Furniture options for camping

The increasingly greater choice of camping furniture and chairs on the market in the camping stores may tempt you to splash out on that special item of comfort without thinking too much about its size or weight. But if you get your setup right, you can still have an extremely comfortable and relaxing camping experience without all of the bells and whistles.

Once again, the furniture for our camping setup needs to be functional, comfortable, light weight, compact when packed up and easy to set up and pack up.


The main items of furniture used for our campsite are:
  • Chairs: For our setup, we recommend one quad folding camping / outdoor chair per person. Quad folding chairs save on packing space compared to those that flat fold, especially when packing your car according to our packing guidelines.
  • Tables: While you might not take all tables on every camping trip, you will need table or bench space to rest your camping stove, as a work bench and for use as a dining table
  • Shelving: While not absolutely essential, shelving or other ways to vertically store the gear / kitchen items will help organise your campsite, keep everything off the ground, reduce the strain on your back and better utilise your limited floor space.
