The budget is important because it can determine how your party will take shape. Figuring out your budget before any planning will save you time, and of course, it will save you money. It can narrow down the choices for the menu, the location, the drinks you'll serve, the decorations, the location, and the number of people you invite. The guest list is the next item you should put down on your party planning checklist. It, like the budget, is important to determine early on in your party planning process. If you were smart, you already have a budget calculated. That budget should already give you an idea of how many people you can invite.
Doing this can bring with it peace of mind that you will not forget a single thing you would like to bring including the "activities" you would like to do. While you are doing this for yourself, you don't need to forget that others are going out on this camping trip with you. Getting together with them can stave off any chances of forgetting a single thing. Between all of you, there should not be a single thing forgotten. Since camping checklist are pretty easy to make, there is no reason not to make one other than you just do not want to take the time.
