    We take a set of plastic drawers to put food and eating utensils in.

    I'd suggest camping somewhere that has facilities and a camping shop nearby so when you get there if you've missed anything you can go and buy it.

    Something to sleep on (blow up mattresses are pretty good)
    Something to blow them up with
    Pillows
    Sleeping bags/doonas
    Thongs
    Chairs
    Things to wash dishes and wipe surfaces
    Tea Towels
    Cups
    Games for the kids

    Have a look at what other people have in their camp site to get some ideas. We are always snooping around to see what other people have. Our latest purchase was a camping washing line.

    Shade is very important though, either a tarp or something similar for shade otherwise it's not going to be very nice.

    So, do you wash clothes when you are camping? Or pack enough to get you through and wash it all when home??

    sometimes we pack more then ample to get us right through other times we take a big tub and hand wash and use ropes for clothes lines. If we are going to powered areas we take our little camping twin tub machine.

    We have a wagon and take a trailer as well. But we took motorbikes and all our motor bike gear camping with us.
    We also use 3 eskis (1 for food, another for drinks and the 3rd for ice).
    Port-a-cot
    Cooking utensils, cutlery, plates, cups, dishwashing liquid, tea towel, paper towels, sponge, roll of toilet paper, torches and lanterns, lighter, insect repellant & coils.
    2 bags of changes of clothes for us all.
    Seating
    fold out table
    sterio
    generater
    2x gery cans of fuel (for bikes and gen.)
    blow up mattresses
    pillows
    sleeping bags
    Quilts (for extra warmth at night)
    portable little gas cooker
    garbage bags for cans and rubbish.
    Box of water

    Hmmm that's all I can think of right now.

    We generally go camping for 4 or so days. Always a great time to get away from the city and be in the middle of no where and just focus on us as a family.

    Yep but its powered by electricity so it needs a point. Its ideal for a caravan Its only little its fits about 6 pieces of clothing in. one side spins and washes and the other side spins dry. cost us $120 from a local camping warehouse. It doesnt get used much though as we preffer to go camping with no power or facilities and go camping camping :P
