What Gear Do I Need To Camp?

Hey there!

It can be difficult to know what type of gear to get for your next camping trip. Fear not – we are here to help! Here are a couple thoughts to keep in mind when planning your next expedition: 

  1. What type of camping are you planning? If you are car camping, you’ll need car camping gear, like a rooftop tent.
  2. Backyard with the kids. You don’t need much gear for this one – you can always retreat to the house!
  3. Casual, fun trip into the woods. Staying overnight in the woods doesn’t have to be complicated, but you’ll need a few more items.
  4. Advanced, multi-day trip into the wild. This type of camping is on a whole different level, and we won’t really go into it here.

At ACS, we have the gear to get you started on a light camping trip (think the 1st 3 above). Here’s what we recommend starting with if you’re just getting started:

1. Our 2 Person Camping Tent. Here’s what it offers:

  • Super easy setup
  • Enough space for 2 people
  • Has a unique blend of nylon and polyester that makes it a durable and waterproof camping tent
  • Super light – about 5lbs total

This tent is a great affordable option to get your camping on!

2. The Mummy Sleeping Bag. Here are some of the benefits:

    • Pick your size – both kiddo and adult friendly
    • The mummy-style sleeping bag enhances the warmth
    • Super light – only 2.5lbs
    • 80% down to feather ratio. What this means: high quality and max warmth
    • Perfect for 3-season camping

    3. Our Inflatable Camping Pillow. This camping pillow is simple, affordable, and does the job well.

    • Contours in the pillow for maximum comfort
    • Super easy to store at 2.2oz and the size of a soda can
    4. BONUS: The Manual Coffee Grinder. We have a lot of pride in this coffee grinder – compact but durable, it’s the way to go for your morning dose of caffeine. A few of our favorite characteristics:
    • Adjustable grinder settings based on what type of coffee you want
    • Super sturdy – no wobbling from this grinder!
    • Aluminum exterior with stainless steel internal components

    That’s a wrap! What do you think? As always, happy camping, and thanks for perusing American Camp Supply for your camping supplies and needs.
