    1. An outdoor rocking chair so you can relax comfortably by the campfire with your feet up. Forget those classic camp chairs — once you try this you'll never bring another chair camping again.

    2. A Coleman airbed that will elevate your camping experience to a whole new level. And yes, it's still camping if you're sleeping on a blowup mattress.

    3. An air pump to blow up your aforementioned airbed. Spend less time setting up and more time appreciating nature.

    4. A Yeti wine tumbler because obviously, the best camping is wine-drunk camping. It doesn't come with a lid, though, so make sure you add that to your cart before checking out.

    5. A LifeStraw water filter that literally allows you to drink water from a river or lake without fear of serious illness. So, it's basically magic.

    6. A North Face backpack so you can carry all your essentials on your back and not worry about them getting damaged or wet. Plus, when you get home, you can use it as an everyday pack.

    7. A catch-all gear bag that over 700 reviewers attest to being the perfect little addition to any trip. With over 1,200 cubic inches of space, you can fit all the little things you'll actually need *plus* all that extra stuff you don't but will certainly pack anyway.

    8. A cast-iron tri-leg Dutch oven so you can channel your inner Men With The Pot (check out their TikTok if you don't know what I'm talking about) and cook a Michelin star-level meal in the middle of the forest.

    9. A cot complete with an airbed so you don't have to struggle to get up from the ground every morning. This elevated cot makes mornings outdoors much more enjoyable.

    10. A classic Cabela's tent that is well worth the expense. It can accommodate four people comfortable and is sure to make your trip a whole lot more luxurious.

    11. A tactical flashlight because you shouldn't rely on your phone's flashlight in the literal wilderness. Upgrade to this baby and thank me later.

    12. A portable griddle because there's nothing better than pancakes and bacon in the morning when you're camping.

    13. A basic propane lantern which I can attest to being the best piece of camping gear I own. The amount of light that pours out from this thing is nearly blinding. Perfect for the pitch black outdoors!

    14. A durable duffle bag for all your outdoor outfit essentials. This weatherproof bag easily fits bulky jackets and warm blankets if you're camping in low temperatures.

    The tan bag

    15. A portable grill and fire pit that you can use on a multi-day camping trip or just a casual day at the park. Become the Gordon Ramsay of your friend group with this item.

    16. A roll-top dry bag because even when you plan for the weather, the universe can still turn on you. This perfect little bag will keep your gear safe and dry so you don't have to worry about it.

    17. A thermal sleeping bag with insulation that will keep you warm in temperatures as low as zero degrees Fahrenheit. It's simply the most necessary thing to pack.

    18. A walking stick complete with a compass so you won't trip or lose your way while hiking or backpacking to camp. There is nothing wrong with protecting your ankles with this balancing stick.

    19. A portable mosquito repeller that you will worship when those nasty little things start attacking you. This allows you to enjoy your time outdoors without obsessing over potential bug bites.

    20. A fleece sleeping bag liner because arguably one of the worst things to experience when camping is being cold at night. With this, you won't even have to worry about it.

    21. A pack of fire sticks so you can start a fire without having to rub two sticks together and hope they create enough friction to ignite. No, this isn't cheating — it's genius.

    22. A deluxe camp kitchen for when you feel like cooking a gourmet meal in the middle of the forest. Seriously, you'll never have to worry about cooking space again with this in your back pocket.

    23. A camp stove so you don't have to try and cook everything over an open fire. Just attach a fuel canister and you'll have a full stove ready to go.
