What To Bring on a Camping Trip
1. Truck Tent
Get a truck tent for impromptu camping trips or if you’re just really want to feel more comfortable!
2. DIY camping light
Use a solar light and stick it in an upside-down terra cotta pot. Brilliant! (source unknown).
3. Camping Bathtub for Kids
Bring an extra-large camping tub, fill it with water, and use it as a bathtub for little kids. Great idea! (source unknown)
4. Canopy Cover for Camping
Smart! A tent under a canopy. Additional space is used for living space.
5. Camping Toilet
DIY camping toilet – ha! Kind of smart though. A large bucket and a pool noodle… Saving this idea!
Buy cheap shower caps to put dirty camping shoes inside of when packing up. This way it keeps the rest of the things in your travel bag relatively clean.
Camping toothpaste – make toothpaste dots, let them dry, sprinkle them with baking soda then pop them into a bag. When camping, put one in your mouth and chew–add water and brush. (via ruggedthug)
Using a large water jug and a watering can head. Click the picture to see how it’s made.
9. Hang a fan in a canopy
I know that there are many safety issues surrounding this idea, but I couldn’t resist sharing. As long as it is very secure…. (source unknown)
10. Organized Camping!
Use labeled plastic dressers instead of the usual duffle bags. Fits nicely in the tent and you can use the tops as shelves or “counter space”. Keeps you organized during your trip. Source unknown.
11. Camping Bathroom
Know anybody who likes to camp? Show them this! A private little bathroom to set up at your campsite. I love this camping idea.

Buy the Dollar Store bedding bags to keep towels, etc together, and keep camp dust off while camping. So smart!
A hanging closet organizer will keep your tent organized. A must have for kids!
A tent cot! This is what I need! It has amazing reviews, especially if you put an inflatable mattress inside of it. Now THAT is comfortable camping!
What a great idea!
A great way to collect trash during the daytime at the campsite!
Flys can be so annoying while camping! Did you know that flies can’t stand Pine-Sol? That being said, this spray works particularly well outside and on outdoor furniture.
Take a look at these delicious and creative camping food ideas. Just in case you’re not going camping but want to cook outside this summer, a lot of these recipes can be used with a BBQ too.
