I stopped going camping because I got tired of the hours of late-night setup, no sleep and the seemingly constant discomfort. I only have so many vacation days and I don’t want to spend them dirty and miserable.

That being said, I’m a traveler and I really love to immerse myself nature. I miss camping. With rising Airbnb costs, I’m preparing to get back into it – but not without a few key items to make my outdoor stay a little more…plush. It’s time to level up to glamping!

I scoured Amazon for the best of the best camping items, and I think you’ll LOVE the things I found. If you’re sick of fighting with tent poles, getting back cramps on cheap sleeping pads or losing your way in the dark, this list is for you. I’ve included the essentials, along with cool gadgets like collapsible camping lanterns, sleep headphones, battery operated fans and mug heaters to help you get comfortable wherever you’re traveling!
