Havasupai Packing List

I’ve had a few people ask me what to pack on a trip to Havasupai, so I put together my suggested packing list. Hope this is helpful!

  • Overnight backpack: the 10 mile hike to and from the campsite isn’t easy, so don’t overpack and make sure your heavier items are closer to the bottom of your backpack.
  • Daypack: a backpack you can carry around during the day. If you have an overnight backpack with a removable top, even better!
  • Water bladder: there is a spring at the campsite where you can fill up.
  • Water bottle
  • Water filter: if you’re going on long day hikes and don’t feel like carrying all of your water for the day.
  • Sunscreen
  • Bug spray
  • Sun hat
  • Hiking shoes
  • Water shoes
  • Flip flops
  • Sunglasses
  • Hiking poles: the hike in/out is hilly and rocky, so poles can be helpful.
  • Bathing suit
  • Shorts
  • Long durable quick-dry pants: especially if you want to do a long hike with river crossings.
  • Short sleeved shirt
  • Long sleeved shirt: to shield from the sun
  • Socks (bring a few pairs)
  • Tent or hammock
  • Sleeping bag
  • Headlamp or flashlight
  • Food: snacks, and meals if you want. The village that sells food is two miles from the campground.
  • Cooking system
  • Camera
  • Solar charger: if you want to keep your electronics charged

Enjoy your trip! If you want to see some pictures from Havasupai check out my Instagram.
