We Heard the Peepers Last Night

April 22, 2019


Camping season has officially started.


You are so excited to go camping in April but when you get there you discover you forgot a tarp and the forecast is calling for rain.


Remember your prepping days when you had that Rubbermaid bin in the basement with everything you needed to survive the Zombie Apocalypse? I am willing to bet that there’s a tarp in there.


Spring camping offers the most amazing new experiences; the peepers, the deer, the morning ocean fog, the cacophony of newly returning songbirds but, if you want to enjoy it, take a few extra seconds to read through this checklist and be prepared.


  • Tarps

  • Ropes

  • Tent (if you are not staying in a Nordic Hut)

  • Ground Sheet (unless you are camping on a Norse Cove Tent Platform)

  • Sleeping Bags

  • Pillows

  • Foamy or Sleeping Pad

  • Lantern and/or Headlamps

  • Dry Matches

  • First Aid Kit (fun fact: owners are retired paramedics)

  • Hatchet and a Knife

  • Food

  • Cookstove (or use the Norse Cove BBQ)

  • Clothing Layers

  • Water resistant hiking boots

  • Towels (for after your Norse Cove hot shower)

  • Water bottles, plates and cutlery (mess kit)

  • Camera (for the amazing views)

  • Extras: can opener, corkscrew


Beat the bugs and the crowds! Camp early and often.
