Camping Equipment Checklist - A Must- Have If You Are Going For Camping

Nov 29, 2007
The camping equipment checklist is the basis of all camping trips. To ensure that none of your important equipment gets left behind and your trip is relaxed, this checklist is a must. With the large number of people professing to be camping experts sprouting on the internet, there is a common vein that is running through the words of all these experts. They all advise that starting your camping trip off with the camping equipment checklist is the only way to ensure its success.

This checklist ensures that you are aware of, and have made arrangements for everything that you need for your camping trip. This list depends entirely on your needs and your requirements and hence cannot be followed to the T by all people. However, there is a generalized checklist of camping equipment that is essential for all, for a camping trip. This list would have to undergo modifications if you are thinking of RV camping or a sailing trip. This list basically consists of the following items:

- A tent or tents (depending upon the number of people)
- Sleeping pads
- Sleeping bags
- Backpacks
- Warm clothing
- Water carrier
- Cooking equipment and eating utensils
- A dutch oven, a portable grill or any other cooking equipment
- Matches
- Food items
- Tin opener
- A torch or an electric lantern
- Spare batteries
Comfortable walking shoes

This list is by no means exhaustive. So there are many more things you might think of adding to this list. In fact, you will also have to make additions to this list depending on what the weather is like when you go for camping. You will have to carry a hot water bottle and extra warm clothes and blankets if it is cold outside. You can have a tent attic to store your extra equipment. This tent attic can be attached to your tent's roof. Also, the activities you are going to engage in during your camp will also determine any additional equipment you might have to carry along with you. For example, you will need to carry a fishing tackle if you are planning to go fishing. A first-aid kit along with some over the counter painkillers should be an intrinsic part of your gear, no matter where you go for your trip.

Nothing can be more of a horror than reaching your campsite and realizing that you have forgotten to bring along an important piece of your camping equipment, especially if there are no shops nearby. So, to ensure that you do not have to go through this harrowing experience, and to enjoy your excursion without any tension or stress, making your own camping equipment checklist is the way to go. You can in fact even find out if you have got everything back from camp by ticking off the items as you keep unpacking them on your return back home, so that you can store both this list and the equipment carefully for your next camping trip.
