While many of these gadgets fall into the cool camping gear category, you want to remember that when camping, less can be more.

Yes, you want the essentials and the items that will make you feel secure in nature, but it’s not always necessary to have solar power chargers and fancy washing machine bags. And don’t forget, the more you bring with you on your camping trip, the more you will have to keep track of and remember to bring back home with you.

Remember, less is more when you intend to get away and enjoy nature for a few days.
