Most camping horror stories share a common theme; they are tales of sleeping on rock-hard ground and being freezing cold. There is no need to put yourself through this agony! When you camp, three elements will ensure that you will have a good night's sleep: shelter, comfort and warmth. A tent provides shelter, a mattress and pillow raise the comfort bar and insulate you from the cold ground, and a good sleeping bag will keep you warm and snug. And then there are useful items that make camping even better. We've selected our favourites for you.
