Camping Essentials Guide

Camping can be pretty straightforward. But you can easily get carried away and pack things you wouldn’t ever need. Want to know the essentials you’ll need and definitely use? Lucky for you, we have created a list of the top 8 things you will need.


  • A tent – a little obvious but make sure it fits 1-2 more people than you need
  • Tent pegs – most tents come with these, just remember to take them.
  • Pillows and sleeping bags – a must for a cosy and comfortable sleep
  • A camping stove and fuel
  • Camping Pans, utensils and cutlery
  • A camping water container– no more running to the site tap every two minutes
  • Camping chairs – perfect for when you want to sit down and relax around the campfire
  • Torches and spare batteries – a must for late night trips to the loo


You may also need to take a first aid kit in case of an emergency. Other non-essential essentials are heaters, games and marshmallows (obviously).
