Take along plenty of drinking water. It would be best if you constantly stay hydrated. You will need the water to prepare your food and for cleaning up after yourself. You may also need water to wash your hands and feet. It is better to bring along more than you need than not enough.

Keep a close eye on your dog while you are camping and always keep him on a leash. Many camping areas have rules about pets. Be sure to keep your pet away from others belongings. Some fear dogs.

A flashlight is also a must-have item when you camp, but make sure the batteries are fully charged or new. Also, be sure and have extra batteries in case they are needed. One way to be sure the batteries don’t accidentally die on the trip is to put them into the flashlight backwards when not in use. That way, if the switch is accidentally left on, they stay charged. This also ensures you never misplace the batteries.

Be sure and back bedding and sleeping clothes. If you are going to be camping for a long time, be sure and purchase an expensive sleeping bag. It needs to be rated for below-freezing temperatures if required. Extra blankets are a good idea for warmth or extra padding. Many people like to sleep in warm clothing to help with cold temperatures, so don’t forget your PJ’s.

Food is another staple, like water, that is needed when camping. If you have the place to cook, that is the best, but you can always take dried meals and snacks. If bringing fresh food, be sure that all items are kept cool in a cooler or refrigerator. Many one dish meals can be used for camping to make food preparation a lot easier.
When you are cleaning up, you should always have soap. Don’t forget to pack soap, shampoo and other cleaning items. The most essential toilette item to pack is toilet paper.

There isn’t a lot to say about a first aid kit, except that every camper needs one in case of an emergency. You can never be too safe.
