What to Stock and Pack!

Dec 5, 2021 | 0 comments

You have your new camper, or new to you camper, and are excited to camp! What should you bring? What essentials do you need? You really don’t want to overpack and add too much weight to your camper, but there are a few basics that you’ll need.  Having the right supplies increases the chances of a problem-free adventure. You will find my list of essentials below.

I keep my list on my phone under notes, if I ever need to check it, it’s right there.  As time goes on, you’ll add to, or take away from your list.  If you forget something, don’t fret!  Girl Campers always take care of each other, if something was forgotten, chances are, someone else will have it. Even though we have the weather channel now, sometimes you find yourself in colder weather than you planned.

I do have that emergency cold weather bag and have pulled it out a few times for myself or fellow girl campers who didn’t have warm clothes and were freezing. Have a combo or all of these items in a plastic bag under your bench seat storage just in case – (some of these items were old and now have new life for a rainy day!)

I have separated the lists into my camping supplies and an emergency cold weather bag! Remember everyone has their own special needs.  Feel free to personalize the list for yourself!! 


Long Johns, Down Vest, Warm wool socks, Mittens, Wool Hat, Scarf, Sweater, Heavy sweat pants to layer, Space blanket (about $3.00 at Wal-Mart), and a hooded raincoat
