Heacham Beach Camping Gear Checklist

Going camping is a great way to get out in nature and enjoy the outdoors. However, if you don't have the proper gear, it can be uncomfortable and even dangerous. A camping gear checklist can help make sure you have everything you need for a successful trip. 

One of the most important things to remember is to pack light. Make sure to pack essentials like food, water, clothing, and first-aid supplies, and then consider what other items might be helpful depending on the type of camping trip you're taking.

  • Tent: A good tent is essential for a comfortable camping trip. Make sure to select one that's the right size for your group and the type of camping you're doing. Don't forget a tarp to use as a groundsheet, and some stakes to keep it in place.

  • Sleeping Bag: A good sleeping bag will keep you warm at night. Choose one that's rated for the temperature range you'll be camping in, and make sure it's comfortable enough to sleep in. You may also want to bring along a blanket or two for extra warmth on colder nights.

  • Camping Pillow: A pillow can make all the difference when trying to get a good night's sleep while camping. Choose one that's lightweight and easy to pack so you don't have to lug around a bulky pillowcase.

  • Headlamp: A headlamp is essential for any type of camping trip, whether you're hiking, fishing, or just setting up camp after dark. It frees up your hands so you can do other things, and it's much more convenient than carrying around a flashlight. Be sure to pack extra batteries just in case.

  • Camping Stove: If you're planning on doing any cooking while camping, you'll need a stove. Choose one that's easy to set up and use, and make sure it's the right size for your group. Don't forget the fuel!

  • Cooler: A cooler is essential for keeping food and drinks cold while camping. Make sure it's big enough to hold everything you need, but not so big that it's cumbersome to carry.

  • First-Aid Kit: A first-aid kit is a must-have for any type of camping trip. Be sure to pack bandages, antibiotic ointment, pain relievers, and anything else you might need in case of an emergency.

  • Matches: You'll need matches or a lighter to start your campfires. Be sure to pack them in a waterproof container so they don't get wet.

  • Bug Spray: Bug spray is essential for keeping mosquitoes and other pests away while camping. Choose one that's effective against the types of insects you're likely to encounter and be sure to pack extra in case you run out.

  • Sunscreen: Don't forget the sunscreen! Even if it's not sunny outside, the UV rays can still be harmful. Choose a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30, and reapply it regularly throughout the day.

  • Hat: A hat is a great way to protect your face from the sun. Choose one that's comfortable to wear and won't blow off in the wind.

  • Sunglasses: Sunglasses are essential for protecting your eyes from the sun's harmful UV rays. Make sure they fit well so they don't fall off, and choose a style that blocks out as much sunlight as possible.

  • Hiking Boots: If you're planning on doing any hiking while camping, you'll need a good pair of hiking boots. Make sure they're comfortable and broken-in before you hit the trail, and be sure to pack extra socks in case your feet get sweaty.

  • Camping Chair: A camping chair is great for sitting around the campfire or just relaxing at the campsite. Choose one that's comfortable and easy to carry so you can take it anywhere.

  • Water Bottle: Don't forget to pack a water bottle! Be sure to fill it up before you leave so you have enough to drink throughout the trip.

Heacham Beach Camping FAQ!

I have never stayed at a campsite before - how does it work?

We recommend that you book your stay (the easiest way is on our campsite's website), then show up on the day. When booking please also understand that site amenities (such as a shower block, toilets and washing-up area) are all provided for your convenience, though there may be separate charges depending on the type of site you choose to reserve. After you’ve set up camp, head out and explore! If you have any questions or concerns while on the grounds, do not hesitate to settle them with our friendly staff.

Do you need to have a motorhome or tent to stay at a campsite?

Generally speaking, yes - most campsites will require that you stay in a campervan or tent. Some sites may have other accommodation options such as cabins, but this is usually the exception rather than the rule. Heacham Beach Camping, South Beach Road, we have a number of different accommodations for example Shepherds huts, Luxury Glamping bell tents, Cottages, apartments, and of course campsites for caravans and tents. Please navigate through our website to find the correct listing you would like to stay in.

Which season is best for camping?

That all depends on what you want. The summer is the most popular camping season when one can soak up more rays and swim around the clock, but more and more people are discovering the charms of the great outdoors in spring and autumn (and even winter). The off-season is probably the best time for those who want peace and quiet, with the coast to themselves. 

Our Nature Saving Pledge

Clean Heacham Beach Camping

Heacham Beach Camping is all about spending time with your loved ones and reconnecting with nature. And we want nothing more than to share this wonderful part of Norfolk with you and all that nature has to enjoy.

