Growing up I went camping ALL the time.... or at least if feels like we went all the time, it was probably only 2 -4 times a year.... either way, that is more than I do now.
I enjoy camping.
I enjoy getting away from the city,
putting away electronics and getting close with nature.
Being that I hadn't been camping in years, getting the camping supplies and making sure the trip went smoothly was important. We had 5 campers, and 2 dogs. Alot of planning goes into camping. We made a huge list, and it ended up working out, because there wasn't anything we didn't use! AND there wasn't anything we forgot.
If you are looking for the Ultimate camping list, I think this post should get you an awesome jump start.
Just make sure you have the space to pack it all.
We didn't have much room inside our Toyata 4-Runner since we had two dogs, three girls and two adults the inside was packed. Thank goodness we had a Gobi Rack!! That Rack handled it beyond well!!!
You can see just how loaded up the rack was!

This list does not include food! I had no idea how much work went into food!! I am here to tell you, it took a TON! But meal prep is so important for an easy relaxing trip. I will post what we did for meals soon enough, and let you know what I would change next time!
