5 Music Essentials to Bring on Your Next Camping Trip

A Group of Campers

Camping is the simplest way to reconnect with nature. It can naturally detoxify your mind, body, and soul from how your daily grind can wear you down. Many people find that music is also a good way to calm your mind and let go of any worries you may have at the end of a workday. For the ultimate experience, you can bring the outdoors and your music together.

You can do that by bringing these five music essentials on your next camping trip:

Portable Wireless Outdoor Speaker

These four words say it all. Having a portable wireless outdoor speaker means you can bring your music wherever you go. Whether you’re fishing in the middle of the lake or sitting around a campfire, your music can be that clingy partner you just can’t live without.

Music Player

Your music player is your speaker’s best friend. It can be a regular mp3 player or your iPhone. Whatever it is, you can still listen to your favorite tunes without having to connect to the Internet, and that’s one thing you want to avoid if you’re trying to spend some quality time with mother nature.

Acoustic Guitar or Ukulele

Most nature lovers know how to play these simple instruments. If your music players run out of battery, you’ll have these instruments to bring out the musician in you.


The djembe is one of the most famous African musical instruments. It’s handy and it creates several earthy beats that can enhance your outdoor meditation as you move or breathe with each sound.


If you just can’t live without music, even in your sleep, your headphones can always be your intimate companion when everyone else wants peace and quiet.

Level-up on your next camping experience and bring your music with you through these essentials. They’re not difficult to pack and will always have space in the music lover’s camping gear.
