I also would suggest Tide Pods or the like, They are a little lighter (every bit counts) and you don't have to worry about spills!

I use one of these.....


It's sturdy, holds a LOT, you can separate wet/dry stuff, and you can sit it on the floor if need be and it won't let water inside. Affordable too, I got it at one of the big box stores, I believe.

Thanks for bumping this thread. Reminded me I need to get a couple flashlights for our stay in the cabins and make sure I pack the bug repellent. Just wondering how bad the bugs are in April. Should I maybe think about packing some bug repelling candles to use on the deck?

"What do you carry your stuff to the bath houses in? "

I use an empty kitty litter container...the square kind with a lid and handle. I keep everything I might need in there" Shower shoes, shower cap, razors & shaving cream, tooth brush & paste, floss, hair brush and clips, shampoo, conditioner, shower gel, net scrubbie, powder, deodorant, and some first aid stuff such as bandaids, antibacterial ointment, etc. for boo boos. This is kept on the camping shelves at home and just tossed in with the tent, etc. when time to go camping. I can even sit on it if I have to wait in line for a shower or to shave my legs. In the tent it goes under my cot.

There are no open flames allowed. I believe there are other types of bug deterrents. I've never been bother by bugs there. But never say never.

Would those candles in the tins (citronella) be considered an open flame?

So glad for this thread. I keep refining my list. Thanks everybody. I have two air conditioners for our two tents. Friends were laughing about that. I told them they obviously have never been to Disney in the Summer.

What do you carry your stuff to the bath houses in?

I bought canvas (plastic inside liner) shower bags from Bed, Bath and Beyond a few years ago. I like the soft sided ones for storing vs. hard plastic. The top is open so I can grab my soap, shampoo etc. while showering...no zipper which helps to air out the bag after each shower. If it gets "yucky" after time I just throw it in the wash with the bath towels and it's like new.

I also bought these mesh bags again a few yrs. back from Target $1 spot or you can get a grocery recycle bag for $.99 and I place my clothes and towel in this bag to go to the showers. It's so much easy to take all you need to the showers vs. a duffle bag of clothes that do not fit very well in a small space in the comfort station.

We've been doing this for yrs.

Thanks for all the camping supplies suggestions. We are thinking of camping for the first time (aside from our backyard) at the Fort next year. I've heard that you need sand stakes for the tent. What are those? I've gone to the various sporting good stores and just get a blank look when I ask them.

Thanks. Are they the bigger plastic yellow stakes? All I find at the stores in my area are either the plastic yellow or a longer aluminum that's similar to the plastic yellow.
