Read our handy guide on family camping to make sure you don't forget anything.
Worried you'll forget what to pack for your big adventure? No idea what to pack in the first place?
If you’re being extra prepared, pitch your tent in the garden before you go away and pop everything inside – you don’t want your tent to be overstuffed once you’re at the camping site, as whatever sticks out the bottom could get wet. It's also worth checking everything will fit in the car before setting off.
We’ve included our five favourite camping gadgets to help you get the most out of your trip:
At around £15, the Vango compact camping stove proves that good things really do come in small (and affordable) packages.
Easy to set up and pack away, this little stove comes with its own container and can boil a litre of water in under five minutes.
You can charge it using sunlight or by winding it up, making this torch a must-have piece of camping kit.
It might not be the most powerful torch on the market but at under £10, it’s one of the best value. For that extra bump of charge, plug it into any USB charging socket.
Journeying into the wilderness? Even if you’re only travelling to the English countryside, anywhere without a warm shower can feel pretty wild!
Made with heat-resistant fabric, this shower keeps your water at the temperature you want it.
Fitting neatly into the palm of your hand, this versatile little power pack has six different adaptors so that you can keep all your personal devices charged – wherever you are.
At full charge, it can get the standard smart phone battery from almost flat to almost full.
This multi-purpose blanket can be used as a picnic rug, a cushion to sit on or a cosy waterproof to keep you warm.
It’s resistant to water and stains, so don’t worry if you spill your tea on it when eating your picnic, even if you’re hoping to snuggle under it that same night.
