Summer Camping Checklist – 25 Essentials for Camping

By Safelite // Jul 24, 2019

Summer is here which means camping season is in full swing. Whether you’re pitching a tent, have an RV or even “glamping”, it’s important to be prepared and stocked for anything that may come your way. To help, we’ve put together a summer camping checklist to ensure that you have everything you need for your next camping trip.  If you don’t have some of these items, gear rental at your local outdoor shop is a great option, especially for first-time campers.

  • Tent or RV (depending on preference)
  • Cell Phone and charger
  • Clothing
  • Toiletries
  • First Aid Kit
  • Water
  • Sleeping bags/Blankets/Pillows
  • Bug spray and sunscreen
  • Knife
  • Campsite LED lantern
  • Batteries
  • Fire starters
  • Camping stove and utensils
  • Cups/plates/bowls
  • Extendable forks for fire
  • Containers for food
  • Waterproof clothing and socks
  • Compass/map
  • Cooler
  • Tarp
  • Towels
  • Duct tape
  • Lighter or matches
  • Trash and recycling bags
  • Check windshield for chips and cracks

Planning a camping trip, especially for the first time, can be stressful and time consuming. To make things easier, print this list and check off items as you’re packing. And remember, if you find a chip, don't let it spread before your big trip! Stay safe on the road and schedule auto glass repair service.
