Camping is a great way to go if you want to escape the urban life and refresh.
While campsites and campgrounds might please you with services like running water and wood to start your campfire, the only (and the best of all) service dispersed camping gives you is a wild, remote camp where you’re on your own. Without spending hours trying to reserve a spot!
So, what to pack for your camping trip?
The golden rule – less is more. The beauty of camping is needing a minimum gear to exist outdoors. And the best part is that you don’t need to sacrifice a convenient, homelike campsite for that – most camping gear is as multi-functional as it can get!
Of course, if you’re a first-time camper, it might be nice to borrow some of the equipment. With experience, you’ll possibly find it’s a part of the fun to figure out what to carry on to cater to your needs.
To make your preparation a breeze, we’ve prepared this handy camping checklist, so you don’t forget anything essential (and don’t waste your backpack space on anything unnecessary).
The list is pretty extensive – keep in mind there are different camping styles and it’s okay not to bring everything along!

Tools and repair
