Family Camping Supplies and Tips
When my family goes camping, it’s my job to make sure that all of the family camping supplies and camping gear are packed into the car. After a few seasons of trial and error, overpacking and underpacking, I have come up with a Camping Checklist that covers all of our basic needs… with some wiggle room for extras.
Now, this is not a list for people who hike in the back country, carrying only a spoon and 3 matches. This is camping with a family, in a campground. National Parks are our favorites, so we generally don’t spend a lot of time in places with loads of amenities. (So, I can’t expect a fully stocked grocery store, hardware store or drugstore… and you can forget Costco.)
Save time and money by bringing along what you need. Shopping on the road can get expensive… especially if you already have the item at home!
Take a look at my Camping Checklist… compare it to what you and your family might want to take along. I’ve organized it in sections… sleeping, eating, clothing, activities etc., where each section describes the item. Consider using it as a guideline for packing for your next camping trip.
Where will you go for your family camping trip this year? There are so many choices from beach, desert, mountains, forest to lakeside. My favorites are close by here in the west. Just a quick drive to many great options and I always make sure to bring Family camping Supplies.
