1. Games

What's a camping trip without games?! I mean you DO go camping to unplug and be one with nature. Why not bring along a game of cornhole or a deck of cards? An image

2. Cooler

If you want your drinks to be cold (because who wants to drink ANYTHING HOT during the middle of Summer) you're going to need a kickass cooler. This one holds 60 qt. so you know you're gonna be set no matter what you put in there (including hot dog weiners and popsicles). An image

3. Inflatable Solar Light

Let there be light! A SOLAR powered light... because no one wants to get stuck in the middle of the woods with a dead battery powered flashlight. An image

4. Hydration Pack

Ya thirsty? You won't be if you carry around a hydration pack with you. It's a lot harder to lose your water bottle if it's attached to your back. An image

5. Flash Cooking System

If you're a serious camper that plans to go for an extended period of time, then a flash cooking system is your new best friend. You can instantly cook freeze-dried meals, cocoa or coffee so you don't need to worry about waiting for water to boil. An image

6. A great backpack

Let's be real, you need something to carry all your sh*t. It doesn't matter if you're backpacking across Europe or headed to the nearest park, the KARRIMOR AIRSPACE 35+5 Pack has an airspace back system to keep you cool AND an integrated rain cover to keep your stuff dry. An image

7. Drool pillow

You could go without a pillow.... if you don't want to sleep well! The drool pillow packs down AND allows you to get a good night's sleep while out in the wilderness. An image

8. Sleeping bag

Much like a pillow, you're probably going to need a sleeping bag. This one will make you feel as snug as a bug in a rug. Plus it's less likely for you to find a snake in your bed... An image

9. Hammock

Hanging around? No?! You could bd if you had this sweet af hammock. Kick back and relax while letting all your troubles fall away as you gently swing from side to side. An image

10. 8 person tent

Ah yes, the pinnacle of camping luxury. Sure you can go for a two person tent by why do that when you can have room for activities in an EIGHT person tent. Plus it has a closet so you don't have to worry about your clothes being all kinds of wrinkled and gross. An image
