Your Camping Supplies Checklist for Summer

Water and More Water

Though water should be on your camping supplies checklist, there are a number of options to hydrate yourself on a camping trip. If you're camping where drinking water isn't available, invest in a water purifier for rivers and lakes. Most campgrounds, however, will have running water that is drinkable, which eliminates the need to bring a lot of extra.

Sun Block

Nothing will ruin a great camping trip the way a bad sunburn can. Make sure the sunscreen on your camping supplies checklist is water resistant and high SPF.

Clothing
