05/18/2021: Top 15 Amazon Camping Essentials

Recently, my sister in law invited my husband and I to go camping with her family this weekend and although I enjoyed the idea of spending my weekend in the woods, I instantly felt overwhelmed since I hadn’t gone shopping for camping gear in over 10 years. Needless to say I was at a loss for what items I would actually need for the trip but luckily I was able to find a lot of “camping check lists” online to reference and I was able to find pretty much everything on Amazon for an affordable price!
