Your campsite won’t be complete without these essential furniture pieces.
1. Caravan Sports Infinity Zero Gravity Chair.
If you are setting up camp near your car or aren’t hauling your gear far at all, then spoil yourself with an extremely comfortable chair. The Caravan Sports Infinity Zero Gravity Chair will have you relaxed under the sun in seconds or even sleeping comfortably under the stars. The chair has an adjustable headrest or lumber support, but can also lock in any reclining position. The chair can hold up to 300 pounds.
2. Big Agnes Helinox Chair One.
If you choose to bring a chair on a backpacking trek, opt for the Big Agnes Helinox Chair One. The chair is extremely light weight, just 1.9 pounds, and packs up to about the size of a one-liter soda bottle. The chair has a sturdy aluminum frame and a comfortable, low-slung seat to rest in after a hard hike. The carrying capacity is 320 pounds.
3. Coleman Pack-Away Deluxe Kitchen.
Setting up camp for a big weekend will be a lot easier with a basecamp kitchen. With the Coleman Pack-Away Deluxe Kitchen, all of your food and cooking accessories will be organized and within easy reach. The kitchen comes with a paper towel holder, a condiments rack, a removable sink basin, hooks for cooking utensils, a pantry shelf for snacks, a lantern hook for at night and a large prep surface. Plus, the side table is ideally used with whatever two-burner camping stove you have.
4. GCI Outdoor Slim-Fold Cook Station.
If there are only a few people heading to camp, but a table would help ease the dinner mess and store food properly, opt for the GCI Outdoor Slim Fold Cook Station. It is smaller than the Coleman Deluxe Kitchen, but still has all the storage and surface area you need for a night or two of cooking. It has four fold-out, small side tables for extra surface area, plus a large aluminum countertop for a two-burner camp stove, as well as a shelf below for extra storage.
5. Camp Chef Everest Burner Camping Stove.
The Camp Chef Everest Burner Camping Stove is the best way to get a real meal while car camping. This stove comes with two, high-pressure burners and adjustable dials for the perfect temperature control, stainless steel drip trays, a matchless ignition and back and side wind shields for optimal cooking in even the harshest conditions.
6. ENO Doublenest Hammock.
If you’ve never relaxed in the woods in a hammock, you are missing out. Better yet, use the Eno Doublenext Hammock in lieu of a tent. The Doublenest is a two-person hammock that supports up to 400 pounds. Whether you use it with another person or by yourself, you’ll always feel secure swinging above the ground. The hammock comes with thick, aluminum carabiners on each end, but does not include the suspension straps (sold separately) and is made from a strong and breathable nylon.
7. Coleman Pack-Away Cot.
If you’ve never really been able to sleep that well on the ground, use the Coleman Pack-Away Cot instead. The steel-framed cot can support up to 300 pounds and is designed as extra wide and extra long with an 80 x 32-inch sleeping area. It has a removable side table with a cup holder and is 17 inches off the ground.
8. Kelty Low Loveseat.
Who doesn’t need a loveseat on your next adventure? The Kelty Low Loveseat is a bit unconventional, but a fun way to spruce up your campsite. It has a quilted, comfortable and durable polyester seat with a strong steel frame that can hold up to 400 pounds. The armrests are adjustable and have an insulated beverage holder. The entire chair has three different recliner positions for maximum relaxation.
