Prepare for your next outdoor adventure with our list of top camping essentials. Everything you need for a safe, comfortable, and memorable camping trip.
Up here in the Midwest, a weekend of camping is a special treat that families and friends look forward to after a long winter. Enjoying the best that nature has to offer is a treasured pastime. Teaching the kids how to pitch a tent and build a fire can create a growing curiosity and memories that last a lifetime. Whether this is your first trip, or you’re an experienced camper, we want to help you find what you’ll need on your next camping adventure.
The first thing that comes to mind when camping is pitching a tent. There are several camping tents of all sizes to choose from. If you are looking for a smaller tent that can fit couples or families of four and be set up in just a few minutes, you might want to explore great value brands like Field & Forest and Eureka! If you’re looking for larger, more luxurious tents, take a look at the Coleman 8-person Red Canyon tent or the Wenzel Bristlecone 8-person dome tent. These shelters can fit more campers with room to spare for desired comfort and privacy. Don’t forget to pick up an extra tarp for rain protection and to keep your firewood nice and dry. You can find the right tent for your next trip among our variety of popular brands.
It’s always a smart idea to bring along extra food and drinks with you when you go camping. Coolers from the top brands can help keep your perishables fresh and your drinks cold so you can enjoy the beauty of the outdoors with the convenience of home. If you’re looking for durable, hard-sided coolers that can last for years, there are several Yeti items you can check out. If you’re looking for a simple, easy-to-carry cooler that comes at a great price, you should learn more about the coolers from brands like Igloo and Coleman.

If sitting on the ground or on top of your cooler doesn’t sound very comfortable, remember to pack some camping chairs along for your trip. Traditional and quad folding chairs are easy to carry, store, and they even have cup holders so you can relax and enjoy an ice cold drink after a long hike. If you’re looking for maximum comfort, anti-gravity lounge chairs let you fully recline so you can sit back, relax, and enjoy the summer weather. Hammocks are also a comfortable option if you like elevated relaxation. You can find popular brands like Coleman, Mac Sports, Rio Brands, and even our own Fleet Farm lounge and folding chairs to choose from for your campsite.

Whether you’re sleeping under the stars or in a tent, sleeping bags, pads, and blankets are great ways to make your camping experience a little more comfortable. Recreational campers who go camping a few times a year may want to look at reasonably priced sleeping bags and camping pads. Airbeds and pumps can also add comfort to your camping experience. There are also warmer, more form-fitting, mummy sleeping bags that can withstand harsh temperatures for the more adventurous, year-round campers. Check out our wide selection of sleeping gear from the brands you trust like Kelty, Field & Forest, Wenzel, and Slumberjack.

There’s nothing like grilling burgers, frying fish, or cooking s’mores on a cool summer night. Classic campfire cooking items like cast-iron pans and skillets are a must for open fire cooking. Other essentials like the Coghlan’s camp grill help you hold your cooking equipment above your campfire for a safer, more efficient cooking experience. If you’re looking for a different way to cook, you should check out the wide range of stoves, charcoal grills, and cooking sets for you to choose from. Don’t forget to bring along some tongs and picnic forks to easily rotate and transfer your food from fire to plate.
