Camping allows you to spend time with your family and friends while also allowing you to travel to weekend spots with your caravan. However, you won’t be able to have a BBQ party at your campsite if you don’t have the right camping equipment. You can camp with your typical tents and recreational vehicles, but you’ll need something beyond essential camp items to get the most out of your trip. If you plan on having more than just any other outdoor adventure and want to make it count truly, you’ll have to think beyond the obvious and chalk out a list of suitable accessories to pack along.
Listed below are some of the options you can consider:
Wicker Basket: While you would associate a wicker basket with a lovely day picnic, you can be in for some real surprises if you choose to carry your ‘picnic basket’ to your campsite. A wicker basket is much more convenient if you have to pack some of your stuff from one place to another at the camp. For example, if there’s a waterfall some kilometres away from the spot you’ve pitched your tent in and you plan to spend half a day there, you can simply throw in some fruits, a towel, a book or a hat in your wicker basket and simply enjoy your day as planned.
Beach Bag: Pretty similar to wicker baskets, beach bags allow you the flexibility to stack in some essentials for a spontaneous or planned detour while you’re camping. If your campsite is close to a beach, getting a beach bag would be one of the essentials. Besides, it is easy to carry, has nearly no weight and provides loads of functionality from holding your stuff to substituting it as a mat!
Gas Barbecue: If elevating your venture is on the list, don’t forget and leave the gas barbecue behind. You can have a ‘barbecue night’ like the one you saw in movies and create a vibe that will seem truly special. Besides, gas barbecues come in handy if you plan on spending a little more extended time camping as you can barbecue a whole lot of other stuff too.
Compressor Fridge: Much like any fridge, compressor refrigerators work well to keep your food cold or preserve it on warm days at your campsite. A compressor fridge is also an excellent investment to stack up some medical or excess food supplies you deem necessary. To top it all, these refrigerators are energy efficient and have minimal maintenance costs.
Hammock: While you would categorise camp chairs as essential, hammocks certainly classify as an accessory that can truly add an element of fun to your outdoor adventure. Not only does a hammock make for a picturesque sight, but also renders a relaxed experience to anyone using it. A whole bunch of your memories can revolve around your hammock only if you choose to carry it along.
Summing Up: Apart from the list of accessories mentioned above, you can also throw in a firestarter, power backup, multi-tool kit and some stunning lights for an all-round package. Also, remember to take good care of all your stuff to ensure that you’re ready to jet off with ease the next time you think of stepping up into the wild.
