Believe me, it is the same as preparing a menu at home, but WOW! … you are going to be a hit with these ideas.
No idea where to start selecting camping gear or equipment? We will provide you with detailed explanations of what to take and why, but, of course, you make the decision. Our camping gear for family car camping page provides you not only with suggestions, but explanations as well. As with any camping adventure, the camping items depend on your preferences and comfort level.
Camping tents are designed for the seasons and the number of people they will accommodate. We will explain the differences. The basics are: convertible tents, winter tents, 3 season tents, 4 season tents, backpacking tents, family tents (large camping tents for SUV’s), wall canvas tents … stop already. We will help make your selection easy.
We will guide you through the process of selecting the right backpack for backpacking, whether it is for a day hiking trip, a weekend trip or longer. Properly fitting a backpack, properly packing a backpack, and which camping tents are right for your specific adventure.
Do you need a sleeping bag, and if so, which kind? We will take you through the process of choosing the right bag for you and your family members. It is actually painless and easy.
Thousands upon thousands of campers have discovered that an inflatable boat, kayak, or canoe isn’t what it used to be. They are strong and durable, easily manageable, extremely safe, lightweight, and some even support up to a 40 HP engine. Many of the best lakes and rivers do not allow motors, but you can simply take your inflatable boat out of your SUV or trunk of the car and off you go within minutes. These inflatables will enhance your trip, and boat camping is becoming a very popular outdoor activity.
