Happy Campers Guide To Being Prepared

Happy Campers are prepared campers.  It doesn't take much to be prepared. A few simple items can help you in any weather and in any circumstance.  


Camping Infographic and Article. Must Haves! What You Need and Why. Don't Forget

Need a shelter, floor cover, ground cover, tablecloth, floor mat, curtain?  Take a tarp, or two or three in different sizes.  They don't take much space and you can use them for lots of things.

Ropes, twine, string, clips and clothespins can help most anything! Hang your clothes, towels, paper towels, string up a tarp, tie up a pet, hold down a tablecloth.  You can't go wrong!

Plastic bags in all sizes are great for organizing, keeping things dry, packing them away, saving for later and tossing away.

Candles, matches, solar lights and flashlights of course.  Keep them in plastic containers to stay dry.  Light your way to the restrooms and campsite at night, light a monopoly game or late night dinner. Keep extra batteries or have a solar light!

Pocket knife or muti tool will get you though a lot of snags.  Whether you use them for an emergency or to create something you need, or suddenly discover you left behind.

Jugs and tubs to hold drinking water and wash water. Keep a facecloth wet in a plastic bag-that's always handy.

Check out our free infographic.  Print it out and save it.  Be prepared Pals!

  1. If you are tent camping, glow sticks or solar lights can also make very handy markers for those tent stakes and strings that become tripping hazards in the dark. a small solar light at the stakes on the "inside" of your campsite can save a lot of sore toes.

    Re-use juice containers (those slightly rectangular ones) by cleaning them out well at home, fill with drinking water and freeze. They will keep your cooler cold longer than small ice, and you will have tasty drinking water as it melts. (eventually you may still need to buy ice, but this will go a long way)...and keep your cooler in the shade as much as possible :)
