Tent Camping Checklist
If you’re going tent camping, you’re going to be away from your home and other civilization (sometimes many hours away) so it’s important that you pack everything you need. I would highly recommend you build your own tent camping checklist that’s personalized to you and your family so you don’t forget anything.
It’s way too hard to remember everything you need without it written down, not to mention it’s stressful because you always have that nagging feeling that you’re forgetting something (I’m sure you know what I mean). Creating a camping essentials checklist for tent camping will give you peace of mind and help you relax, knowing that you have everything you need for a weekend of fun.

How To Create Your Own Personalized Tent Camping Checklist
First, start with a basic camping essentials checklist like the one above, it will give you a lot of ideas for your own tent camping checklist. Start up a word document (or OpenOffice Writer if you don’t have Microsoft Office). Create a few columns then do a numbered or bulleted list and start listing all the items you need for tent camping.
Once you have your basic tent camping checklist, then it’s time to put it to the test! Print it out and keep it with you while you’re packing for your next tent camping adventure. As you put the items in the truck, cross them off. If you see or remember an item that you should have on your tent camping checklist but don’t, write it on the list, pack it, then cross it off.
Bring your tent camping checklist with you when you go and keep it handy. During the trip, if there’s anything you wish you had or forgot, write it on the checklist. Then when you get home, open up your tent camping checklist document and type in the items you wrote on the paper.
If you keep doing this you’ll find you soon have an awesome tent camping checklist that’s personalized and helps you remember all the stuff you need, and nothing that you don’t need.
