The title says it all: this is my personal, comprehensive list of what to bring camping with you. The first part of this post is a simple checklist of camping essentials for anyone spending time outdoors, whether you're a bare-bones camper or the most glamorous glamper. The second part explains how to upgrade from camping to glamping! To print out this list, click the button below.
Feminine hygiene products
Dining set (plates, bowls, utensils, cups)
Sports gear (kayaks, fishing poles, bikes, etc.)
Well, that's just about everything I have on my basic camping checklist. Typically, I keep all of these items packed and ready to go in a few duffels and hardy plastic bins. That way, when we're leaving on a trip, we can just load up all of our pre-packed stuff and go.
If you're looking for a glampier experience, your checklist is a little more open-ended. There is a wide range of possible items you could bring to enhance your trip, so I'll just mention a few essentials that will upgrade your camping trip to a glamping trip:
Storage towers to organize your items
Full set of kitchen utensils (measuring spoons/cups, spatula, tongs, etc.)
Glamping doesn't have to be complicated! Essentially, bring anything and everything you need to feel cozy and at-home at your campsite. Favorite blanket? Bring it! Chandelier? Why not! Table decor? Yes! For other tips on how to turn camping into glamping, try this.
Stick to this list and I promise you will have a great time, wherever you go. With the essentials and good company, it's impossible to go wrong!
