I have been a tent camper for the majority of my life, regardless of whether it was tent camping in the summer with the family or camping in mid November deer hunting season with guys.
Honestly there is no other way to enjoy the great outdoors than spending the night in a tent. You really can’t get much closer to nature than that unless you are lying out in the woods in a sleeping bag!
But, I will say that when you take the family tent camping in Indiana, there are a few comforts that you are missing out on that you really don’t need to. There are so many options available for tent campers these days that honestly, who needs a camper?
Inside this post I am going to share with you 7 things that you need for tent camping that will have a great effect on the quality of your next camping trip with the family.
Coleman Camping Stove This is one of the tools that I never ever go camping without. There is nothing better than having a stove to cook your food on. All the little extras that go with food on the grill can be whipped right up on this awesome propane stove.
Egg Holder This is one of my new camping favorites. I love to have eggs and bacon when I am camping, there is something about the smell of fresh air and bacon that just brings me back to the times when I was a kid and spend my weekends on the lake. This egg container will not fall apart like a cardboard container and not break in half like a Styrofoam one.
Camp Dishes Here is one of those money saving deals. Instead of spending money every single weekend on paper plates and plastics cups, why not just get a set that will last you for many years to come. Many people think that they are saving money by just buying some cheap food wares but in the long run they are losing money. Go and get a set.
Camp Sink What a better way to wash you new dishes than this portable sink. It is a simple yet awesome way to save money when you bring your own dishes.
Tent Light You can never be too safe. Taking a lit lantern into a tent can be dangerous in more than one way, you can expose yourself to poisonous gases that are not burned by the burners and you can potentially knock it over and start a fire. So be safe and get yourself a tent light.
Camp Shower One of the greatest camping innovations ever. Growing up when we needed to get cleaned off, we would have to run down to the beach and take a swim! eww. Now you can have the luxury of a multiple thousand dollar camper for less than a hundred bucks.
Dry Sacs Regardless of how much you spend on a tent, it is going to get damp if you have a good shower or thunderstorm. Spend a few bucks and invest into a pack of dry sacs to keep your stuff nice and dry and it will make a world of difference on a long trip.
There you go, those 7 things will make your tent camping in Indiana ten times more easy, relaxing and just plain out fun.
