Has it been awhile since you have been camping? Or are you ready to replace some of your basic, used-up gear that has been packed around for years? Let's go back to the basics and take a glance at some of the newest camping "essentials." You may find something that you don't know how you were camping without!

Camping provides for a simpler lifestyle, so let's filter this down to 5 "somethings." Something to sleep in, something to sleep on, something to cook on, something to sit on and something to warm you up. Can't get much more simple than that!

Something to...    pop up tent

-  Sleep in

If you don’t have a camper or RV, having an awesome, reliable tent is important. Make sure to get a tent that will endure the elements, is easy to set up and transport and that will last a long time. Check some of our tents

In addition to packing shelter, don’t forget about tarps and/or ground cloths to keep out water from damp ground.

-  Sleep on

Quality sleep is important while camping, especially if you want to have the energy to participate in all of the outdoor activities that come with it! Here are some of the sleeping bags, cots and air mattresses that will make your camping a little more comfortable!

Along with something to sleep on (or in) don’t forget to pack extra blankets, linens and pillows. Even spring for a pad or mat to make your night's rest a little more comfortable!
