13 Camping Must-Haves For People Who Aren’t ‘Outdoorsy’

I’m not really what you would call an “outdoorsy” person. I appreciate the comforts of the great indoors, which means camping has never been my favorite pastime. Don’t get me wrong, my love of stargazing and roasting marshmallows make me want to enjoy camping, but the bugs and dirt tend to take away from the rosy glow. But you can still enjoy the delightful parts of Mother Nature while not missing out on those cozy comforts you love.

These camping must-haves will help you “glamp” in style:

Poler Reversible Nap Sack

Use this cozy puffer nap sack as a sleeping bag or to lounge around the campfire.

Yurts are a really lovely way to enjoy sleeping in the outdoors. You can fit two full-size air mattresses in this waterproof tent that comes equipped with two stove jacks. You also have the option to roll up the sides to enjoy those balmy summer evenings comfortably.
