Camping Packing List

I recently spent a few days with my family at the Cabin in the Woods at Mirror Lake State Park near Baraboo/Wisconsin Dells, Wisconsin and I LOVED IT!!!!! What a wonderful way for someone with a severe disability like mine to be able to enjoy camping in the great outdoors.(Read all about it in several entries on my Blog.)

The cabin is fully accessible with:

  • A kitchen that has a lowered counter, stovetop, microwave and refrigerator;
  • A bedroom equipped with two hospital beds (one is automatic), and a Hoyer™ or Invacare™ lift;
  • A living room with a full-sized sofa sleeper or futon and two cots;
  • A bathroom with a wheel-in shower, fold down shower bench, and a shower commode chair;
  • An attached screened porch so even if you cannot go outside, you feel you are;
  • Heating, air-conditioning, and many electrical outlets for comfort;
  • And of course, an accessible picnic table, grill, fire ring, and deck overlooking the lake.

Camping in a cabin is not like a hotel though; you need to bring your own sheets, towels, dishes, food, along with your personal care items. To make sure I do not forget anything, I have created the following lists. If you get the pleasure of going to a cabin in the woods, mountains, or at the beach, I hope you find my lists helpful. Feel free to print these lists and customize to suit your needs.

Happy camping!
