A camping checklist is most helpful when it has everything you’ll need to be comfortable. You should always put together a list and go through it more than once just to make sure you’re good to go. There’s nothing worse than showing up to a campsite only to realize you need something!
Don’t forget to bring ample toilet paper and other bathroom items like toothpaste. There are going to always be things that are specific to the people that are going on the trip so make sure everyone adds what they need to the list. You don’t want to only bring items that are for you and have to run out to get some for everyone else because you forgot. Try going to the store with everyone when stocking up, if possible, and make them bring their own lists along. Take along extras of everything you can just in case.
Do you have enough clothing to last you? What about medications, have you gone to the doctor to get extras if you’re going to be going on vacation for a while? There are some things you just can’t get while you’re out camping, because they are personalized items. You need to make sure you have glasses, if those are a part of your wardrobe, and get extras of them on board too. You never know when something will break or when a disaster will happen that causes you any number of issues like losing some of your supplies.
When you put together a camping checklist, you will have a better time. It’s easy to make sure you have what you need and that you are prepared to enjoy yourself. All it takes is you following the above tips and making them work for you.
