The time to organize these summer holidays has come! And if you have decided to go camping this year, you are one of the 22 million campers that France welcomes each year. And yes, France ranks number 1 among European countries with the most of this type of accommodation on its territory.

According to Statista, “As of January 1, 2023, there were more than 861,103 campsites in France, spread over 7,432 pitches. It can be seen that a high share of land and pitches is in 3 and 4 star campsites. We can observe that there are only 260 5-star campsites in France, which still have more than 97,500 pitches”. But then, what should we bring for our camping holidays? Find the list of necessary equipment in our slideshow, available below.

Choosing your camping equipment can sometimes be a difficult task. You have to be able to distinguish between the material that is necessary and the material that is not. In addition, depending on your budget and the desired comfort, you have to know how to get the right deals. The ideal is to go try everything and compare in specialized stores. Then, if the gear you want is beyond your budget, go to thrift sites and apps so you can have all the gear you need. Find the list of essential equipment for your camping holiday in our slideshow.
