Camping Essentials and Lake Trip Outfits

With summer being in full effect, it is the perfect time to plan your next camping trip or cabin weekend. Cabin weekends and camping trips are great for spending time with the family, a romantic getaway with your significant other, or a fun girls' or boys' weekend.

For Swimming

When it comes to planning your next camping or cabin weekend, you are going to need to pack comfy and practical outfits. The first thing you are going to need is a swimsuit, especially if you are going to be near a lake. Lands' End has an extensive selection of men's, women's, and kid's swimsuits. Luckily, Lands' End has a wide array of colors and styles to choose from. Check out our extensive selection for men, women, and kids to get the whole family ready for some fun-in-the-sun!

A great option for a women's swimsuit would be the women's one-piece swimsuit. One Piece swimsuits are great because they provide more coverage but are also not restrictive, giving them movability. This is a great feature to have in a swimsuit especially if you plan on partaking in some water sport activities with your family. For men, we have swim trunks or board shorts. The main difference between the two is that board are longer than swim trunks. In addition, we have a lot of great swimwear options for kids. Our kids swim collection has a variety of colors, styles, and sizes to choose from.

Hiking & Active Wear

Now that you have your swimsuit, you need casual outfit options. You are going to need something cool and comfortable to enjoy a nice hike outside. For women, you might want to try a pair of biker shorts and a T-shirt. This outfit will have a lot of breathability and movability perfect for a summer hike. For men, men's activewear shorts and a men's T-shirt would be a comfortable outfit to wear on a hike or camping. You could also wear this look with a pair of sneakers or hiking boots. For kids, you want to pack a comfortable movable outfit. This way, the kids will be able to explore and play in this outfit. A kids T-shirt paired with a pair of leggings or shorts is another comfortable outfit perfect for playing in. You could pair any of these looks with sneakers or hiking boots especially if the family is going on a family hike.

For Chilly Nights & Rainy Days

You can't pack for any trip without an emergency sweatshirt. Lands' End has plenty of colors and styles for the whole family to choose from. This will be especially important for those chilly nights around the campfire. Another good idea would be to pack a raincoat or rain jacket. Granted, you're hoping the weather will be nice on your trip, but on the off chance you get stuck in a rainstorm during your hike, it would be smart to have a rain jacket. Lands' End has plenty of options for men, women, and kids to choose from. Now that you have some swim and outfit options, it is time to pack the essentials.

Now that you have all your outfits for a perfect cabin or camping trip, you need all your Camping/Cabin Trip gear essentials.

Stay Portable

The first essential you may need for your next camping trip is a backpack. This is a great way to carry some of your essentials. Being able to just throw your bag on your back makes it more efficient for you, especially if you might be doing a lot of walking to get to your campsite. For the the lake, you'll need a canvas tote bag. The cotton canvas tote bag has a durable bottom, and its handles are reinforced so it can support a heavy load, making it the perfect beach bag to carry your laptop or whatever you require. The material of the bag is water-resistant which protects it and keeps your things from getting wet. Utility wagons are great for loading up all your necessities like food, tents, and sleeping bags, etc. The Utility wagon has all-terrain wheels. This portable utility wagon has a sturdy collapsible wagon with a quick and easy set-up. This folding wagon packs away compactly and sets up easily.


The fusion camping chair is an outdoor portable chair. It is a camping chair that could be used as a beach chair, and even a lawn chair for relaxation. The chair is lightweight enough to be easily portable yet strong enough to hold up to 350 lbs. This folding backpack chair has its own cooler. Another great essential is the portable folding picnic table with seats--this pop-up camping table for you has a durable frame, basket weave seats and solid ABS plastic tabletop. It has an umbrella hole, and this table is highly portable and compact with a fold-away design. This will be great to have for the family to sit together and eat breakfast, lunch, and dinner at.

Keep Comfy & Dry

Another essential is a sleeping bag. Lands' End has some great options for kids sleeping bags that have an attachable pillow. We also have a portable dog bed for your furry friend to be extra comfy on your next family camping trip or cabin weekend. For swimming and bathing, don't forget to bring your Lands' End rugby towel.
