Microfiber Blanket – You can just bring blankets from home, or you can get one of these special microfiber blankets. They don’t take up much space and are very lightweight!

I bought three of these one for each of my children. The kids shared a double sleeping bag. They mostly slept on top of it and had their own blanket.

Fun and Essential Lighting

Flashlight – I have one of these Streamlights and they are awesome! Not just any flashlight will do. You need something that can cut through the tree line or light up the tree. 

A small cheap flashlight is fine when you are indoors, but outside there is so much more depth, it takes a powerful flashlight to cut through all that darkness.

It also has the option of strobe lighting. In addition, it has 3 different light settings, high, medium, and low.

If you want a super bright flashlight this is the one to have!

Rechargeable
Dual Switches
Impact-resistant
(1 meter) for the clumsy.


CONS
Expensive – Great quality for your buck though!
Heavy – depending on the model you buy. The one I chose is fairly lightweight.

Portable LED Camping Lantern with Ceiling Fan – I love the idea of having a fan. Sometimes when we camp it is hot, and the air in the tent is stuffy and gross.

Summary

Fan – The fan is great for those warmer nights and can last 2 or 3 nights.
Adjustable fan – You can point the fan where you’d like it to blow.

Small fan – A small fan like this isn’t going to work well in a large tent.
Dim lighting – This is not a super bright light.

Miscellaneous | Best Camping Gear on Amazon

Axe – It never fails, you’ll always need a couple of blades when camping. Especially, if you’re going off the beaten track.

Unfortunately, I couldn’t really locate an axe with great reviews. The bad reviews of the blades breaking outweigh all the good review for me.

I’ve included one review summary of a higher-end hatchet, but the bad reviews are pretty terrible! So weigh your options.

Camping Hatchet

Expensive
Poor Craftsmanship seems to be suffering. Many people complaining about blades being defective.

First Aid Kit – I love all of the handy labels inside. Being able to find a particular item during an emergency is really important. I love the organization and variety this bag provides. The same company has bigger first aid kits too!
