water containers, drinking water filters
Water while camping is one of the most important elements of the trip. Camping next to a creek is ideal, but not always available. Water filters for adequate drinking water; water containers for easy tap water; water basins for washing dishes; water buckets for extinguishing your campfire.
The newer Base Camp gravity fed filters will save you needing to constantly hand pump water!
From our decades of experience camping – the soft, collapsible containers tend to puncture or leak (eventually), which is why we recommend the hard plastic water containers.
Camping next to water is always a plus, but you must have a bucket to properly manage your fire and your washing needs. Remember to wash dishes away from the lake or creek, and please use biodegradable soaps!
