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!
On this page you will find links to our series of posts surrounding the items we deem “must haves for tent camping” as well as a downloadable list (click to jump to list) of what we use. I’ve also have a handy downloadable camping packing list. If you find something useful, leave a comment on that post. We’d love to hear from you!
This list features links to items we’ve personally reviewed as well as affiliate links to items we plan to purchase for our own camping experience! If you make a purchase using one of our affiliate links, we’ll receive a small commission at no additional cost to you.
