Camping help!?

Okay, so this is my first time going camping with my family. I've gone with friends who had RV's, but this time we are just staying in a cabim. The cabin has no kitchen stuff (fridge, microwave, sink, etc) or bathroom, but the campsite does. It is in Michigan. It would be in August or October. What is a list of things to bring along? The longer list, the better. All help is appreciated.
