How is your campsite checklist?
Don’t let your camping trip get ruined by not having the right supplies.
Here is a simple camping checklist I recommend you use.
- Make sure you get a Tent that is large enough for your camping equipment, loved ones, and family dog.
- Sleeping Bags designed for camping in various climates, especially at West End – Lake Fort Peck campsite. We all know that the campsites in Montana the weather can change on short notice.
- Camping Pads to add some extra cushion under your sleeping bag so you don’t wake up with a stiff neck and back.
- Ready-to-eat snacks with tons of carbs
- Weather-appropriate clothing for Fort Peck MT climate; all-weather boots, lightweight rain jackets, sweatshirts, sandals, camping socks, etc
- Hygiene, toothbrush, soap, medical essentials; burn cream, bandages, ankle wraps
- Fishing Poles. If you are going to catch fish whether is a fishing pole for beginners or advanced fisherman, just make sure you use that is right for you.
- Fishing Reels. I highly recommend putting some oil on those rusty fishing reels. If need be, you should probably look into buying a new reel.
- Fishing Lures for catching fish in shallow and semi-deep waters. Make sure you do your research before you go. Do you want to know a little fishing secret? Use red lures and red hooks if you want to catch a bunch of fish. SShhh…don’t tell your buddy….
- Fishing Line; Keep in mind, nearly all fishing line gets frail and weak as it ages. Change your fishing line before you lose your trophy catch!
- Mosquito Repellent for those pesky bugs that never seem to go away.
- I highly recommend you bring a Fishing Lantern with extra batteries if you plan to fish at night. Certain fish are attracted to lights.
- Water Bottles for hiking and recreation so you can stay hydrated.
