Camping at a beach is a unique experience.
Whether you camp on an ocean beach or at a lake or river RV park there is some beach camping gear that you wouldn’t use camping in the woods.
Yet much of what you will use beach camping is also used by folks who prefer other camping venues.
Things like grills, outdoor folding tables and chairs, bed linens, dishes and cooking pots all can be used to you make camping easier no matter where you camp or what kind of mobile home or tent you have.
Some clothing items you may need at the beach are swim suits, bathing caps, beach shoes or flip-flops and sunglasses and a wide brimmed hat.
Kids playing on the beach should wear a life jacket. Everyone in the party should know how to swim. If you have a boat and the beach RV park allows it, you can fish or just cruise the coast. Everyone on board should wear a life jacket. Check with the RV park or state and local authorities to see if you need a permit to fish. Also find out if it is OK to put ashore.
Don’t forget to bring the fishing poles, water skis and jet skis. Again find out if there are rules about how far from shore you must be or if skis are even allowed in the area.
Be aware that sandy ocean beaches can have shells and other debris washed up by the tide or trash left behind by inconsiderate campers. So wear sandals and make sure the kids do also.
Folding chairs and tables for eating outdoors are a must and sun worshipers will want folding chaise lounges, suntan lotion or sunscreen with an SPF of 15 or more. Sunglasses and hats are advisable for everyone.
If you are going to camp at a fresh water beach, be aware that the area is likely forested. Gear for this type of beach camping is a combination of standard camping gear and ocean beach supplies.
Fishing, boating, water and jet skiing can all be enjoyed in fresh water as well as in the ocean. Many hunters also are Rvers and camp near a lake or river as a base camp. Since hunting season in most areas is during the fall and winter, warm clothing is a necessity. You will also want sturdy boots, warm hats, gloves and maybe even earmuffs.
Check with local authorities about what permits or licenses will be needed. Be careful about campfires, you may need a permit for that also. Never keep a loaded gun in your RV. It is not only dangerous but illegal in most states. Most outdoor/camping stores carry gun racks or cases that can help you transport your firearms safely.
Who would ever have thought that guns could be considered camping gear? One caution, many campgrounds both public and private forbid the possession of weapons on campground property. So check before you go.
The type of food you bring depends on your taste and storage ability. You don’t want to bring a lot of fresh or frozen food, if you don’t have the ability to keep it from spoiling. So when planning your camping trip, be sure to bring coolers of ice, or even better, an extra electric freezer.
Beach camping is becoming more popular all the time. People like the idea of being able to enjoy sun, surf and sand without spending a lot of money on hotels and restaurant meals. So you will likely find more outdoor and camping stores devoting more advertising to beach camping gear.