Here at Heacham Beach Camping, we are committed to respecting the countryside and keeping it clean. We operate under and encourage a leave-no-trace ethos to all our guests, which means that when visiting the countryside you leave no trace of your visit to our Heacam Beach Camping site and leave it exactly in the state it was when you arrived. It's this way of thinking that we hope to imprint on all who pass through our corner of the world which will help to ensure the protection of our precious countryside and the wildlife that live here.

The Countryside Code

The Countryside Code is supported by Natural England.

Protect The Environment

  • Take your litter home – leave no trace of your visit
  • Do not light fires and only have BBQs where signs say you can
  • Always keep dogs under control and insight
  • Dog poo – bag it and bin it – any public waste bin will do
  • Care for nature – do not cause damage or disturbance
  • Enjoy The Outdoors
  • Check your route and local conditions
  • Plan your adventure – know what to expect and what you can do
  • Enjoy your visit, have fun, make a memory

Leave No Trace

  • Plan ahead and prepare
  • Be Considerate of others
  • Respect Farm animals and wildlife
  • Travel and camp on durable ground
  • Leave what you find
  • Dispose of waste properly
  • Minimise the effects of fire
The Seashore Code

Show Respect For Seashore Creatures

Seashore creatures are fascinating and have found special ways of living in their environment. They have to adapt to survive the rigours of wave-action, exposure and predation. Some have shells for protection, but many need to hide under rocks, seaweed or in the sand.

Exploring The Seashore Is Fun, But Please Remember:

  • Leave animals where you find them.
  • Take care when touching soft-bodied animals - they are very delicate.
  • Carefully lift and replace any rocks you may have moved - there are animals underneath which need them for shelter.
  • Leave attached seaweed in place - there is plenty lying loose on the strand line.
  • Do not trample through rock pools.

Take Photos, Not Living Animals

  • Shells come in all shapes, sizes and colours. Many still contain living animals, even if they do look 'dead'. If you want to collect shells, please make sure they are empty before taking them home.

If you want to buy a souvenir:

  • Buy a photograph, book or poster of colourful marine creatures rather than shells, coral, starfish and urchins or other 'marine curios'. Remember 'curios' would almost certainly have been alive, when collected. If we don't buy them, the shops won't sell them.

Avoid Disturbing Wildlife

You can see many animals at their best when they are behaving naturally. This is true for animals such as seals, otters and seabirds, as well as rock pool animals. To avoid disturbing wildlife:

  • It is best to watch from a distance, through binoculars if possible, especially if the animals are nesting, or pupping in the case of seals.
  • Keep your dog clear of birds and other animals.
  • Remember, it is now illegal to disturb or harass many species of birds and animals.

Take Your Rubbish Home With You

Beach rubbish is unsightly and can be dangerous to sea creatures. Much of the litter on our shores comes from tourists, shipping, fishing vessels and sewage outfalls. You can help to reduce this problem when visiting the coast:

  • Take your rubbish home - burying it is no solution.
  • Keep your dog from fouling the beach.
  • Report canisters or drums that may be washed up on the beach, but do not touch them.
  • Take part in BeachWatch - the annual beach clean and survey organised by the Marine Conservation Society, or Adopt-a-Beach - a regular survey of beach litter.
  • Bag It and Bin It, Please Don't Flush It - bag and bin all plastic bathroom waste such as cotton bud sticks.

Watch Where You Go

Beaches and sand dunes are prone to erosion and easily damaged by people and vehicles. To help protect the coast:

  • Keep to established paths and dune boardwalks.
  • Park in designated car parks and keep access to footpaths clear.
  • Do not use beaches or dunes for scrambling motorcycles or other 'off-road' vehicles.
  • If you dig holes in the beach, please fill them up again.
  • Leave pebbles and rocks on the beach rather than collect them for your garden.

Be Careful!

All cliffs are unstable and potentially dangerous, yet they are an impressive sight and from the cliff top it is possible to enjoy a panoramic view of the coastline. Cliffs also provide a very specialised habitat for the plants and animals that live on them.

Take Care Near Cliffs:

  • Remember that it is dangerous to climb up or go near the top or bottom of a cliff.
  • Please don't throw or push anything over the edge of cliffs. As well as being dangerous, it can increase the rate of cliff erosion and kill or disturb wildlife.
  • Play safe on the beach too: Check tide times to avoid being cut off. Keep away from soft sand and mud - it is easy to get stuck!
