Updated: Aug 31, 2022

It's not easy knowing what to take. We're going to break down everything you need to camp and stay connected, both at an Offsite property or on your own. Print this baby out and cross them off! Whenever you book with us, we'll also send you a list of what you need as well for your stay. Remember - whatever you bring in, you must take out! Leave No Trace!


Camping at an Offsite Property

At Offsite, pretty much everything you need is already there for you!


Shelter:

  • Included, this is our specialty - we've got you covered, literally!

Clothing + Footwear:

Make sure to pack appropriately for the weather and your activities. Be sure to check both the highs and lows for your upcoming trip, and avoid cottons or fabrics that may keep you damp if you plan on being outside often. If you want, you can just stay in the cabin the whole time in the robe we provide, but we hope you'll get out and enjoy a bit!

  • Moisture wicking clothing + underwear

  • Socks (wool or synthetics)

  • Hiking boots or trail shoes
