Your glamping packing list made easy!

Planning a fun glamping getaway? This complete glamping packing list will make sure you don’t forget anything important.

I’m a huge fan of glamping because for me it provides a nice middle ground, especially when the weather starts to turn. While I love going away on tough expeditions and sleeping out in the wild, I also really enjoy my comforts. Sometimes I want to be close to the outdoors while being warm, in a comfortable bed and without having to endure the slightly damp smell that comes with regular camping.

There’s a reason my blog is called the Ordinary Adventurer!

What to pack for glamping?

I’ve put together this glamping packing list to make preparations as easy as possible.

It’s important to check with the glamping site that you have booked with to see if there is anything specific you need to bring as amenities can vary greatly between them. Some provide everything from a fully-fitted kitchen, bedding, and towels while others literally provide nothing but an empty space to sleep in.

I’ve marked items that may vary between glamping sites in bold so you should double-check before packing these.

Glamping packing list


  • Warm weather clothing
  • Cold weather clothing
  • Waterproofs (would recommend taking an umbrella if you don’t have an en-suite and need to walk to the shower/toilet block)
  • Wellies & walking trainers/boots
  • Sunglasses and hats
  • Extra blankets (nice to throw over your shoulders if you sit outside at night under the stars)
  • Nightwear

Sleeping & comfort

  • Sleeping bags or duvet
  • bed sheets
  • pillows
  • camping chairs
  • eye mask and earplugs if you are a light sleeper
  • Toiletries (I usually just take a LUSH shampoo bar as an eco all in one for staying clean. Don’t forget the toothbrush and toothpaste as well)
  • Small first aid kit
  • Headtorch

Food & cooking

Eating in your pod, yurt or hut is part of the fun so make sure you plan to eat a few meals on site. See if there’s a fire pit or BBQ on-site you can make use of!

  • Food for meals and snacks (make it memorable and bring lots of food that you like…and don’t forget the salt, pepper, and oil!)
  • Soft drinks and not-so-soft drinks
  • Camping stove
  • Plates, bowls, cups, and utensils (BBQ utensils if planning to use)
  • Teatowel, scrubber and washing up liquid
  • Cooler
  • Kitchen roll
  • Penknife
  • Food clips and containers (really useful to have to store food that you don’t eat)
  • Matches
  • Binbag for rubbish

Optional extras

  • Books & magazines
  • Outdoor games and a ball
  • Board games and a pack of cards (great for a wet evening in your glamping pod or tent)
  • Camera
  • Phone & chargers
