Camping List

If you are new to camping it may seem overwhelming to begin to gather the camping gear you will need.

Here are a couple of thoughts to keep in mind: 

  • 1)You may already have many items that can be "re-purposed" as camping supplies.
  • 2) Purchasing camping equipment can be an investment in years of outdoor fun and relaxation.

Once you have a "stash" of essentials from this camping equipment list, you are set for years of enjoyment at little additonal cost.

What is Missing From Your Camping List?

Camping Equipment Checklist:

We've broken down our camping necessities into several categories. The first is a Camping Equipment Checklist that includes major pieces of essential camping gear that are "must haves" for any comfortable camping experience.

This camping list for backpacking has recommended gear for your specific needs.

Camping Checklists for Your Camping Kitchen:

The Camping Kitchen check list offers our reviews and recommendations for the equipment you will want to have with you to be able to create tasty, and easy, camping meals.

Food to Take Camping will give you ideas for the best foods to pack for meals and snacks throughout your days in the campground. Learn the advantages of fresh versus dried foods and some substitutes to add to your camping list to save space and money.

Easy Camping Recipes will show you how to use the foods you take with you to create tasty, healthy...and easy!...meals.

Your camping equipment checklist will vary according to your camping destination. You can haul more stuff to an easily accessible campground in one of out Minnesota State Parks than you will be able to portage in to your remote campsite on a Boundary Waters Minnesota vacation or into Voyageurs National Park.

Be sure to add a Camping First Aid Kit to your camping checklist.

Cteating a list for camping can be confusing. You are trying to pack everything you need to live for a week or so into "mini" versions of the same things you need when you are at home. Here is an extensive Free Printable Camping List

Modify it for the type of trip you will be taking.
