Essentials for a Camping Trip

If you're heading off on a camping trip, you'll have probably already got yourself a good tent, sleeping bag, and maybe a rucksack to carry them in. The essentials are easy to remember! What you might not have considered yet are all the little extras that you should bring along that make a huge difference when your at your campsite. Luckily, you're in the right place to find them as eBay has everything you could need to make sure you're prepared for any situation. Here are a few things to make sure you add to your list:


Once the tent is all set up and the sleeping bag finally rolled out, chances are its going to be pretty dark. The last thing you want is to be staggering through trees in the pitch black trying to find firewood or to go to the toilet. What you need is a strong handheld spotlight or torch to show you the way! Having some illumination can be the difference between a fun, social evening around your camp and a rather disconcerting time sitting in the pitch black. You can choose to take a camping spotlight of any size, but pick one with good battery life and that's not too heavy to carry.

Sleeping Mat

If you are an inexperienced camper, it would be easy to assume that all that's required for sleeping is a cosy sleeping bag. However, one night spent sleeping on rock solid ground will be enough to assure you that that is not the case. Get yourself a roll mat to put between yourself and the earth, and you'll have a much warmer and more bearable night's sleep.


If the idea of a warm campfire is what got you sold on a camping trip, it could be a good idea to equip yourself as best you can to make sure it happens. While rubbing stones together is a proven method, you could well be there for hours! Save yourself some precious time and effort and bring along some firelighters. And a lighter!
