Remote Beach Camping in Texas is something unique which can be experienced in several different beaches along the Gulf Coast. There are a handful of State Parks along the shore which provide a more traditional State Park experience such as shower facilities, power, and potable water access. But where’s the fun in that? If you’re looking to go remote beach camping where there’s no one around for miles, this is the packing list for you.
This Remote Beach Camping Packing List is specifically designed for beach environments. There are items in this list which would not be useful in typical State Park camping such as the portable toilet setup. All items in the list are categorized in sections to help identify if you need that specific piece of gear for your trip. This list is by no means complete, I am constantly adding and removing items as I take more and more trips. After every trip I take note of what items I needed and which I didn't use. The items listed below are what I am currently taking on Remote Beach Camping trips.
The bulk of these items fall under the Camp Box category but all this gear doesn’t necessarily need to be stored in one location. For example, the headlamp and flashlights can be kept inside the tent or in a backpack for quick access. The camping chairs, sun screen, and bug spray will be out in the open and in constant use.
Listed under Fishing Gear, my backpack contains all the gear I need in order to fish for a full day without needing to run out to my truck or the store. I generally keep several different weights, hooks, fishing line, lures, and baits inside of the backpack. Using the small generic fishing storage boxes keeps all these items organized which makes finding them easier.
