Thomas McEntee's super-detailed list: https://abundantgenealogy.com/genealogists-packing-list-plan-genealogy-research-trip-now/ I especially like this one: 

"Hours of operation: Call each site you intend to visit including archives, court houses and libraries. DO NOT RELY ON WEBSITES. Many facilities have experienced furlough days or budget cutbacks so you need to call ahead." Ask about the exact date you want to visit, in case they shut down for cleaning, local holidays, etc. Call the most important ones before you book anything else, in case you have to change plans.
