A Camper’s Christmas List – 2016 Edition

It’s that time of year! Christmas is definitely in the air – lights are popping up all over the place and decorations are starting to make their way out of storage. With less than a month to go until the big day, it is getting close to crunch time for all that shopping. We all have that on person who is hard to shop for; the person we leave until the last minute because we just can’t figure it out! Well, we can help with that…if they are a camping fanatic, that is. We have put together a list of some great camping gadgets and gear that many of our campers will want (or already have!) on their list. Check them out below!

1. Waterproof Socks & Thermal Socks


Weather can be unpredictable (especially during summer on PEI), so you want to be prepared for anything. These waterproof socks would be great for those rainy days, or even for the beach! And those evenings out by the fire can get chilly, so keep your toes warm and cozy in a pair of thermal socks.

Waterproof Socks – $21.99 – $49.99 USD (Amazon.com)

Thermal Socks – $11.99 USD (Amazon.com)

2. RV GPS System

3. Mummy Sleeping Bag


A good sleeping bag is a necessity for tent camping. You want something that will keep you warm, dry and that is also comfortable. A mummy-style sleeping bag covers all those!
