Headlamps, flashlights, lanterns and outdoor lighting like torches or LED tube lights will keep your campsite well-lit. You will also need a few bundles of approved firewood, a cooler and ice, a water dispenser and matches, a lighter and fire starter.
For your belongings that require batteries, bring some extras in case your lamp or flashlight stops working. A portable charger or power bank for your phone or other devices is also good to have on hand.
If reception is going to be poor in your area, you might also want to invest in a Wi-Fi extender or similar device to stay connected.
FURNITURE AND DECORATIONS
Add style and comfort to your campsite with camping chairs, plastic tablecloths and tablecloth clips for the picnic table, insect-repellant candles, small tables, shade structures and portable rain pavilions.
An outdoor rug will help catch dirt and grass before you go inside your tent, RV or cabin.
Bring hygiene items and toiletries, including towels, washcloths, soap, shampoo, shower shoes, your toothbrush and toothpaste and your contact lens case and solution, if applicable.
You might also enjoy the comfort of a soft robe and slippers.

When you go camping, don't forget to turn off your cell phone. Leave the tablet and the laptop computer at home. Try to disconnect for a few days and enjoy the simplicity of the natural experience.
This isn't just a general tip to help you enjoy the experience; if you're willing to enjoy your surroundings without any outside distractions, you could increase your lifespan. You must know that turning off the cell phone and engaging with nature is one of the simplest ways to get the health benefits of meditation.
The Mayo Clinic reports that meditation may improve a number of serious medical conditions by increasing self awareness and giving a person stress-reduction tools. If you suffer from depression, fatigue, heart disease or even allergies, research shows that camping can improve your overall health.
Just don't forget to commit to the experience--if your cell phone's off, you're on your way to developing a stimulating, tranquil hobby that will keep you healthy for years to come.
