Preparing your camping gear for the upcoming season along with making reservations, should begin now. Arriving at your campsite you shouldn’t see a tear in your tent or that your camp stove isn’t working. You don’t want to find out after arriving that there is a leak in your motor home, camper or travel trailer.
Everyone should be able to enjoy their camping trip without worrying about righting a wrong. Preparing your camping gear a head of time puts you out front of any problems. Therefore any issues that may arise on site will be minor. Most of all, after you set up camp you have the time now to relax instead of doing a repair.
Dig out your camping check list and start to work your way down the list. Place a check mark beside each item that is working or in stock. Repair those that need it or replace as necessary. If you don’t have a camping check list you can download our pdf or word doc for free and print as many copies as you need.
Follow through our 10 steps (not necessarily in this order) below to make sure all your camping equipment and supplies are in working order or in stock before you get to the camping season. Preparing your camping gear now will save valuable time for the activities you want to do when you get to the campsite.
