If you are new to camping, this guide will direct you to all the knowledge you need to know: from purchasing your camping gear, to all things you need to take, and to have a successful first trip away.
What are the Different Forms of Camping?
Before you purchase anything for your first camping trip, it’s obviously much wiser to think about which form/type of camping you want to go.
We usually see below types of camping:
- Campsite camping
- Festival camping
- Wild camping
- Adventure camping
- Winter camping
- Car, Off-Road & RV Camping
What Size Tent will You Need?
When preparing for a camping trip, the first thing you have to do is, of course, choosing a tent that is suitable for your outdoor activity.
Ask yourself 4 questions:
- How many people are camping?
- How much camping gear/kit are you taking?
- How many bedrooms do you need (for larger groups)?
- Does your chosen campsite have any size limitations?
What do You Need to Take?
Having the necessary supplies is essential for any outdoor activities, especially for camping. At least we can make several checklists:
- Tent Checklist
- Sleeping Checklist
- Campsite Checklist
- Camping Kitchen Checklist
- Health & Safety Checklist
You can take this article ( Camping Checklist: What Do You Need to Take ) as a starting point and work out what gear is relevant to your particular trip.
