Advice for a camp-out n00b?

So this weekend will be my first Darkon campout (4th event-- I know that's significant for some reason, but I can't remember why). I'll be camping with Elidor, and I'm bringing cookies, per my m.o., but is there any advice I should know in advance? Especially regarding things I should bring, that maybe wouldn't be immediately apparent? Thanks!

Toilet paper, just in case. We ran out at the last campout and I had to get my emergency stash.

If you're actually camping (most of Elidor does not do this anymore, old farts :P)
Tent, sleeping bag, flashlight, food (hot dogs etc that can be cooked quickly over a fire), plenty of water, camp chair, period cup/container, change of clothes, weapons, garb, good attitude hahha

Does the site have running water and/or bathrooms, or is it "au naturale"? (Thanks for the list, Wulfen, that was very helpful!)

tent and sleeping bag unecessary. we have the log house to sleep under, and it will be 90+ degrees =P. there are spot a pots. do not use them after friday night. trust me, its better to * in a bag leaning against Inox's truck...not that id ever do that...

there are also bathrooms "in town" about a 10 min drive away. good to go at least once per weekend. shower in the sink. stretch out. etc.

there is a food lion in town as well, for all your food needs. if you have ever been regular camping, its pretty much the same, just with nerds hitting each other and yelling colors all weekend. have fun! reunion is a cool site, just wish it was closer :(
