Camping tools and camping accessories
Camping tools and accessories for when you’re in a pinch
When you’re venturing out into the wilderness, it’s important to be well-prepared. There’s no shortage of firewood to split, gear to strap down, and terrain to navigate. But with the right tools for the job, you’ll make short work of it.
Knives and multi-tools are your friends in a variety of camping scenarios. A trusty knife can tackle anything from cutting rope to opening packages to peeling apples. In addition, having a broad toolkit at your disposal in a multi-tool device (including things like scissors, a screwdriver, tweezers, and even a corkscrew) can make you a campground hero when the nearest convenience store is kilometres away.
A couple carabiners for carrying your keys and belongings are always handy to have around, and bungee cord keeps your valuables strapped down tight so they don’t fly out of the truck bed or trailer. For navigation, a magnetic compass is never a bad thing to have on hand in case of an emergency. A pair of binoculars helps you to see far and wide, and you can take notes on your findings with a notebook and pen.
Consult our camping checklist to make sure you’ve got everything you need, then get outside and put those tools to good use.
