Adventurers will understand: You can spend all year anticipating your summer camping expeditions, but if you haven't stocked up on the right gear, things can take a turn for the worse REAL fast. All camping products are NOT created equal. We're of the belief that your gear should be easy to set up, functional (ideally in more ways than one), and built to last. Is that too much to ask? We don't think so, and that's why we teamed up with Walmart to bring you a roundup of all the essential items that you need to bring on your next camping trip if you want to make this one your best yet.
