High-quality essentials that won’t break the bank.
With warm days and cool nights ahead, autumn is the best time to take a camping trip. The season’s mild weather is ripe for hiking, rafting, mountain biking, and of course, cooking over a campfire. Campers who love to cook know that a homemade meal tastes even better after a long day of outdoor activities — but with unpredictable weather and limited access to resources, cooking outside isn’t as easy as it’s cracked up to be. While you could always lean on canned and freeze-dried foods for sustenance, sleeping under the stars doesn't mean you have to make culinary compromises, as long as you come prepared.
Whether you’re an experienced backpacker or are new to camping, the proper tools are a must if you’d rather dine in style than rough it. But between ingredients, utensils, and appliances, the expenses can start to add up. Luckily, Amazon is slashing prices on some of our favorite brands — with discounts up to 45%. From camping stoves to utensils and travel-friendly spices, these camping essentials are all on sale, and prices start at just $11.
