  • Keep supplies in a well marked, durable, waterproof container
  • Keep the contents organized

  • Inspect content often, re-supply as needed
  • Keep readily available at all times

  1. Hydrogen peroxide should probably be taken off the list, at least if it’s on the list for skin cleaning. It hasn’t been recommended for wound care for a while because it actually damages healthy skin.

  2. Thank you for providing your camping checklist. My list is just as long and it keeps me in check so that I don’t forget the essentials. It’s a living breathing checklist that changes & improves with each camping trip. I’m going to review yours as you may have some things that I can add to mine. Thanks again.

  3. Great detailed list, I’m one that likes to take just the basics an not a lot of unnecessary items camping is a lot of fun we have done quite a few just a small tip check the local weather first, rain can dampen the experience.

  5. Very good list, thank you. In regards to the complainers about it being too long: the list serves as a guide for things to bring. Use what works for you and dismiss what doesn’t. How difficult was that?…I thought so 🙂
