As you know, I recently got home from a much needed vacation to Albuquerque, NM for some camping and hiking. This was my first time camping that I was responsible for making sure we had everything we needed. Usually we go camping with my family, and my mom is a master at camping. She literally thinks of EVERYTHING you would need. If you forgot it, don’t worry, mom has 10 of them in her camping tote. Needless to say, I was worried I was going to forget something (turns out I did) so I wrote out list after list of what to bring. I thought since I had conveniently written everything down, that I would type up a free printable list of what to pack when camping to help you out!
It’s never fun to get all the way to your destination and realize you forgot something. Luckily, we were camping with my husbands aunt and uncle, who are PROs when it comes to living off the grid. They have a nice little camper that they keep stocked with everything you might need. When my husband and I were using a rock to try to hammer in the stakes for the tent into the hard NM ground, they conveniently provided us with a mallet.
Anyway, hopefully this FREE list of what to pack when camping will help some of you out. If you think of anything I may have forgot feel free to leave it in a comment so others can add it to their list!
