I don’t know about you, but I love camping. What’s my favorite place to get camping supplies? I find the Best Camping Gear on Amazon, of course! I’ve built up my supply of camping items over the years.
Best Camping Gear on Amazon
Let’s talk about all the wants, needs, and must-haves for the best camping gear on Amazon. Let’s do the fun stuff first!
Chairs & Tables | Best Camping Gear on Amazon
It’s a cot, but it looks like it makes a great chair too! Great for parents with toddlers.
Regalo My Cot Portable Toddler Bed, Includes Fitted Sheet, Royal Blue
Portable friendly and lightweight!
Durability – Made with a steel frame that’s lightweight and can hold up to 75 lbs.
Usability! This can be used as two chairs or one cot.
Bonus – comes with a fitted sheet!
No Storage Bag – This product doesn’t come with a handy carrying case.
Comfort – This cot isn’t super comfortable for kids to sleep on.
Lightweight Air Lounger – Many people report that these are difficult to inflate. However, I didn’t have that issue. It does take some effort, but heck it’s kinda fun to inflate in my experience! These are fun, and comfortable to lay on. Much like a hammock without the hassle of hanging it up in a tree.
Durability – Made with durable material
Support – It can support up to 400 lbs.
Pockets – This inflatable chair comes with pockets. We all know everything is better with pockets. There is a mesh pocket that can support a beer or soda.
Inflation Issues – A little awkward to set up.
Inflation Time – It only stays inflated for about 4-5 hours.
This oversized club camp chair is super comfy! This chair is made for a big guy or gal. It’s one of the comfiest camping chairs on the market. The construction is strong. However, it is a bit heavy.
Oversized Club Camp Chair
Removable Cover – The cover can be removed and cleaned.
Oversized! – Big enough to support a large person.
Sturdy – It can support up to 500 lbs.
Comfortable – One of the most comfortable camping chairs you’ll sit in!
HOT – Material doesn’t seem to be breathable. Great in cooler weather, no so great in the summer heat.
Bigger and Heavier – It’s made for large adults. This is a big chair for a big guy. May not be suitable for smaller folks.
Keep your buddies close with this loveseat camping chair! It’s a little heavier than your typical camping chair however, totally worth it!
The only thing it’s missing is cup holders!
It looks as though the seller as updated this product to only include the loveseat which does have cupholders. The 3-seater didn’t seem to have those.
LoveSeat Heavy Duty Oversized Folding Double Camp Chair Collection
2 or 3 seats – You can choose a double or triple seater.
Support – Supports up to 300 lbs. per seat!
Backpack carrying case – Keep your hands free with the backpack tote!
Built-in Bottle Opener – Open them beer up with a hidden bottle opener!
No cup holders? It’s 2020, there should always be pockets and cup holders! This is a huge design flaw. Since there is plenty of room between chairs, this was a missed opportunity to add some much-needed cup holders!
This table is collapsible & insulated. It can hold some beers and a snack! The best part is the little cooler to hold your cold beers on the bottom. It’s great for camping, tailgating and more!
Collapsible Folding Camping Beach Table with Insulated Cooler, Food Basket and Travel Bag for Barbecue, Picnic & Tailgate
Folds up for easy storage!
Cooler – under the table there is a cooler to keep your beers cold!
4 cup holders
Small cup holders – Big enough for a long-neck bottle.
Poor Insulation – The cooler could be insulated a little better to help keep the ice cold.
Large snack area – You need a very large bowl to fit in the snack area or you’ll lose snack in the mesh pocket.
Kitchen & Cooking Gear
Sinks for washing dishes
Coleman Folding Sink – This collapsible sink comes in super handy. It’s not necessary since you can wash dishes without a sink, but keeping sand and dirt off the clean dishes is easier this way.
Coleman Folding Double Wash Basin
Portability – It folds up for convenience, about the size of a suitcase.
Ease of Use – This product is very easy to set up and use.
Durability – Clear material of the basin is not super strong and tends to tear and leak.
Sharps – You shouldn’t clean anything sharp in this basin.
Warm water – Warm water may ruin this product.
Compact and Convenient – It’s collapsible, and has two handles for easy carrying.
Multiple Uses – Use it to carry small sticks, or store blanket in it until you get to the camp, etc…
Durable – Made with durable materials
Warm Water OK! – This sink can operate in water tempted at 0-140ºF!
Annoying sticker on the bottom, difficult to get off unless you have some Goo Gone one hand.
