The Best Camping Gadgets of 2023, Tested by Outdoor Editors

The Best Camping Gadgets of 2023, Tested by Outdoor Editors

Table of Contents

Only a few short decades ago, camping was a whole different animal. Most campers looking to “rough it” hoofed it into the woods under their own power, wearing all cotton clothes and weather-beaten leather boots. They sat on rocks around campfires they built by hand using old-school methods passed down from their ancestors.

But this isn’t that time—not even close. We’re living in a golden age of high-tech outdoor gear. We’re talking next-gen camping gadgets to help us stay drier, warmer, and more comfortable almost indefinitely. We can binge-stream any Netflix series on a 12-inch waterproof tablet via 5G Wi-Fi from the middle of nowhere, while relaxing on a heated seat around a raging campfire that took us less than a minute to build. In the morning, we can plug our electric griddle into a portable solar generator, and fire up fresh pancakes and omelets while checking our TikTok follower count. This is truly different times, my friends.

We’re living in the 21st century and “roughing it” has never felt so luxurious. So, our outdoor-loving editors and writers wanted to find the gadgets that make camping easier, better, and more enjoyable. We reviewed hundreds of products and cool tech gadgets over the last year, and these are some of the very best camping gadgets of 2023.
