like insect repellent and sunscreen that you may need, says The Road Map.

7. Flashlight and extra batteries. The woods get really dark at night, and it will greatly limit your mobility and safety if you don’t have a flashlight.

8. Solar or hand-cranked radio. Especially on extended camping trips, a radio can provide warnings about storms coming to the area or provide music to lighten your evening.
