Water is the most important thing a human needs to survive. Therefore, you should always plan well on how to get enough water. Find out before the camping trip whether you have to take all the water with you or whether you can get water on-site.
Please note that depending on the temperatures, activities, and personal use, you or the group may have a higher water consumption per day and per person. In this calculation, we assume a daily water consumption of 2 gallons per person.
Do you take your dog with you? Don’t forget to bring enough water for your dog or other pets!
So you should also adapt the calculation to the temperatures or individual activities. You should always have a backup plan in case you need more water. Is there a shop nearby, or a lake or river that you can take water from in an emergency? Always make sure to boil or filter water from lakes or rivers. Water from lakes or rivers can always be heavily contaminated!
