It’s about the time of year to start thinking more about camping season and making sure you have all of your camping gear set up and ready to go.
Any Northerner who enjoys the wilderness and spends time outdoors knows that it’s common to lose a few items along the way. Checking your gear from year to year to make sure that you still have all your essential items is a must. You must also check your gear to make sure things are in good working order.

Camp sites are filling up and related equipment is flying off of the shelves, if available at all. When it comes to camping gear and essential camping items, Amazon usually have your back, though.
If you are looking for some camping items that are capable of bringing some comfort, fun, or even style, you can only go right with these 20 items that will make life easier for every camper in Northern Ontario this year.
