When you think of quintessential summer fun, camping is at the top of the list. Sitting around the fire, laughing with your loved ones, making s’mores — what’s not to love? But, take it from someone who knows (this writer has been traveling the country via campground and state park full-time for the last two years), having the right equipment can make all the difference in the success of a family camping trip.
It goes without saying you’re going to need two primary things in abundance to venture into the great outdoors with your kids: a sense of adventure, and patience. Since those don’t take up any extra room in your bag, though, you have plenty of room for gears and supplies that will enhance your family camping experience.
From telescoping marshmallow roasters to a tent that everyone and the family dog can fit in, we’ve compiled a list of everything you need for a successful excursion.
