What To Pack

Must Haves

  • Aluminum Foil
  • Bedding

A sleeping bag on the floor of a tent can be a harrowing experience. Additional padding recommended.

  • Charcoal, Lighter Fluid
  • Clothes, Rain Gear

Pack at least two sets of clothing per day. The difference between daytime and nighttime temperatures can be stark! In case you’re still on the fence: yes, you should definitely bring your jacket even in August.

  • Dish Soap
  • Food

Many campgrounds lack food service on-site or any such establishment nearby.

  • Lighters
  • Lighting
  • Other Beverages

Few campgrounds sell these goods and some may be a distance from grocers, liquor or convenience stores.

  • Sleeping Enclosure
  • Sunscreen
  • Toiletries
  • Towels, Other Linens
  • Trash Bags
  • Utensils
  • Water

At least one gallon per person per day. Some campgrounds may not have a source to refill containers.

Ought To Haves

  • Air Pump
  • Extension Cord
  • Grill

Not all campgrounds feature suitable grills on-site.

  • Insect Repellant
  • Radio
  • Watersport Accessories

Don’t Pack

  • Aggressive dogs or those prone to barking
  • Glass

Glass containers are not permitted at most campgrounds, as possession of such on or near any stream is illegal. Be warned that these laws are strictly enforced and for good reason due to the hazards broken glass represents! Liquids packaged in glass may be repackaged in plastic containers for use on a stream.

  • Firewood

It’s no joke! Moving firewood spreads invasive species that devastate our forests. Purchase your firewood locally once you arrive. Better deals may be found by purchasing outside the campground.
