Camping Gadgets You Must Have in Nature

The past year has certainly been filled with a lot of stress and uncertainty, and most of our travel plans had to be canceled, postponed or adjusted. Instead of hitting exotic beaches and island hopping (unless you live right next to these tropical destinations) we had to make the most of our local national parks, rivers and lakes. Honestly, many of us have seen more of our local natural beauties than ever before! So if you also just got into camping and want to get better at it, here are some camping gadgets you must have at hand when enjoying your next outdoor adventure. 

A proper tent

A proper camping tent is an absolute must. It protects you from the elements, provides you with privacy and gives you storage. When picking out your tent, always go a little bit bigger than you think you need (for instance, 3-person tent for a 2-person camping trip) so you have plenty of storage at your disposal. Otherwise, there are many different tent models, all with their pros and cons, so do your research before you buy and you’ll make a good decision for sure. 

Thermal underwear

Staying warm in nature is the biggest issue for some, especially during the night. So, make sure to invest in durable, skin-friendly and warm underwear. Something specially designed for camping will keep you toasty without limiting your mobility—you’ll be able to hike without issues yet stay warm during cold nights. 

First-aid kit

No matter if you’re fit as a fiddle or always sickly and clumsy, you will need to have a first-aid kit at hand. Grab one from the store and make sure it has antiseptic creams and ointments, as well as plenty of Band-Aids. If you have allergies, make sure to have some antihistamines in your kit. Sanitizer together with bandages and gauze is also vital for the safety and health of you and your band of campers. 

Knife

Nature can be tricky and knows how to surprise you at every corner. No matter where you live, you can potentially run into wildlife that’s not so friendly or come across some tricky terrain and natural obstacles on your hikes. Even though it’s rare that you’ll have to defend your camp or jump over some hurdles (usually everything goes smoothly) it happens. And when it happens, you want to be armed with some bear spray to deter predators. You also want to have a practical multifunctional tool such as a small switch blade knife which is great for many things. No matter if you’re cutting rope, cleaning out the terrain or handling food prep, your knife will be exceptionally useful. 

Portable cooler

You want to bring plenty of food and drink with you on your adventure (unless you’re ready to hunt and fish) and the quality of your trip may rely on the coolness of your supplies. So, depending on the length of your trip, you need an appropriate portable cooler. This inexpensive investment (you can find good coolers for around $30) will always come in handy, especially if you love to prepare home-cooked meals in nature. Make sure your cooler has enough space and don’t be lazy to check out reviews before you commit—a bad cooler will just be dead weight and you might risk losing all your food. 

Camping grill

Another must-have for your camping trip is a grill. Technically, you can cook food on an open fire, a rock can replace an oven panel and a pot can serve as a deep fryer. But, if you want to enjoy a lot of comfort on your trip and prepare some gourmet meals for your family and friends, a real camping grill can make a world of difference. There are so many things you need to do around the campsite, so if you have an opportunity to make one of them easier, make sure to take it! 

Water filter

If you love to camp somewhere far from civilization and take hikes during your nature outing, you won’t find any stores nearby to grab a bottle of water. And even if you have the means to find a store, going back and forth can be very inconvenient. Instead, you can invest in a high-quality filter that will ensure the water you find is clean and safe for drinking. Complete your hydration needs with an insulated bottle that will keep your clean water fresh and cool for longer. 

This list might seem long to you, but keep in mind that each item on this list needs to be purchased only once or twice in a lifetime. Once you invest in these camping must-haves and build a good inventory, every future camping trip will be a breeze, as long as you invest in quality over quantity. Your gear also allows you to customize your camping experience and adapt it to your habits and lifestyle. Overall, your gear will make a difference, so get a hold of these necessities and you can hit nature without worries.

That is a very good piece of advise for campers like me. I like the thermal pants advise. The other thing I don’t leave behind is our camping mattress for us as a couple.
