Campers: Let’s get organized!

Home » Blog » Campers: Let’s get organized!

You can never be too organized, so we’re always on the lookout for great ideas to help you streamline your camping vacations. Here are four we’ve found:

The RV Checklist

How about an RV Kitchen Checklist, a Meal Plan Organizer or an RV Departure Checklist? These great tools and more can be found at The Camping Journal. You can print out these free pages to help make your planning easier and ensure you don’t forget anything. This site also sells a book called the Camping Journal, which is a RV log book for you to fill in. It can hold the info on 100 campsites, from weather to water pressure, mileage records to pet-friendliness. This large print spiral book is a great keepsake, a great gift or a great way to remember details about your favorite (or not-so-favorite) campsites.

Handy Totes

Here’s an excellent idea from Mom Loves Camping. She packs two large bins with camping supplies – one kitchen items and one other camping items – that are stored and essentially ready-to-go at all times, thereby reducing the packing and planning time of camping vacations.

The one pictured above is by Sterilite, but any bin will do. With notes on top to remind her what needs to be added or replaced, these bins make it a breeze to pack for a trip and reduce the stress of wondering what you brought and where it is. She also gives other tips for routine storage of camping items too big for bins, such as sleeping bags, tents, etc.

Shoe Organizers

camping tipsYou know those plastic shoe organizers that hang over the door or on a hook? They are great for organizing camp kitchen supplies, and the clear plastic keeps everything visible and at the ready. Just hang it from a tree branch or pole near your campfire to avoid constantly rummaging for food items. You can also use these to plant herbs and spices in, especially if you’re a routine RV-er, hanging it outside in the sun whenever you’re stationary. The uses of these organizers is limited only by the size of the items and your imagination. The one pictured is from



Truck Bed Tents

But hey, what’s more important than campers and the best possible use of space? So if you have a truck, you might consider adding one of these to your ‘Buy Soon’ checklist. In fact, they even make them for SUV drivers. There are many (the one shown is Napier Sportz 57 Series), but here’s some at Bass Pro Shops that show both types here.


We hope these tips help streamline your planning, packing and organizing, so more of your time is saved for camping! And we hope you choose to camp with us soon at Abita Springs RV Park.
