Here is a simple camping checklist I recommend you use in order to have a fascinating time.

  1. Tent; make sure you get a big enough for your gear and loved ones. Protecting your camping gear from the elements will make your outdoor experience much more enjoyable.
  2. Sleeping Bags designed for camping in various climates, especially at Ptarmigan Creek Trailhead campsite. We all know that North Westcoast campgrounds weather can change on short notice.
  3. Sleeping Pads to add some extra cushion under your sleeping bag
  4. Ready-to-eat snacks with tons of carbs
  5. Weather-appropriate Clothing for Seward AK climate; all-weather boots, lightweight rain jackets, sweatshirts, sandals, camping socks, etc
  6. Hygiene, Tooth Brush, Soap & Medical Essentials; burn cream, bandages, ankle wraps
  7. Fishing Poles, if you are going to catch fish whether is a named brand like  Mustad  tackle or a generic brand, just make sure you use that is right for you.
  8. Fishing Reels; I highly recommend that you check your old reels on your fishing pole if you have one because some reels get rusty.
  9. Fishing Lures for catching fish in shallow and semi-deep waters. Make sure you do your research before you go.
  10. Fishing Line; Keep in mind, nearly all fishing line gets frail and weak as it ages. You should change out your fishing line before you try to catch a fish.
  11. Mosquito Repellent for those pesky bugs that never seem to go away.
  12. I highly recommend you bring Fishing Lantern with extra batteries if you plan to fish at night. Certain fish are attracted to lights.
  13. Water Bottles for hiking and recreation so you can stay hydrated.
