What To Pack

Prepare thyself! Need some pointers on how to impROOve your camping experience? Just because we’re camping doesn’t mean we are roughing it.

  • Camping gear
    • Tents & Shelters
    • Sleeping Bags & Beds
    • Tarp
  • Cooler and/or water jugs (ice available for purchase throughout the campgrounds)
  • Lantern / flashlight / headlamp (AND extra batteries!)
  • Stainless steel water bottle (or two!)
  • Camping chairs, tables, and anything else that might help create a comfy home-away- from home
  • Rain gear (failure to bring it increases the chance of rain)
  • Your favorite hoodie (yes, it CAN get cold in TN)
  • Extra shoes/sneakers (treat yo feet!)
  • Mud boots (in case it rains)
  • Bug spray (we recommend without DEET – be green!)
  • Sunscreen (lots of it)
  • A hat for shade
  • A bandana (in Tennessee, in September, you’re going to sweat)
  • Sunglasses
  • Biodegradable plastic bags for trash (we do provide some bags for trash and recycling, but extras are nice)
  • Toilet paper (you never know)
  • Flag or balloon to identify your campsite
  • Extra set of keys to keep with you at all times (avoid keeping keys in your car!)

  • Small stove or grill if you would like to cook some of your own food (please obey our Gasoline/Charcoal/Propane Policy)
  • Small luggage lock for your tent (please don’t bring any valuables – if you must, keep them locked out of view in your vehicle) or rent one of our lockers
  • Vehicle key code (this makes it easy for the locksmith to duplicate your car key if you lose it)
  • Phosphate-free and sulfate-free soaps, detergents and shampoos
  • Smokers – bring an ashtray! Every butt you throw on the ground, someone has to pick up!
  • Extra clown nose
  • Blanket (for sitting)
  • Earplugs (for sleeping)
  • Portable speakers or radio
