I have to keep around a Camping Packing list of everything to take camping, because otherwise I’ll forget the most important thing like the camping tent! Until last week I had my list on my phone. When the phone went dead I lost my list. I decided to make another here on my blog that way it is always handy and I can’t lose it again! Medicine is always at the top of any packing list, because unfortunately we’ve had at least two camping trips cut short because we forgot our daughter’s medicine.
Here is my list of essential Camping Gear!
Medicine: Prescription, allergy medicine, anti bug itch cream, pain reliever, heartburn tablets
Sleeping Bags (Winter weight)
Bag of ice
Block of ice
Frisbee and other outdoor toys
Scooters (if there is sidewalk)
Games: Head Banz
Camping Stove preferably one with a coffee maker
Jackets & fleece pull overs
Shower shoes (we use flip flops)
How to make camping easier!
There are a few ways to make your camping trip easier on yourself. For example, did you know that they have tents that are super easy to set up called Instant Tents. The same thing goes for a lot of the items like a hammock set up in a little bag. Here is a list of camping hacks to make the entire event easier on yourself.
- Get an instant pop up tent.
- Before you leave the house, prepare as much food as possible. Chop, dice, measure, and mix what you can.
- Use some rope to create a clothesline between two trees. It’s ideal for drying towels and clothes.
- Use small bungee cords to hang paper towels up under the awning.
