Nov 12, 2007
Finding discount camping supplies for your next camping trip is easier than you may think. Especially today, what the Internet should be much easier. You'll find many vendors carrying a wide variety of discount camping supplies at competitive prices.

One of the most important items for your camping trip would be a nice cozy sleeping bag. When camping in cold weather, you want a sleeping bag that fits snug to the body to keep you warm and retain your body heat within the material. It may also be wise to purchase either an inflating pad or a foam sleeping pad. These items can make the difference between a good night sleep and a sleepless night if the ground is hard and cold.

Purchasing a lantern can be very important for your camping trip. Most lanterns are powered by propane gas, which is mostly an expensive. Ensure that you do not store your gas canisters anywhere near an open flame. Another good lantern is the battery powered lantern.

And if you're going to an area that may have some rainy and bad weather you may want to consider purchasing a tent. Extra tent stakes should be a must on your list of tent supplies. Stakes seem to bend and break quiet often when trying to set up your tent. You may also consider buying some extra string and possibly an extra tent pole or maybe two.

Ensure that you bring plenty of protective clothing with you. Always prepare for the worst. A vinyl Poncho can come in very handy in a rainstorm. Ensure that you bring a warm jacket, a pair of warm glow and a nice hood or knit cap can make all the difference when camping in cold weather.

You may want to check to see if the area that you are going to camp in will allow you to have a fire on the ground. Many campsites band camp fires due to possible brushfires. If this is the case you may want to consider purchasing a grill. You can find many grills that are powered by propane just like your lantern. These grills will make fine meals if used properly.

Ensure that your discount camping supplies list includes the necessary cookware. You want to ensure that you have a skillet and plenty of plates and utensils. Another very important piece of cookware is your coffee pot for that morning shot a coffee.

Ensure that you bring plenty of mosquito repellent. A mosquito attack can make a night of camping very uncomfortable. There are alternatives to repellent such as a mosquito net or a head net.

If you plan on doing any hiking while you are camping, you may want to consider purchasing a sturdy and comfortable backpack. Do not feel like you have to purchase a huge mountain pack, just buy a bag tag large enough to carry the necessary gear. Another item that is very handy when hacking that comes in the form of a backpack is a hydration pack.

A compass can be a lifesaver if becoming disoriented on a hike or while camping. Do not depend on you are a personal ability to navigate. Even the most expert guides and hikers become disoriented and lost at times. So, keep that safety net in the form of compass in place. It may save you some day.
