As any camper worth their salt will tell you, having the right camping gear can make a huge difference in whether or not the trip is a success.
If the weather turns, supplies run low or equipment fails, a dream camping trip can quickly become a nightmare outing.
To help ensure yours is the perfect camping trip, here are a list of some of the best camping supplies online all in one neat, tidy little package.
For sleeping under the stars
Ask any camper, even the die hard Jeremiah Johnson type, what the most frustrating thing about camping is and you’re likely to hear getting a good night’s rest. The sounds of the forest with the warmth emanating from a recent campfire are certainly soothing, but rolling over onto rocks, pine cones and rock hard ground can make one a bit…restless. That’s what makes sleeping mats a great camping gear addition. Heartland America takes the joy of a good nights rest even further with their Acupoint Pressure Mat.

For white water lovers

For the slow to get moving
Certainly camping loses a bit of it’s luster when there are hair dryers droning on in the morning, TV’s cranked up and tuned to Oprah, and the young ‘uns are battling aliens from the planet Zorg on their video games. But when searching for camping supplies online, this Propane Coffee Maker from Gander Mountain should be on every campers list. And it won’t make you a campsite heathen (like the equipment above), just the most popular person within a 15 square mile radius.
