 The most important item on their list of things needed, would obviously have to be a tent and a rod n reel. They don’t have to choose an expensive tent as long as it provides good weather protection and shields  their family from the natural elements such as the wind, sun, and rain. They also need a secure tent that can keep away the flies, mosquitoes and other pests. Your tent will also be, in all likelihood, your best place for privacy and where you will store your clothes and camping gear to keep them safe from the weather.

Fishing equipment is very important and very valuable when you are camping in the wilderness. Always have a back up fishing pole since you never know when you might need it. Tackle such as fishing hooks, weights, lures, line for your reel, and a filet knife are vital to a successful fishing trip.

 Plan what you will be eating. Experienced campers or backyards chefs will likely have lots of recipes for outdoor cooking. It’s also possible to get by with simply a cooler of drinks, sandwiches, and snacks.

If for some reason you don’t own a portable grill you can find a grill and picnic table at most public campsites. If grilling is in your plans do not forget to bring lighter fluid. a bag of charcoal and a spatula. With them you’ll be ready to cook your steaks, hot dogs, and hamburgers on the grill.

 For longer camping trips, you might wanna bring a propane stove, a skillet and a few pots so that you can expand your cooking choices. -Whatever you choose just make sure it doesn’t turn into work. You’re on vacation!!
