Pictures of your camp sites

Postby Friendly Family » Mon Mar 24, 2008 12:20 pm

I am new to camping and would love to get some ideas of the gear needed and the set ups of tents etc.

I would love it is everyone could post some pictures of their setups, showing the tents, equipment etc.

Thanks heaps

I think it really depends on what type of camping you are looking at doing?.. Just weekenders? Or a week or more? How many people etc etc. Are you planning on doing some bush camping or just caravan park stuff? There are alot of different setups out there catering from the weekend couple in a caravan park to the brady bunch in the middle of the bush for afew weeks.. All depend on what your looking at doing.

Hi Josh,

I guess for total beginners we are looking at starting at Caravans Parks etc. We have 2 adults and 3 kids (8,7 and 10 years).
Once we were really settled into camping we would move to more bush settings. Mostly our trips would be for long weekends and the occasional school holiday periods.

Hi FF,

Below are photo's of my set up, I prefer bush camps but have used it at the caravan park at Bribie, awning an all. l use this set up for short and long stays, usually long weekends but have gone for a week set up like this also. l just take a bigger ice box if l stay for extended stays.

The awning l picked up from ebay and is waterproof and can be enclosed on three sides, it's invaluable, l even take it for overnight camps as it's so easy to put up and take down, provides shelter and gives me a set space to cook in.

I use plastic containers, one for food, the other for kitchen gear, l mainly use a little gas canister stove for my cooking and my camp oven on the open fire.

We use airbeds and sleeping bags and don't seem to have many issues with them. I don't tend to put a tarp over my tent although on extended stays l place one under to keep the damp from coming up through the air beds.

All my gear can fit in or on my car but then there is only myself and my man/child.

Hope this sheds a little light for you.
Sorry the first photo isn't so clear and the size of them is huge.

ff not sure what camping gear you already have but try in the weekend shopper as their is a lot of bargins, but a word of warning ckeck out the camp stores first to get prices ive been caught out before. :(

as you can see in lee pics you only need a basic set up to enjoy your self,thats what camping is all about. :cheers

If you look in Chit Chat there is a post called "Hypothetical" it is a discussion about starting new campers off and what sort of gear you may require. There have been lots of camping sales on lately so have a good look around,it might take you a trip or two before you work out what you can live without and what you can`t.My suggestion would be go to places well set up with toilets, showers etc then go from there.There are lots of discussion here so have a look through and see what you find. My thing i can`t leave behind is a good quality tarp,it shelters you from all kinds of weather.
