Camping Clothes


Bring clothes for all types of weather, from hot or rainy days, to chilly nights. If there's a body of water nearby, bring swimsuits and beach gear.

Even if the weather forecast calls for pleasant climate, be prepared for cold, buggy nights. Bring jeans or other long pants (capri pants won't cut it), a long-sleeved shirt, a sweatshirt, socks, and close-toed shoes to help keep your family warm and protected against bugs. Pack older clothes that you don't care about getting dirty or ripped.
