Simple Camping CheckList for 1 Person

This simple camping checklist is designed for one person going to a camp site with good facilities. We assume there will be a toilet, shower block and washing up facilities but you won’t have electrical hookup.

It also assumes that you have plenty of space in a car to get there and that you will not have to carry your kit far from your car.

Many camp sites allow you to park your car right next to your tent. If not you are usually able to drive to your pitch and unload your gear.

If you think you may have a long trek from your car to your pitch you could also add a wheeled trolley to your simple camping checklist.
