Top things to bring camping

If you’re thinking of camping in winter, sleeping in below 32F temperature with chances of rain, you need to be prepared. Here are some essential items that I’ve brought to my camping trip at The Joshua Tree National Park.


1.  Marmot Trestles Sleeping Bag

If you want to have a good night sleep without worrying about the cold weather and discomfort from the sand or rocks, a good sleeping bag that can keep you warm and cosy is important. The Marmot Trestles Sleeping Bag is a great selection to start for beginners.




2. Camp Bed 3.5 Self-Inflating Sleeping Pad

To truly enhance your night’s experience, a sleeping pad for you to put under your sleeping bag is a step that should be missed! The best parts of having it is to prevent the discomfort from rocks and stands under your tent and keeping you away from the cold coming out from the ground.





3. Outdoor Products All Purpose Tarp

It never hurts to have an extra layer under your tent. We placed the Outdoor Products All Purpose Tarp below our tent to keep our tent clean as it helps to minimalize the mess that could be created from sand etc.



4. REI Half Dome 2 Tent

This lightweight,sturdy and weather worthy tent offers many comfortable touches for 2 backpackers.




5. REI Flex Lite Chair

This supportive, easy-to-pack chair is deep and comfortable. Its light weight works well for backpackers and the low height makes it a smart choice for concertgoers. We used it to sit by the fire pit to enjoy our smores and hot chocolate.


Last but not least, don’t forget to wear layers and bring a good light weight jacket!

Have a great camping trip! 🙂
