A compact flashlight, because a flashlight is one of the *most* vital tools to have while camping. Luckily this one is lightweight, meaning you can easily pack it into your already-full backpack.
A portable infrared grill that’ll cook up some amazing pieces of steak and veggies for dinner during your glamping trips.
A Cabela’s cast-iron skillet, because there is no better vessel to cook your food in than a cast-iron skillet while camping.

A 3-in-1 can cooler so you can keep your drinks cool as you lounge lakeside during high noon.
A portable generator, because although camping is a time to get away from technology, it’s always a good idea to have a source of energy in case of emergencies. Consider this if you are going on a long-haul trip in your RV.
A heavy-duty duffle bag that’ll hold all your toiletries, first aid kits, and extra socks you will surely need while camping. (Plus, this bag is a great weekend bag for when traveling opens back up again. Again, it’s always great to be prepared.)

An LED headlamp to save you if your hiking excursion lasts well past sundown. I recently went hiking, and my worst nightmare happened: the sun had set while I was halfway down a canyon, and everything was pitch black. If I didn’t have this handy gadget that shone light wherever I pointed my face, I don’t know what I would have done.
A power bank that lasts for three full charges of your smartphone, making it the perfect amount of energy if you are spending a day or two hiking in the woods.

An outdoor’s lounge chair, because, sometimes, you just want to sit under a tree and relax for a few hours while camping. Why not have a seat that will provide you with neck support and hold your drink during this process?
A Frogg Toggs towel to help you cool off during long summer hikes. Simply wet this towel, and it will keep you literally chill for hours.
A water bottle that has a double filtration for when you’re unsure if you should be drinking fresh water straight from a stream. Having a water filtering system while camping is of the utmost importance when you are hours away from civilization (making you hours away from proper plumbing and medical care if you accidentally drink water that makes your stomach upset).
A hammock to hang near the campfire so that you have a place to lounge if your resident chef is busy cooking up dinner for the group.
A long-range pistol-grip flashlight, that’ll provide you with extra light during dark nights in the middle of the woods. This flashlight shines 1,000 lumens to about 678 meters for up to 3.75 hours, meaning that you won’t have to worry about losing your way in the woods.
Redhead hiking boots with suede uppers that will form to the shape of your foot, providing comfort during long off-trail hikes. Plus, these shoes are 100% waterproof, so you’ll never have to worry about wetting your toes if you accidentally step in a cold stream.
An LED lantern that’ll provide you with light so you can happily curly up and read a book before bed.
And lastly, a bag of wood pellets to get the campfire cookout started. Simply add a handful or two of these pellets to your campfire, and it will flavor your fire for smoking meat or fish.
