13 Camping Essentials | What To Pack For A Camping Trip

Summer is made for spending time with family and friends! This summer we are camping with family…in fact, there are 32 of us this year!  We have actually been doing this family trip for just about 30 years now, I actually make the drive from Florida to Michigan to make sure we don’t miss out on the family fun.  We love camping and since we have been doing it for so long, I thought I would share a list of essentials that I always make sure we have when we go camping.  Hopefully it will help you out the next time you load up the car for some camping fun!

What to pack for a camping trip

13 Camping Essentials:

  1. Tent or something to sleep in (we have a RV).
  2. Air mattress or something to sleep on. Thankfully we have beds!
  3. Sleeping Bag/Blankets and Pillows.
  4. Flashlights and/or Lanterns.
  5. Bug Spray.
  6. Campfire Supplies or know of a local place you can get wood. Bring a lighter!
  7. Plates, plastic ware, something to cook with (pots/pans).
  8. Something to cook ON…grill is always nice if you have the room!  Otherwise a campfire works πŸ˜‰
  9. Food, snacks, drinks and water.
  10. Clothing (pack for all weather conditions), pjs, swimwear.
  11. Sun protection – Sunscreen, sunglasses, and hats.
  12. Toiletries.
  13. Games – we bring board games, cards, corn hole and ladder ball.

Essentials to pack for a camping trip

The only way to keep all of us boating, skiing, tubing, swimming, biking, playing corn hole, sitting by the campfire and just getting in all that family time is by having snacks ready to go at a moments notice.  No one wants to stop the fun because it’s time to eat, and that’s why I packed the camper with all our favorite NABISCO products, like Family Size OREO Cookies, Family Size RITZ Crackers, and SWEDISH FISH.

Best Camping Essentials

I needed the Family Size RITZ Crackers when it was time to enjoy tasty impromptu appetizers. We made crab dip with leftover crab from crab legs, we had a yummy cheese dip with jalapenos, and smoked whitefish pate…all were best with on a RITZ cracker πŸ˜‰

Camping trip must-haves

The kids (ok…and adults too) like to grab an OREO or two while they are biking and playing around the campground. Thank goodness I packed the package of Family Size OREO Cookies.
