But if you have a long hike planned or are camping in the backcountry, you’ll need to camp near a water source and bring along a water filtration system. Yeti makes one that you can throw over your shoulder (or they even have a backpack version).If you’re camping near water or have running water at your campsite, all you’ll need to do is bring along a sponge, a towel, and some biodegradable dish soap — you can use Dr. Bronner's Pure-Castile Liquid Soap for everything (including your face). Instant coffee will be the lightest way to get your caffeine fix, or you can bring along a plastic drip coffee maker (this one weighs less than 3 ounces).If you were able to park your car nearby and have a lazy morning on the books, you can opt for eggs, bacon, and a French press-brewed mug of Joe.Related: 14 Camping Breakfast Recipes That'll Make Your Next Trip So Much BetterIt doesn’t matter if you’re car camping or high in the backcountry, a PB&J is easy to pre-make, wrap in tin foil, and pack along on any hike, fly fishing trip, or paddle board excursion.An energy bar, some pretzels, and a bag of gummies (my go-to) will keep you moving throughout the day.If you’re backpacking or you hiked to your camp spot, you’ll want to pick a meal that’s lightweight and simple.
