Must Haves For Tent Camping

We recently created a series featuring our must haves when we go tent camping. We have several items on our camping list that we take on each camping trip. Clay and I love staying in the more secluded, or primitive, areas of the campground (for privacy), but, I’m not super outdoorsy, so I still like to have some creature comforts. I guess you could say we combine primitive camping with “glamping”.

Hey, it can be done!
