Essential Camping Packing List

When I was a young kid growing up my family took us camping just about every single weekend & it is a memory I still truly cherish to this day and want to pass along to my kids. Although with my wedding decorating  business I do not have the time allowance to go every weekend like I would like to, we get to go every so often and thoroughly enjoy ourselves. 

We do camp and not tent, but our camper is not a "fancy"camper by any means, but it does keep us off the wet ground at night, we have someplace that will stay dry if it does rain, it has a heater & air conditioner if needed & the kids absolutely have a blast in there, so it is well worth it & does the job needed for us. But one the more time consuming jobs I feel is getting the camper packed for the first time out in it. You try to run through your lists on paper & in your head of what will all be needed & yet never fails you still always forget something. And so to make things easier for anyone reading this & myself for the future I have created a list of the essentials needed for my family when we go camping. I hope it comes in handy for you.
