I was not sure where to post this. I have not been camping in a long time and dh wants to go. Please help me plan. I'm not really a camper but am looking for camping tips so I don't hate this trip.

We went camping Father's Day weekend and had a blast! You didn't say whether you were using a tent or camper...we slept in a tent. Here is a list of what we took.
~tent and air mattress/air pump
~pillows and blankets/sheet
~sunscreen, aloe vera gel
~water shoes(saved our feet!), swim suits and beach towels
~clothes line and clothes pins..to hang between 2 trees to dry wet suits and towels
~iron skillet, spatula, large spoon, paper plates, gallon baggies, aluminum foil, forks, paper towels, cups
~coolers...1 for drinks and one for food(hot dogs, cheese, condiments, lunch meat, bacon, eggs)
~toiletries..deodorant, baby wipes, toilet paper, shampoo, soap, toothbrush and paste
~dish soap and disinfectant wipes
~fan and drop cord (we had electric available)
~mosquito spray and citronella candles
~snack foods (crackers, snack cakes, chips, beef jerky) and don't forget the marshmellows, graham crachers and chocolate for smores!
~hot dog roasting wires
~plastic table cloth with hooks to hold it in place
~flash light, lantern, extra batteries, radio
~I put all the food in a big plastic tub..keeps the critters out lol
Hope this helps!

Umbrellas rain and beach
Mini food processor

Lots of tips in camping and village sports if you look around here.

Don't forget flip-flops! The shower floors on campsites can get pretty gross! I always bring things to entertain me. I'll bring a book, frisbee, ball, etc.
