How to Pack for a Camping Trip

Fall is a great time to take the family camping. The cool weather is comfortable for sleeping and outdoor activities! Camping is a great way to spend quality time with your family, but you must be prepared so things go smoothly.

Research

It is important to research the campground or area where you are going to stay. Some campgrounds have accommodations such as restrooms, showers, and fire pits. If these luxuries are not provided in the area you plan on traveling to, you must pack accordingly.

What to pack

What you pack depends on how long you plan to be gone. If you plan on staying for one night, you can get away with packing a lot less than you would pack for a 3-4 night adventure. Food supplies are something people typically forget to bring. You can’t just pack what you will eat, you must also plan for how you’re going to cook it and how you’re going to store it. If you plan on making PB&Js you must pack the bread, jelly, and peanut butter. But you must also pack the knife to spread it, the plate to eat it on, the napkin to wipe your mouth, and what you’re going to use to clean these items.

The next important thing to think about is your sleeping arrangements. There is more to it than just packing a tent — you must pack items that will make your time camping as comfortable as possible. Pack according to the weather. If it is going to be 40 degrees during your stay, you must pack enough blankets and pillows to keep you and your family warm. If it gets extremely cold, you may even consider packing a small heater.

One of the most nostalgic memories for most people is the campfire and s’more tradition at the end of the night. Depending on the location you choose, you may need to be prepared to start your fire from scratch. This includes bringing or cutting your firewood and matches or other starters to start a fire. Random items you might find helpful during your stay may include toilet paper, insect repellent, baby wipes, and toys for small children.
