Whether you're the type of person who loves to take regular camping trips or you're a camping novice, it's never a bad idea to have trusted camp gear in your hands. To help any camper prep for the next trip to the great outdoors, or inspire gifting ideas for loved ones who enjoy getting outside, we have scoured Amazon and have gathered the best camping essentials and travel gear you'll need to comfortably (and safely) enjoy days under the sun and nights under the stars, even if it's your first camping trip.

You don't have to go all out — you can pack your bags and hit the road for a car camping trip nearby at a campground or national park (and maybe bring a swimsuit or two while you're at it). Or, create the ambiance of a campsite right in your backyard to create a unique staycation. No matter the camping option you choose, now you'll have the gear to make your camping experience complete.

From a sleeping bag that doesn't cost a fortune to tents, coolers, hiking shoes, sun shelters and high-tech equipment, shop our selection of the best camping gear on Amazon below for both old and new campers to get ready for their next camping trip this summer.
