    I am planning my first ever camping trip for our vacation and I wanted to get some ideas on basic things we may need..also, I would like to know what the best place you've ever camped in the USA.

    One of the best places I've ever been camping was in Washington State. We stayed at a campground right on the beach and the Olympic National Park, near La Push. I think overall Washington State camping parks offer the best opportunity for a camping trip because of the amazing scenery, big evergreen forests, the mighty Pacific surf, huge monolith rock formations right at the beach and spectacular sunsets.

    Camping basics you need are:
    - maps of the area
    - lantern
    - water & food
    - cooking stove
    - hiking boots
    - layers of clothing
