Simple Camping- My Camping List

As I prepare to go camping this weekend I can't help but write down every single thing I need to bring. Then it dawned on me that I should share it with you so I can refer back to it and just maybe you will find something helpful.  

We all know camping can be a lot of work.  I mean we are literally hauling all the necessities we need to survive to a small lot of land and set up camp.  So simple is possibly an over statement but I am truly trying to make camping as simple as possible for our family. I want to have fun and keep it basic.  No fuss camping is what I want to experience.

Here is our plan for a two night stay at a campground with electricity.  I also know that there is no rain in the forecast.  If it looked like a wet weekend I would consider canceling but it looks like a warm beautiful weekend ahead!  Yippee!


Day 1 (Travel Day and Set up Camp)

Lunch- Fast Food 
Dinner- Hot Dogs- Pasta Salad
Snacks- Raw veggies- Chips and Salsa- Nuts- Granola Bars

Day 2 (Full Day at Camp & Beach)

Breakfast-Pop-tarts & Bloody Mary's for Mom and Dad
Lunch- Peanut Butter & Jelly Sandwich ( Any Left over hot dogs)
Dinner- Restaurant near by 
Snacks- Apple Sauce- Crackers-Juice Boxes-Fruit Cups

Day 3 (Pack up Camp and Travel)
