It is important to have an adventurous camping trip. While you can (and should) keep things discreet with the location of your encampment, you should make sure it is safe, but the gear you carry should be as much fun as possible. Despite the fact that you are in the wild, you still have to be careful. Let your wild side shine! The outdoorsman you used to be is now you.
Camping trips are just made better with the addition of some auxiliary lights, better cooking tools, cozier chairs, and even a powerful outdoor speaker.
Luckily, we have some options to prepare you, no matter whether you are setting up your tent a few yards away from the parking lot, and you will be able to take your car with you—in that case, you should go big since you have a car—or if you are doing a hike of five miles to the campsite with your rucksack.
In order to help you become one with nature while still enjoying your comforts while being one with nature, we’ve compiled some of the best camping gadgets and cool camping gear listed below.
The Best Summer Camping Gadgets
The reversible napsack
There is no need for another sleeping bag or jacket because this thing does everything. As a sleeping bag, the Napsack is very comfortable, thanks to its armholes and cinching bottom, which prevents it from feeling stuffy and sweaty, like many sleeping bags tend to do.
Our recommendation is to have a few of these around because they are so versatile, particularly if you are camping during the spring or fall when the temperature drops sharply in the evenings. Poler makes layering with a sleeping bag look good, which is something that no one should be able to do, but he does it perfectly.
Beacon rechargeable camping lantern
It is true that a fire light is nice, but you will also need something that is machine-made. In spite of a vast selection of lanterns offered by Barebones, the Beacon lamp of the Beacon series and the Forest lantern of the Forest series stand out among the rest as two of the most popular lanterns in the company: the Beacon lamp and Forest lantern of the Forest series.
As the Beacon comes with a carabiner clip, making it more portable, it brings more coverage to the area compared to the Forest. The batteries in both models have incredible (and rechargeable) life-span and dimmer settings, and both are of the rugged and robust quality you need when camping.
Rechargeable LED lantern
It may act as a lantern, but it is more of a mood-setting device than it is a lantern intended to show the way, though Balmuda’s lantern definitely achieves the latter, too, in an elegant manner. There’s no doubt that it won’t be enough light for you to hang it from the strap of your tent, but should you happen to find yourself out at night or just looking for some extra vibes, it probably won’t disappoint.
Portable suitcase grill
In terms of cooking options, this one is the most straightforward. This is a good choice if you enjoy charcoal’s smokey taste and want a more structured workstation than the one you would get from roasting hot dogs on sticks over a campfire.
Let’s not forget that the grill folds flat and can be packed into a suitcase. That’s a portable BBQ you can carry for miles, and if that isn’t a near-perfect camping device, we don’t know what is.
Adventure flask kit
All you need is a compass, a flashlight, a flask, and some shot glasses to complete the package. There is no doubt that packing those shot glasses and flask by themselves would be a tough sell, but in conjunction with the compass and flashlight, VSSL’s Adventure Kit becomes a vital, multi-purpose camping accessory.
It should also be noted that in case you are looking for a similar kit that is even campier, VSSL has a Camp Supplies Kit that includes even more rigs, like first aid kits, water purification systems, trail marking systems, and so on. It is the complete package.
Tents like this are like the Ritz Carlton. Basically, this tent is a mini-house, but snow peak tents are all tents in a way that makes them stand out from the rest. There are living, dining, and sleeping areas in this apartment.
If you want to hold a game night inside your dining room, you should bring a whole dining room set. Make sure you pack a nine-piece orchestra and give them the opportunity to perform. There is no doubt in my mind that you could.
Siesta folding reclining camping chair
In general, camping chairs are inherently uncomfortable, with the exception of this one. Although it is not a La-Z-Boy, it is a pretty good substitute for the camping equivalent of the La-Z-Boy.
With a 300-pound weight capacity, the Siesta is padded just where it needs to be and is even reclinable. The weight limit is 200 pounds, and it’s as light as a feather.
You had better believe it: It even has a cup holder on the back. It is impossible to think of anything more enjoyable than spending time in the great outdoors.
Wood-burning campstove 2
A BioLite stove is also available for those who want to cook on their campsite, which is another option that they can choose from. What an amazing thing. There are no words to describe it.
Furthermore, it gives you a gasless fire that is both smokeless and powered by sticks and twigs. In addition, there is a USB charger included in the package that powers up your phone using some kind of dark energy to boost battery life. That’s pretty cool.
Ultra-light acoustic travel guitar
Among the group, there is always a bard. Few things are more irritating than the bard who takes his acoustic guitar to the campsite instead of carrying the rest of his gear.
It is fun to boogie down to live music on a camping trip, but it is a calculated risk that will need to be taken into account when you are taking up the space.
Through the help of this two-pound guitar, people will be able to carry more items in the future, such as food and alcohol. We’ll see how they do. Fingers crossed.
