The Ultimate Camping Packing List

I've thought of everything for you and put it all in this post. Screenshot it, print it, or write it down. Making a packing list is one less thing you have to do before going on that adventure!






As someone who was born and raised in the PNW, the outdoors are a huge part of my life. My parents were both avid camping enthusiasts and I'm fairly certain I could help pitch a tent before I could talk. I've got loads of knowledge and have put together an extensive, detailed work of art that is, The Ultimate Camping Packing List.

There's nothing I dislike more when trying to compile a packing list than having to fill in the gaps on things myself. Like food for example; oftentimes other lists online leave the actual food part out completely, trusting people will want to pick out their own food.

Um, hello?? If you're like me and feel like you already have to look up all these different lists to figure out what to bring and make sure you don't forget something, you're also going to need someone to tell you what to eat! Don't worry, I've got you. I put real food items directly on this list so you don't have to think about what to eat while enjoying the great outdoors. Tweak it to fit dietary restrictions.

This list lays out key items you need. You know how many nights you'll be camping. Adjust the list according to the duration of your stay. For example, if you're camping for 3 nights you should bring 4 pairs of underwear. Please don't wear the same pair for that many days in a row.

Additionally, if you think I left something out or have something to add to this list, drop a comment below this post and get the conversation started! Happy Camping!
