What to pack

When you go camping there is a lot to take, whether it be for 1 night or 2 weeks. Ideally you would like to pack as minimal as possible. Here are the basics to pack, however, I am sure there are some ‘luxury items’ that you can squeeze in if it will make your holiday that bit more enjoyable!
