Master Camping List

March 21, 2018 | Outdoors, Travel

Let’s not forget the tent this time.

Our first camping trip of 2018 is officially booked! This year, I want to be extra prepared and organized instead of staring at each other in the driveway saying, “I feel like we’re forgetting something.”

Preparing for a camping trip can be a lot of work – trying to remember every little detail is often overwhelming. So this year, I thought I’d turn to the experts: the Camping King and Queen, also referred to as, dad and mom. They’ve been camping their entire lives so they have things down to a tee.

My mom created this awesome master camping list outlining every possible thing you would need. So today, I’m sharing that list with you!
