This list does not include food because everyones preference is different. However, you should completely plan your meals including condiments before you start packing. Allow a few days for the meats to fully freeze. The frozen foods will last longer. They should stay frozen for a few days as long as you don't let the ice disappear and keep the meats out of the water. I put my frozen meats in an open plastic tub in the cooler to keep them from becoming water logged. If you have a large amount of people to feed and all the food won't fit into one cooler put the drinks in one cooler and the meats and veggies in another. This will help to keep the meats frozen longer by not having the cooler opened continuously.

Another way to keep the meats frozen longer is to put the items you want frozen in a seperate cooler and use a block of dry ice.

As I stated earlier this printable camping list can be edited and you may not need everything on the list. This list is meant for camping in the northeast region of the US where there is plenty of water and there are no posionous snakes to worry about. If you camp in a region with posious snakes or animals include a good snake bite kit and learn how to use it effectively. This could mean the difference between life and death.
