Camping Checklist with Asda

Open Today

10:30 - 16:30

If you love the outdoors then you’ll love camping in the summer time. It’s a great way to get a break and let the kids run free. Whether you’re taking a trip up to the countryside or you’re a family of festival go-ers, camping is the perfect solution to enjoy a short break without having to leave the country. Asda have a huge range of products that will make the experience easier, so we’ve picked our favourites below to get you started.

First and foremost, the tent is the most important thing. Depending on your family size, you can always upgrade your old one to an inflatable tent that will make setting up and packing away a breeze, which can then be transformed into a durable storage bag for easy transportation. Tents start from as little as £20 for a 2 person tent right up to a massive 6-person tent for only £100. 

Family campers may wish to indulge in airbeds that will give you a refreshing night’s rest if sleeping bags aren’t your thing. It easily deflates for easy transport and storage leaving enough room to carry pillows and light weight blankets in case it gets chilly during the night. What's more, you can grab an ozark trail double bed for only £13!

Cooking on a camping stove can be a major challenge. A smart solution will be to take pre-made frozen dinner, tinned food and snacks. Just make sure you bring other essentials such as knives and forks, plates and cups. Asda have a great range to choose from, including our favourite the colourful 12 piece tropical picnic set. 

Don't forget to pick up games to keep the kids entertained, including the little tikes clear bowling set for £20 or the jumbo badminton rackets and ball for only £8.
