Camping Gadgets and Gear

Watch for updates to this page as I share handy products and gear for camping enthusiast.

If you have ideas for handy camping gear that you love, feel free to comment!  I'd love to hear your ideas.

We have added a little Duraflame Cube Heater to our camper for the winter for a little ambiance and warmth.  These are a steal and are super cute!  They also stay cool to the touch.

Solar String lights are handy on your awning and save you from using extension cords.

Telescoping marshmallow roasting sticks can also be used with hot dogs.  These are compact, well made and extend for safe use around the fire!

We recently installed this refrigerator in our pop up camper and think that it works great and keeps things nice and cold.  With a price only slightly above a dorm fridge but much less than an absorption fridge, this is a product that will save you money without sacrificing quality!  You can read my review of this fridge on my post about Adding a Refridgerator to Your Pop Up Camper.

Making sure that your camper is level is important to safety when camping.  These Camco Leveling Pads are lightweight to pack and store while working great!  We love ours and wish we had bought them sooner!

A first aid kid should be one of the first things you pack in our camper.  This compact and well organized kit is competitively priced and is a great investment for your summer gear!  Full review on my Safety First post from March 2017.

This handy outdoor rug is fun and comes with a storage bag to easily pack and stow!  The perfect addition to your outdoor gear.

If you are looking for light clips to go around the awning on your camper, these are easy and come in a variety of styles based on the kinds of lights that you have on your camper.  We have a couple of sets stored with our lights so that we are always ready!


If you a looking for a cooking option that will serve as an oven and a large pot for casseroles and stews, the Lodge Cast Iron Dutch Oven is it!  You will need a charcoal starter, lid lifter and some heat resistant gloves to make this something that you use with ease.  Also, find out more about Dutch Oven Cooking and how I do it at our campsite.


Another fun camping gadget for making pies, pizza or easy breakfast sandwiches over a fire are pie irons.  

Don't forget your fur babies!  They want to camp too!  This little portable play yard is inexpensive and folds flat!  It is the perfect addition to your camping set up.  Take a look at our camping dog and how we camp with our chihuahua.

Storage of your pop up camper during the winter requires some thought and planning.  Here are a few products that I think are great!  You definitely need a cover and some rodent repellent!


A porta potty is a great addition to any camper.  We have the Thetford Curve Porta Potti and LOVE it!  Find a full review of this Potti on my blog.  After several months - we still love it!  Potti Talk


Our pop up camper needed a container for waste water coming out of our sink.  We opted for a rolling model that is easy to wheel away and dump.

Reliance Products Hydroller 8 Gallon wheeled water container -

I purchased an Eno Double Nest Hammock last year at an event, and I love it!  Compact and so durable!  This is about $25 less than the price I paid!  And it is the same one!

If you are going to use a city water hook up at camp sites, the water pressure is probably going to be too high.  A pressure regulator can easily be attached to the hose to control the water pressure in your pop up.  This is the same one that I purchased at Camping World, and it is $4 less!  Also, avoid Rookie Mistakes like we made as we started camping this year.  There are always new lessons to learn while camping.
