    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)
    ~trash bags
    ~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
    ~lawn chairs
    ~matches, hammer
    ~I put all the food in a big plastic tub..keeps the critters out lol

    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.
