5 great tools to make camping feel like glamping

As the weather warms and summer months near, it’s not unusual to be bit by the travel bug. If you’re like the myriad of others who turn to camping as a way to enjoy the natural world, you will need to bring a few comforts from home in order to stay comfortable on your adventures.

Besides the obvious—basics like a tent, sleeping bag, food, water, and clothes—there are a few camping tools you’ll want to make sure to pack. Some of these items are essential for your safety while out in the wild, though others you may be able to live without (not that you’ll want to). It doesn’t take much to take your camping trip to the next level, and these five helpful tools will do exactly that.

With these five tools in your backpack, you’ll be more than ready to take on the wild. You won’t lose any sleep, you’ll get to see some amazing views, and you’ll get to enjoy a few comforts from home. Who knows—maybe being outdoors won’t feel so wild and unfamiliar by the end of the trip, even if you needed to enlist the help of a few comfort items along the way.

Remember, camping should be enjoyable, so don’t be afraid to do it your way—even if your way includes string lights and some bathroom accessories! As long as you’re enjoying yourself (or relaxing) and respecting the natural world, that’s what camping is all about.
