If you are looking for tent camping equipment for your family, there’s plenty of options available in stores today. Some camping supplies are specifically for camping such as propane griddles and sleeping bags.
Some camping supplies are just regular household supplies remarketed to campers. How did we get by without a camping broom and dust pan?
Each family’s camping trips are different. When looking for supplies, focus on the priorities and circumstances your family has for the trip. And then, use your imagination.
For example, my family likes tent camping and we have a toddler. That’s what you call Adventure Camping!
We like to camp in State Parks so we setup our tent on a pad. These pads are usually covered with rocks and gravel. Even though our tent has a floor, the rocks are very sharp and can hurt your feet when you walk across the floor. To remedy this problem, we bought big foam floor tiles from a wholesale club. You see these tiles sometimes at preschools.
The foam floor tiles worked great for our family.
- The rocks don’t hurt your feet when you are in the tent.
- Our toddler now has a place to crawl (and attempt to walk) around.
The big kids enjoyed putting together the huge foam puzzle.
Foam tile flooring may not be for everyone, but it has worked great for our family. And who knows, you may find them in a sporting goods store soon. Just look for camping foam floor tiles!
I’ll see ya by the campfire.
What about your family? What are some of the ideas and tips you use to make your tent camping trips more enjoyable?
UPDATE: Many of you have asked where these tiles may be purchased. You can find them on Amazon HERE.
