If you are from a camping and outdoor family you are sure to have a great love for nature, and adventure, and like to spend quality time together in the great outdoors. To explore, discover, and connect with the natural world, campers are sure to have a lot of equipment and outdoor gear.

However, to embrace these challenges, and make the most of outdoor adventure, the equipment and outdoor gear need to be stored securely somewhere. Well, the good news is that there is no better place to store it than in a self storage unit.

Camping and outdoor adventure and exploration are exciting. As a camper, you will always be looking for new experiences, challenges, and opportunities to hike, swim, kayak, or engage in other outdoor activities. This means that you will have all the bells and whistles with you when you go.

A self storage rental is simple to do and is affordable and convenient, especially for outdoor families who also like the simplicity and serenity of outdoor living.

Why Self Storage Gives Campers Freedom

Having all your camping and outdoor gear securely under lock and key in a self storage unit is liberating. Before embarking on any new adventure, all the necessary gear and equipment are packed in one place and can be prepared before the camping trip.

This means that your family can embark on their outdoor adventure with confidence, knowing they have everything they need for a good camping trip away.

As part of the preparation, planning an extensive camping trip requires careful consideration of several key issues. Good planning beforehand will ensure a smooth and enjoyable experience for the entire family.

These are some of the important deliberations:

  • Your choice of destination should gain the consent of all your family members, and you can all have lots of fun researching options and coming to an agreement on the destination. It’s like being on a trip already!
  • As the climate and weather conditions of your chosen destination will determine what you need to pack, know what you are in for beforehand. This will allow you to prepare accordingly by packing appropriate clothing, gear, and shelter to stay comfortable and safe should the weather become unfavourable.
  • Once you’ve ascertained the availability of the venue, secure the booking, and check for any additional access permits you may need to apply for. When choosing the campsite, consider factors such as terrain, shade, proximity to water sources, and potential hazards.
  • Make sure you know what amenities and facilities are available and make a note of additional camping gear that you may need to take with you to meet your family’s needs and preferences for comfort and convenience.
  • Remember to take a first aid kit and emergency supplies and ensure that all family members know safety protocols.

Camping Gear and Outdoor Equipment All Under One Roof

Having everything securely stored under one roof in your self storage rental makes it easy to find and select all your camping and outdoor equipment you need for the trip.

  • Start with a packing list that is likely to cover all essential gear, equipment, and supplies for camping, including shelter, bedding, cooking utensils, food and water, clothing, navigation tools, and personal items.
  • Know beforehand the outdoor activities and recreational opportunities that you may want to partake in, like hiking, fishing, wildlife viewing, and cycling. Select the appropriate gear and equipment for your planned activities, and don’t forget the social time together as a family when you’ll need books, games, and tennis rackets.
  • Make a list of non-perishable food items, snacks, and beverages, and plan for storage, preparation, and disposal of food waste at the campsite.
  • The ample room in a self storage unit allows you to prepare everything beforehand ready to collect on the day of departure.

Camping and Outdoor Gear: The Complete Toolkit

Here is a list of camping and outdoor gear that will help ensure your comfort, safety, and enjoyment during your trips. This is a description of the typical gear and how it might be stored:

  • Tents are usually stored in their carrying bags or containers to keep them compact and protected from dust and moisture. If not in self storage they can be stored in a garage, basement, or closet with enough space to accommodate their size.
  • Along with the tents are the sleeping bags, which are also kept in their covers and can be stored under beds or in a closet.
  • Camping chairs and tables are bulky items essential for use when having outdoor meals and relaxation. Self storage is perfectly suitable and better than having them stored folded up and stacked in a garage, shed, or basement when not in use where they can be damaged.
  • It’s important to keep cooking equipment in good order. When packing your self storage unit, best keep them stored together in plastic bins or containers to keep everything organised and easily accessible. These bins can also be stored in a garage, pantry, or utility room.
  • Outdoor gear like waterproof jackets, hiking boots, and other outdoor clothing should be stored carefully. Shoes may be stored on shoe racks or shelves near the entryway for easy access. Include your backpacks by storing them in a designated area near the door or in a closet, ready pack and go.

For families with limited storage space at home, renting a self storage unit can be a practical solution for storing camping and outdoor gear between trips.

Self storage units provide a secure and insulated environment for keeping gear organised and easily accessible, freeing up valuable space within the home for everyday use.