Collapses – Can collapse while in use.
Cooking with the Best Camping Gear on Amazon
If you really want to get fancy with your camp cooking, you can grab this Coleman Camp Oven!
Coleman Camp Oven
Coleman Propane Stove – Definitely not a necessity, but it’s nice to have if you don’t want to cook over a fire.
Coleman Gas Camping Stove, Classic
Coleman Fold N Go Propane Stove
Folds up small – perfect for camping and travel with its compact size!
2 burners – great for cooking breakfast and making coffee at the same time!
1 hour run time for each burner using a 16.4 oz propane cylinder.
Push-button start – You don’t need matches to get this stove lit!
Grates too high – This can mean heat loss.
No wind guard – With any small breeze the flame is at risk of blowing out.
Temperature control is a little difficult, especially on the low end.
Coleman Grill & Stove
Removable grease trap
Fits up to a 10-inch pan
Grill grate can melt – Apparently, if you place aluminum foil on the grate it will melt it! Also, it’s not for use with pans either. Think cooking hamburgers and hot dogs on the grill. Pans can be used on the stove.
Matchlight stove – It doesn’t have a instant light function
Fire hazard – Grease trap is made of plastic.
Camp Chef PRO90X Three Burner Camp Stove
Many fuel sources – wood, gas, twigs, solid fuel tablets, coal, and even leaves.
Super compact – This thing folds up really small.
Pans – You can actually use pans on this thing!
100% money back guarantee (according to description)
Easy to use
Protective film – comes with an annoying film that’s difficult to remove.
Outdoor Camp Oven and Double Burner Stove In One!
EcoZoom Camping Stove
Portable Kitchen – Perfect place to set the propane stove! You can also do dishes and prepare food in this portable kitchen.
Coleman Pack-Away Kitchen
Portability – This kitchen can be folded up for portability.
Removable sink – There’s a place for a sink, it’s easily removable so you can use the space for something else.
Paper towel holder
Shelves – Plenty of shelf space
Paper towel holder is placed on with suction cups and tends to fall down.

8Pcs Camping Cookware Kitchen Utensil Organizer Travel Set – with Water Resistant Case, Cutting Board, Rice Paddle, Tongs, Scissors, Knife.
Camping Utensil Travel Set
Coleman Rugged 12-Piece Stainless Steel Utensil – We usually do a lot of finger foods while camping, but I do love a good camp soup. These come in handy when we have soup. I especially love the roll-up pouch they came with!
Coleman Rugged 12-Piece Stainless Steel Utensil Set
Coleman’s 24 piece Enamel Dinner Set – I just love this set. It’s a great value for the set also. Sometimes it’s nice to have these packed in the camping gear instead of trying to find what you need in your kitchen as you’re packing.
Coleman 24-Piece Enamel Dinnerware Set, Red
Pots & Pans
Lodge 5 Quart Cast Iron Dutch Oven
You can also get a set of lightweight pans, great for backpacking and camping.
Handles fold up for easier storage
Scratching – Can’t use metal utensils it would scratch the non-stick surface
Small – These pans are small for the suggested use of cooking for 4 people.
The carrying case is a little on the small side. Hard to get all of the pieces in the bag.
Tea Kettle – A tea kettle is great for making stuff like a cup of ramen noodles, or for heating up water to add to your Mountain House freeze-dried meals, or just brewing some hot tea!
Camp Cookware Set
Percolator – I love these things. I actually broke my third drip coffee pot, and just pulled my trusty percolator out and used it for probably a year before switching to a French Press. I’ll never go back to drip coffee. Call me a coffee snob if you want…
Enamel Percolator with 4 Mugs
Over the Fire Pit Grill – Yes, you can just throw your potato wrapped in foil right into the fire, but if you want to grill a couple of hamburger and hot dogs over the fire these will come in handy!
Swing-Away Campfire Grill
Griddle – Forget making the soup, let’s make some breakfast!
Non-Stick Camp Griddle
Fits most 2 burner, camping stoves
Easy to clean
Grease and Bacon – This grill doesn’t respect greasy foods like bacon. There is simply nowhere for the great to go.
Campfire? – I don’t see anywhere on the description or product that say you can put this on a product like below (camp grill) I think this is where the warping issues are coming in. I believe this product is supposed to be used on a gas stove only.
Heavy Duty Camp Grill
These reviews take up a lot of bandwidth and I’ve had to break this up into a few different pages so that the page doesn’t load super slow!
