Family Camping Essentials
  • Sleeping Bags

    Even when staying in an RV, sleeping bags are nice and toasty at night, and sleeping in them brings a true camping feel to the trip. Ensure that the type of sleeping bag fits the weather you will be vacationing in. For example, temps around North Port Huron average around 38 degrees Ferenheight in late April, so using a sleeping bag rated for -5 degrees is probably going to be a little too toasty.

  • Lantern/Headlamp

    Along with seeing around the campsite at night, tent campers will appreciate having a light for evening trips to the bathroom. If some of your family members have four legs, a headlamp will help on those evening walks as well.

  • First-Aid Kit

    Scrapes and bruises are bound to happen when playing in nature. Many big box stores like Walmart sell ready-made camping first aid kits of various sizes. It’s one of those family camping essentials that you hope you don’t have to use, but you’re glad you have it when the need arises.

  • Sunscreen

    According to doctors, even if the weather isn’t scorching, protecting exposed skin from harmful UV rays is important.

  • Bug Spray

    While spring camping may have fewer bugs than in the middle of summer, it’s always good to pack bug spray on your family camping trip.

  • Clothing For Adverse Weather

    Bringing the proper clothing for the weather you will be vacationing in is a given. But it’s always a good idea to pack an extra layer or two in case of a cold snap or a rain jacket if Mother Nature isn’t feeling sunny throughout the entire vacation.
