12 Items Turn Camping into a Luxury Experience

Spending time in the great outdoors no longer has to mean leaving all those creature comforts at home.

Whoever said enjoying the great outdoors has to mean roughing it was wrong! Gone are the days when camping entailed heading to the middle of nowhere and suffering through the experience with nothing but the most primitive tools and basic supplies.

Slickdeals has curated a camping gear list that will help you turn any camping trip into a fun and quality time. A few key purchases will convince the most hesitant of friends and family to sign up for an outdoor adventure — and keep them coming back.

These days, camping in style starts from the ground up — literally. Get a Field and Stream 6-pack of campsite flooring (Sale Price: $19.99 | Reg. Price: $24.99), and any rough surface in even the most questionable conditions can become a cushioned space that keeps tents dry.

If such a basic camp building block isn’t enough to win over those near and dear who demand their mundane creature comforts (like caffeine), a Coleman 10-cup portable propane coffeemaker (Reg. Price: $99.99, plus free shipping) should convince them camping might not be so bad after all.

Currently, I contribute to and write for multiple news sites and websites, including the Discovery Channel. I stretch my budget by keeping an eye on the Slickdeals app on my phone and use the extra savings to travel the world in style whenever possible.
