Planning a canoe trip? It’s important to bring along all the right gear and accessories to have a safe and memorable time. Enter your details to receive a printable packing checklist that will help you make the most of your trip.

If anyone knows how to pack, it’s seasoned pro Kevin Callan AKA The Happy Camper. He’s written a dozen or so guidebooks on backcountry camping and paddling and knows how to do it in style. Our downloadable packing checklist is based on what Kevin suggests bringing along for a multi-day summer canoe camping trip. Be sure to base your food and water supplies on how many days you plan to be gone. Keep in mind that if your trip includes portaging, you’ll need to carry every item you pack, so think carefully about those luxury items.

Happy paddling!
