One thing I can tell you from experience: You’ll realize you forgot that essential piece of gear — flashlight batteries, can opener, propane for the stove — at the worst possible time.
Prevent camping frustrations with a comprehensive camping packing list.
And if you don’t have one, Illinois Scouter Steve Sarver has just the thing to get you started.
Steve’s camping packing list is a Word document, meaning it’s simple for you to modify as you wish.
That’s helpful, because your list for a backpacking trip this fall won’t look the same as the one for your car-camping outing this winter.
He’s included pretty much everything you might need — year-round — on this master list. So you’ll want to delete things like “a swimsuit” for your ice-fishing trip. Brr!

Take a look at Steve’s list, and let me (and him) know if anything’s missing.
