These are some camping essentials that you're definitely going to need on your next vacation within the great outdoors! Be prepared!

Camping season is here! The days are finally long enough and the nights are warm enough to load up the car and drive out into the woods for the weekend. But before you shut your trunk and head out, you may want to double check your supply list. While everyone knows to pack the tent, sleeping bags, and s’mores materials, they often forget some of the best stuff… things that will transform how you camp. So, if you are wanting to up your camping game, you may want to check out the list below for my ten essential camping accessories that once you pack, you will never go without again.

Hanging Lantern

I know you are thinking that you could just bring a flashlight, but you are missing out if you don’t have a hanging lantern. No more propping the flashlight up against the side of the tent or holding it in your mouth as you search for your missing sock, just switch on your lantern and hang it from the top loop of your tent… let there be light.

If you are camping anywhere off the beaten path or basically anywhere that doesn’t have a picnic table and fire ring, you need a GPS. They have come a long way over the years, and they could save your butt if you ever get turned around, so just pack it.

Portable Shower

You may want to add one of these to your shopping list if you like to camp for more than a couple days. There are several brands of portable showers, but they all aim to do the same thing, make you smell better than the animals you’re sharing the woods with.

Waterproof Socks

Yes, they exist and yes, they work. I hate nothing more than wet feet, so I jumped at the idea of waterproof socks and have never looked back. They keep your feet nice and dry anytime the weather takes a turn for the worse or you step in a puddle just to find out it’s a pond. This is one of the essential camping accessories that you will need to keep you dry and warm.

Camp Chair

Camp chairs don’t have to be long bulky items you strap to the top of your car. They can be less than 5 pounds and smaller than a sleeping bag, and they will come in handy when you want to be near the fire while keeping your butt off the cold ground.
