The Items that Will Make Camping Even Better

15623526747_4e384387a3_z.jpg

Whether you’re a seasoned camper or you’re new to the outdoor living experience, there are lots of tools that can help you enjoy your time in nature a lot more. Although there are more great gadgets than I could pack into one post, I’ve selected some of the best. So, without further ado, here are the items that will make camping even better for you:
A Penknife
It’s an oldie, but when you’re packing for your next camping trip, a penknife should be right on top of your list, next to your tent and sleeping bag. Penknives can be used for everything from cutting yourself free from tangles to opening cans and everything in between. TentsAndCampGear.com has a great guide to buying penknives, which I suggest you check out if you don’t already have one.
The Scrubba Wash Pack
Although you don’t exactly have to be the model of a fashionable traveller when camping, if you are going to be camping for more than a couple of days, pack a Scrubba Wash Pack and you will never have to worry about clean clothes again. The pack , which weighs just 5 ounces is able to wash a day’s worth of clothing with nothing more than a little bio-soap – you don’t even need water or power! You can find out more about the Scrubba Wash Pack at TheScrubba.com.
A Solar Lantern

You might not have any electricity when you’re camping in the wilderness, but that doesn’t means that you have to stumble around in the darkness. A good portable solar lantern can give out as much as 12 hours of light and can be deflated to fit in your pack. Carry one with you so you can read, cook and get around in the dark.
A Portable Coffee Maker
If the thought of going even a day fills you with dread, but you can’t bear that horrible instant stuff, invest in a Handpresso, which can be purchased at Amazon.com and you’ll be able to grind your own coffee while you sit round the campfire.
A Pop-Up Tent
Investing in a pop-up tent will make your life a lot easier, especially if you’re not used to pitching your camping shelter. It’ll save you a lot of time and effort battling with tent pegs and you’ll be able to enjoy your trip that bit sooner.
A Hammock

Hammocks are the most comfortable way to sleep outdoors, providing the weather is favourable. You can even buy hammocks fit for tow, so if you’re camping with your sweetheart and you want to get cosy, order a hammock today!

A Collapsible Kayak
If you want to have some action and adventure in the water, but you don’t want to lug around heavy equipment, invest in a collapsible kayak, like the ones at orukayaki.com, which weight just 35 pounds, but which can support weights of up to 300 pounds, and make a splash.
I hope this post has given you some handy ideas for making the most of your next camping trip. Do let me know how your next camping trip goes.
