Fall Camping Supply List

camping supplies

It is easy to over-pack or under-pack for camping. I was chatting about this with a friend who actually runs a camping-themed site, Shooting Authority and he agreed that it is also easy to bring more stuff than you will ever need when you’re bringing kids along. Your camping supply list should be minimal, as the point is to experience life without luxury. But if it’s too minimal, you run the risk of being uncomfortable and having to fork-over money for goods from the park store. If you bring nothing else, at least bring a good bushcraft knife.

Camping Supplies

Tent or RV

Sleeping Bag – 20 degree Fahrenheit

Air Mattress or sleeping pad (Not necessary, but it definitely adds to your comfort level)
