    If you make this trip every year I'm surprised you haven't already made a list.

    Do it this year for sure. Start by listing everything you think you'll need. When you pack it, check off on the list that you've done so.

    Then, when you're on site, keep track. Make new lists. One should include everything you took that you used often. One should be those things you occasionally used (or would have used if the weather were different). The third should be those things you never used. Fourth should be things you didn't take but needed.

    Next year, discard everything on list 3. Then combine lists 1 and 4.

    List 2? Eyeball the items carefully. Did you really need that X, which you only used once? Decide what on that list you really need to take, and add it to list 1.

    Here are more tips on camping check lists:

    Kellie provided an excellent list. I'd like to add two things. Consider a cot if there is a chance of critters roaming the grounds. If it gets cold, putting a plastic bag (such as a vinyl waterproof bag you keep your sleeping back in) over the foot end of your sleeping bag makes a big difference.
