If you are a person who goes camping every weekend you may have the list of items you need to take along memorized in your mind. Most people only go camping occasionally and it is very easy to forget something important!

Camping involves a lot of gear and it is shocking how leaving a simple item at home can really mess up a weekend.

I have been known to put more on my plate than I can handle and without a camping checklist printable I would definitely forget something critical like toilet paper!

Every camping trip is different and there may be a few items on this checklist that you don’t need for your trip. No problem, just mark through those items and focus on the stuff your group will need to take along!


There are several sections on this camping checklist printable. Some of the items are things you would take on any trip, but many are specific for camping.

A clothing section is something you will find on any vacation packing list (I hope, LOL). The personal section will include toiletries that will be needed for any kind of travel.

The campsite, safety gear and food/misc columns are very specific for a camping trip.

If you are  curious about all things camping be sure to check out the National Park Service’s camping page!

The camping section includes items that are part of setting up your campsite. These needs will vary a little bit based on if you are tent camping or staying in a camper or cabin.

Here are some of the items on the campsite section:

One big part of camping is the food. This can be a make or break part of the trip based on how organized and prepared you are with the food and supplies. The camp kitchen is so important to a great vacation!

It is really important to plan ahead for what you will eat while you are camping. Make a menu plan and be very specific about what each meal contains because if you don’t bring it with you it won’t be available!

Remember to think though all the different pots, pans and utensils you may need. To cut down on how much “stuff” you have to take along try to plan meals that can all be made with a pot or a frying pan!

Another great idea is to make foil dinner packets to reduce clean up time.

One thing that is easy to overlook are spices! Salt and pepper are a must and I usually bring along some seasoned salt to cover a lot of bases with one seasoning.
