Everyone has their own ideal as to what items to bring on a camping trip. It can be going out into nature with one or two items to going out into nature with enough items to fillup a large mobile home.
America Camping Xplorers know that having a checklist is one of the most important pieces of information to review before going camping. A checklist is helpful in keeping you organized and possible ensuring equipment is not forgotten at home or at the campsite. There is nothing worse than getting to a site after a long journey, and unpacking to find you’ve forgotten the tent.
We compiled a comprehensive checklist for any camping endeavors to include a specific camping area.
If you have children coming along they might want to bring specific items. Place the responsibilities on them to pack their own personal gear in a backpack. This will limit them to what they can bring and teach them to make the best choice in what they need during packing. Having their own checklist will keep them excited and focus on the trip.
You can download and customize any of the checklists relevant to your trip. You should make checkmarks and add or remove items to suit your needs before rolling out the driveway. There is no need in taking gear you do not need.
During your trip you can remember what you need and don’t need for the next trip by writing it down in a notebook. If there is something that you think we should put on our list, please let us know by the checklist blog.
