Well we went this weekend and it went pretty well. Forgot the can opener but that was not really a problem. The only thing I'd add to my list is talc for getting the sand off DC's hands at the beach.

Thank you yellow.

I've got one like that. Don't use it much unless we're somewhere that doesn't allow fires but yes I use it straight on the grass. We've got this table and it fits perfectly though if you wanted a table for it.

Good thread as we're about to embark on a trip in a week or two!

Seeing this thread has reminded me though.....as a fairly inexperienced camper this will be the first time I've camped with a stove. Do I have to use it on a table or can it be used on the grass?
(Haven't got a table but wondering if I have to buy one not that there will be any room in the car to put it judging by my ever growing list )

It's one like the pic

My Don't forget next time list:

My pillow from home.
Small water bottle with tap. Must buy the one in Argos.
Windbreak for stove. Still not found a good one.
_Camping chair._

Went camping this week and made a mental note to take a dustpan and brush next time, to sweep crumbs etc from inside the tent.

Pilchardsontoast high fives to the obsessive camping list! Makes me feel a little less of a camping control freak with my excel spread sheet with 7 separate pages

Op I'd be happy to email it to you if you pm me your email address!

Ok I get the wine bit. Have taken this on board to the extent that for one weekend between 4 adults/2 kids we are taking two large cool boxes. One for food, one for wine which fits about four wine boxes......so that's two wine boxes each! grin

Can Opener!

PilchardsonToast Thu 12-Jun-14 11:47:18

it didn't work, sorry!

PilchardsonToast Thu 12-Jun-14 11:44:18

I'm not sure if this will work but this is my master checklist - I know it probably seems a bit excessive especially as I add to it each year but it really helps me!

jollyjester Thu 12-Jun-14 09:24:47

I got a great one off pinterest last year. Then I can add extras at the bottom.

JiltedJohnsJulie Wed 11-Jun-14 15:22:08

Was just about to post the same OP. We've only camped once before and I'm just about to start packing for our next trip smile

I'd add a couple of extra blankets for the floor of the tent to keep you a bit warmer when crawling around. We also take a small brush fir brushing out the dust and dirt from the tent groundsheet. If you do not have a cooker stand, I'd recommend one, or get a cooker with detachable legs - cooking at groud level is back-breaking! A disposable BBQ can be useful, or a small portable one. And don't forget pots, fry pan and a kettle. Have fun

dannyboyle Sat 31-May-14 17:33:30

Thanks. Had wondered about bin bags, zip lock style bags and all that stuff!

OddFodd Sat 31-May-14 17:13:04

No Marmite?! shock

Hmm ... I'm not sure I should continue advising you in that case. wink

I'd also add to that list:
Waterproofs
Wellies
Ziplock bags
Binbags
Loo paper
Potty
Hats
Hot water bottles (I always put them in the sleeping bags before people get in unless it's really really warm)

I also put emergency/space blankets underneath our airbed to deflect the cold air back down/warm up up. And you also need a pump (and puncture repair kit) if you take airbeds

dannyboyle Sat 31-May-14 16:41:19

Ah foil! There's one to add. Will pass on the marmite grin

Should probably also have added we have a 3 and a 2 year old.

OddFodd Sat 31-May-14 16:34:53

Here's my list (excluding our clothes/food):
Tent
Blow up mattress
Sleeping bag
Pillows
Blanket
Torches x3
Mallet
Cooker
Extra gas
Picnic set
Chairs
Table
Gazebo
Cooking equipment
Water carrier
Collapsible washing up bowl
Wet wipes
Kitchen roll
Salt
Pepper
Hot sauce
Olive oil
Marmite
Sharp knife
Teatowel
Washing up liquid
Dish cloth
Spatula
Foil
Tongs
Matches

Camping for the first time next weekend and just writing my checklist for packing the car now. I normally forget something on holiday and am desperately trying to avoid a bad "where is something" scenario! Would anyone be willing to share their packing list that was been determined through experience please. [am also interested to note any extras people add]. Think we have bought everything needed bar a stove which is next weeks job!).
