If you are anything like me, when you pack you do it categorically, crossing things off the list as you go. This is how I have compiled the single-greatest list for tent-camping. If you are backpacking, I suggest condensing this list even further. This list is meant for people like me: semi-experienced-tent-campers-who-want-to-rough-it-but-not-really.

We manage to fit all of these items into one large tote (Walmart, $6.)

1 Skillet
1 Small sauce pan
1 Spatula
1 Pair of Tongs
1 can of Pam Cooking Spray
2 Plates (plastic)
