    I like packing light for short camping trips. The only thing besides a good waterproof tent I must have is mosquito repellant. They seem to target me whenever I go out.

    My husband MUST have a fan on in order to sleep, so we have to stick with campsites that provide electricity. I don't know if it's the noise of the fan that he needs, or what.

    A source of light. Flashlight, headlight, lantern…

    Can I choose electricity?  If not than it would be my iPad. I am a total indoor girl.

    The only camping I do is backpacking, well away from any developed campsites. There are about sixty things I'd have trouble doing without, from good boots to good food to a good water filter. They all work together, so no one thing is the single essential one.

    Depends on what kind of camping you mean and how you meant the question. For survival, that would be my pocket knife. But on a regular camping trip, what would be one thing I would have to have? Good company.

      A knife.  Probably the best answer on here!

    I would have to say matches.  Yes there are other ways to start fires, but I want to enjoy myself on the trip not take two hours to get a fire going.  My son could probably start a fire quickly without them, but if I'm going I'm bringing matches (or a good lighter) along.

    All I need while camping is firewood and beer.
