Camping with one of our Bluewater Camper Trailers has made preparation easy! However, there are always additional things you need to remember, so we spent some time scouring through camping checklists and brainstorming what we all take camping to come up with a comprehensive list for you to ensure your next trip is great!

Below we have listed everything that we believe you will need while camping, all items have been categorised, you may not need everything listed or some categories may not be relevant to you and your trip, but we hope this helps ensure a hassle free trip for you and your family!

*Note - We have created this list assuming your trip will be with a camper trailer or caravan.
