Whether you’re enjoying a staycation in the UK or packing up all your camping equipment for camping in France, you’ll want to make sure you’ve got all the best camping necessities to take with you. There’s nothing worse than getting ready to set up at your campsite and realising you’ve left the camping chairs at home! Experienced campers know it’s all in the planning, and we’re here to help. We’ve created a simple camping checklist so you can simply pack up and pitch up and get to enjoying your room with a view and a ceiling of stars all that quicker.

Whether it’s a camping table, camping stove or lightweight tent you’re after, you’ll find we’ve got a whole host of camping equipment to choose from to help you get ready for your next camping trip.

If you’re wild camping with no access to food tents, or you prefer rustling up your own food then make sure you take a mini stove with you and all important lighter fuel. We have a cutlery set and mess tins as well as a whistling kettle for your morning brew.

We hope our list of things to take camping will help you plan your next trip away. Where are you planning on camping this year? Whether you’re camping in Europe or somewhere closer to home this summer, we’d love to hear from you. Send your pictures to us on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or Pinterest.
