Camping Equipment Essential Guide

If you're planning a camping trip this spring or summer, you'll need some essential camping equipment to help you along the way. Here at Outdoor Sports we have all the kit you'll need.

Essential camping equipment for any trip:

If it's your first time, it's a good idea to get the basics sorted before you leave.

You'll need
Sleeping equipment: sleeping bags, pillows, airbeds or ground mats.
Lights: Lanterns are a great way to light up a whole tent and a torch for any moving about.
Tools: A pen knife, a mallet and a fire starter.
Clothing: Warm fleece, rain coat or a poncho.
A Rucksack big enough to carry everything.


For some home comforts, folding chairs, folding tables and camp beds are great for relaxing, eating, and making you comfortable.

Cooking Equipment:

BBQing in the outdoors is great. It doesn't have to be all beans and burnt toast. Full gourmet meals can be cooked if you have the right cooking equipment:

Camping stove and gas
Pots, pans, and cutlery
Plastic tableware and cups
Coolbox for storing chilled food and cold beers
Kettle if you want a cup of tea
Water containers

Don't forget all the other camping accessories too, including insect repellent, wellies, solar showers, first aid kits and much more, all available here at Outdoor Sports Mullingar.
