Camping is awesome! Really makes the trip for me. I avoid established campgrounds. Backpacking gear is the way to go, but like others have said start out with inexpensive stuff from walmart or similar til you decide what you really want. I've actually had pretty good luck with the coleman stuff, except tents. You don't have to spend a million bucks either, most of my stuff is used from craigslist!!!
