Camping Essentials

This summer, I did my fair share of camping. From Havasupai to Zion to Big Sur, we had some adventures that were definitely made easier and more enjoyable by the fact that we were able to camp close to such beautiful sites in nature. Don't get me wrong, I love a good hotel, but I've experienced firsthand the reward that can come when you sacrifice a little bit of comfort for REAL natural surroundings. While I'm still no expert, I've put together a list of essentials that I've found quite useful while camping and hiking. I hope you'll find this useful. And, if you have any camping essentials that you'd add to this list, please let me know!

Ah - great post and items! Baby wipes or makeup remover wipes help me feel a tad more clean. Always frustrated when I forget them!

Great post! One must really be prepared when going camping by using the best quality gear around. I don't buy cheap products that may endanger my life, after all, when you're in the woods, anything goes. Only buy gear from trusted brands, and avoid cheap knock-offs! Being prepared is an understatement; one must invest in great camping essentials like the ones here http://myoutdoorslife.com/gear/camping-and-hiking/camping-essentials.html
