Camping trip pointers

When planning a camping trip to the Oregon coast for 5 kids, 2 adults, and a 7 passenger mini van, here are some pointers for packing and preparing:
  • Don't mention taking an extra kid with you until you are sure there is enough seating in the caravan of vans driving to the campground.
  • Be sure the pancake breakfast served at the campground is for everyday.  We don't have to pack food for breakfasts!
  • Bring lots of diapers and wipes for littles.
  • Start packing several days in advance, but be sure to leave some clothes out so kids have something to wear!
  • Don't over pack!  Thankfully there are laundry services at the campground.  
  • Bring lots of warm clothes for cooler weather on the beach.
We'll see how well I did with packing after we get there!  I hope the rain stays away and the kids have fun.  E. and S. have never been camping before.
