Pineland Camping Park Packing Essentials Checklist

Do you have what you need to start the camping season? We’re 23 days away from the opening of Pineland Camping Park for the 2023 season, and while we have our own checklists to get through before opening day, here’s a checklist of the most important things to remember.

  • Charcoal
    You can grab your firewood and propane on-site, but if you travel with a charcoal grill, don’t forget to bring your fuel.
  • Cookware
    Whether you’re cooking on a stovetop inside your camper or cooking over flames, make sure you have the cookware you need. PS: Pot holders are an essential cookware item for safe
  • Aluminum Foil
    We love foil—it’s a great multi-tool in the kitchen (or around the campfire). Line your cookware with it for easy clean-up. BONUS: when you’re done, foil is 100% recyclable—even with food stuck on it. Forget your cookware? Make a foil packet. Leftovers—fold them in foil!
  • Tablecloth
    Picnic table tablecloths are essential to camping. Grab an outdoor tablecloth (and don’t forget to grab a pack of tablecloth clips to weatherproof your covering, too).
  • Clean-up
    Every campsite at Pineland Camping Park has water, but don’t forget soap and a sponge to wash-up with. You’ll want garbage bags for getting things to the dumpsters at the end of the trip.
    • HINT: Save space with a combo dish & hand bar soap.
    • If you’ll be washing your dishes outside, please consider a biodegradable or eco-friendly soap.
  • Tool Kit
    Hope for the best, pack for the worst. So, while we hope nothing happens that requires tools, it’s always good to have some basic tools on hand just in case. Hammer, rubber mallet, screwdrivers, etc. You’ll also want to have some supplies on hand, too—like duct tape, bungie cords, paracord/clothesline, and extra stakes.
  • Bucket
    Whether it’s for washing up, washing dishes, or putting out your fire at the end of the night, a bucket is multipurpose. You can even use it to gather garbage at the end of the trip, and store you supplies between trips.
  • Sunscreen
    Even in the spring, the sun is out and shining. Please protect yourself, rain or shine! Skin damage and sunburn is possible even on an overcast day.

Here are some other essentials that don’t need any explanation…

  • Camp chairs
  • Flashlights
  • Extra Tarp
  • Leveling blocks
  • Portable Fire Extinguisher
  • Pet Supplies
  • First Aid Kit
  • Plates & Utensils
  • Non-stick spray
  • Toilet Paper & Paper Towels
  • Lighter or waterproof matches
