Remember to pack your tunes. Sure, nature is a great soundtrack, but music adds to the fun.

Bring playing cards and/or board games. You’ll need something to do if the weather doesn’t cooperate.

Bring outdoor games. Horseshoes, washers, corn hole — all are great options for outdoor entertainment.

Always bring ample amounts of toilet paper. This should be self-explanatory.

Don’t forget the baby wipes. These handy items are good for more than cleaning little bundles of joy.

Do forget the sleeping bags. You’ll be staying in a fully sealed cabin or yurt so why not bring an air mattress or cot? Remember to bring pillows, too.

Go with fresh food when you can. You can still enjoy fresh fruits, veggies and meats even though you’re not at home. Ditch the canned beans.

Double-check your cookware. Nothing is worse than planning a meal and realizing your left your cast-iron skilling or boiling pot at home.

Don’t let pests pester you. Insect repellent, whether in candles, tiki torches or sprays, is an absolute necessity for enjoying the outdoors.

Pack a first aid kit. Bandages, ointments, aspirin and other handy medical supplies are must-haves for any camping trip.

Always bring at least three lighters. Fire is a must-have for roasting s’mores, hotdogs and more.

Be prepared with firewood and fire starters. Always grab a couple more handfuls of firewood than you think you’ll need. Remember your ax or saw, and don’t forget the importance of kindling.

Make sure you have enough fuel before you head out. This includes propane, butane, kerosene and other fuels used for heating and cooking.

Pack your rain gear just in case. Seriously, you’ll thank us later.

Sunscreen is your friend. Don’t let a sunburn ruin your camping trip. Bring sunscreen that’s 15 SPF or more.
