This compact and fast drying towel by Tesalate is a life saver item. It has been voted the number one gear item to have on hand by the Gowhee App families! Its uses are endless (beach, lake, shower, mess clean up etc…) and the space it takes up is close to none! So, do yourself a favor and grab a few of these for your next camping trip.

Being a traveling family is also being conscientious about our impact on the environment. So, for your camping trip choose a common gallon of water to share with the whole group and refill those super durable and kid-friendly Klean Kanteen water bottles.

This little hiccapop Inflatable Toddler Travel Bed with Safety Bumpers is great to help the kids not fall off their air mattress. And since it comes in two parts, we also love to use the base for bath or water play. This makes it a great item to have for your little ones.

When little accidents happen (because they always seem to), we are glad to quickly pull out this super efficient and adorable kid-friendly first aid kit by Keepgoingkit! We love the stickers and all the necessities it provides, but also importantly, we adore that it is a mom-based business!

If your kiddos (and yourself) are the preferred buffet item for mosquitos during a camping trip, you will need one of these Para’Kito Natural Kids Mosquito Repellent Wristbands. We especially love the fact that you can just refill the product base pellet, which makes it a great eco option; and the waterproof feature is great as well. But the best feature of all is that it actually works! No one enjoys putting some DEET on a brand new baby’s skin … This will be a game changer when it comes to night time.

Counting on stroller friendly trails for all your hikes is wishful thinking! So this item is a true must-have. We selected our Gowhee families’ top favorite. The Tula Ergonomic Carrier comes in 2 sizes based on your child’s weight and offers so many amazing features. We love the organic material and the wide padded waist band. Comfort is number one when choosing a carrier for hikes, and this one is top notch!
