Best Camping Gear Deals

Chloe Jeong / TripSavvy

Let's face it, the gear you pack for a camping trip can really make or break the entire experience. And while shopping for the correct gear can often get pricey, you can still go camping on a budget and have your trip go smoothly. Luckily, big outdoors retailers like REI, Backcountry, and more often have sales on their luxe selection of outdoor gear.

“I always tell people not to get overwhelmed when looking for camping gear because there are a number of ways to find affordable things to get you outside,” says Shanti Hodges, owner of Wild Utah Tours guide company and founder of Hike it Baby.

Hodges suggests regularly scanning big retailers and keeping an eye out for when gear gets marked down. And if you haven’t already, make a list of the essential camping gear you need for your kit, and a list of some nice-to-have items, to help plan your buys.

We rounded up some of the best Black Friday deals on camping gear that you can shop right now.
