27 Luxury Camping Gear and Accessories to go from Camping to Glamping

Luxury Camping Gear

Consider yourself an outdoorsy person that prefers lounging on the patio, sipping wine over roughing it in the middle of the woods? A new way of camping, called “glamorous camping,” or glamping, for short, is enthralling the world. Rather than making do with the minimal tools and camping gear, glamping allows people to enjoy the outdoors without giving up the civilized essentials like a luxury camping tent, decent bed, toilet, and kitchen.

Here are 27 luxury camping gear and accessories to make you a glamping pro:

Glamping Luxuries and Necessities

1. Dream House 4 Season Cabin with Stove Jack

Aspiring to live like a glamping nomad? The 4-Season Cabin by Dream House gives you the chance to do just that. The cotton canvas fabric is made with 3000mm waterproof PU-coated materials, is structured to ventilate in the summer and insulate in the winter, and has screen meshing for when bugs are biting. The only downside is that the tent will not hold up in extremely windy places (it can withstand up to 6 degree wind). Since a stove jack is also included, you can bring in a portable heater or mini wood burning stove during the wintertime to keep you toasty. This is one of the best luxury camping tents available.

2. Heininger Portable Propane Outdoor Fire Pit

Fancy making s’mores over a campfire but cannot get one started no matter how hard to you try? Just bring the fire pit then. The Heininger Portable Outdoor Fire Pit weighs only 22 pounds and operates off of propane to deliver an astounding 58,000 BTUs of heat. The fire burns clean and is smokeless, meaning you do not have to worry about the smell clinging to all of your gear.

3. Advanced Elements 5-Gallon Summer Solar Shower

Campground showers look like a scene from a horror film? Just bring your own! This 5-Gallon summer show is powered by solar technology. There is a reflector panel, insulator panel, solar panel, and water reservoir to make a warm water shower. The on/off showerhead is water-saving, and is very convenient to bring along. You will also find a pocket for soap, shampoo, and water temperature gauge. It only weighs 1 pound 4 ounces when emptied.

4. Camco Portable Toilet – 5.3-Gallon

Speaking of portable toilets, the 5.3-Gallon Camco version is something that every glamper should have on their wish list for obvious reasons. Glamping is not glamping unless you have a proper place to do your business. There is a sealing valve that keeps in odors and prevents leakage. Easy to clean and empty, this lightweight commodity will be a golden throne in your outdoor haven. If you know you are only glamping for a few days, there is also the 2.9-Gallon version which holds less but is lighter to carry around.

5. Relefree Microfiber Antibacterial Towel

After taking a shower or enjoying a dip in the lake, you are going to need to towel off. This microfiber towel is quick drying and super absorbent. The antibacterial fabric also keeps it from smelling odd after drying. When you do not need a towel, the soft towel is also big enough to serve as a blanket or can be rolled up to be used as a pillow. You get two towels (the body size and a hand/face towel), as well as a mesh carrying bag. It comes in 3 colors: blue, gray, and pink.

6. Youphoria Multi-Purpose Travel Towel

If you absolutely loathe the way microfiber feels against the skin, another option for glamping towels would be the Youphoria Sport Multipurpose Travel Towel. The material is soft and is more like suede than microfiber. There are various sizes, depending on your needs. Rather than water-repelling, the material can hold up to 4 times its weight in water, dries rapidly, and also resists spills and sand.

7. Image Portable LED Camping Lantern with Ceiling Fan

Since tents and portable housing do not come with ceiling lights built-in, you are going to need to purchase one. The Image Portable LED Camping Lantern with a ceiling fan covers everything. The fan and light are completely adjustable and requires little effort to reposition it wherever it is needed. When you are in a hot location, the fan will keep you cool without generating a lot of noise.

But if you do not need the fan, there is always the USB-charging, magnetized 4-color lamp by Lanlan for ambiance.

8. Anker 21W USB Solar Charger and Powerport

If you plan to go glamping for several days, you are going to come to a point when all of your electronic gadgets are hungering for juice. A solar panel changer will save you the frustration of going without your ereader and iPhone. The Anker 21W has PowerIQ technology, delivering a lightning-fast charge that works on 2 devices simultaneously. The industrial-strength panels are encased in rugged canvas to protect them from the elements. Lightweight (14.7 ounces) and ultra-thin (1.1 inches when folded), this is something every glamper needs.

9. YHONG Multi-colored Fairy String Lights – Battery Operated

Hanging up lights is kind of a glamping must. All the coolest caravans and campsites have outdoor lights. This set of multi-colored fairy lights have a length of 16.4 feet, and the copper wiring is moldable, so you can wind it around trees, in the tent, or around the campsite however you please. There are also 8 modes of lighting and flashing to create the atmosphere of your choosing. Though these lights run off of battery power, they last for 5 days when continuously used.

10. VIAHART Goodminton Set

Ready for some outdoor fun? One of the go-to pastimes when camping would be badminton. The Goodminton Set by VIAHART comes with 2 paddles and 4 birdies. Since these pieces are not made with traditional materials, the weight and packing issue is greatly reduced.

Also, if you want to play badminton at night, consider adding some LED Shuttlecocks to your game. That way, you never lose sight of your birdies as they whiz through the air.

11. KanJam The Ultimate Disc Game

What is KanJam, you ask? Only one of the most fun games ever. KanJan is basically portable ultimate Frisbee, but with cans instead of trees. You can set up KanJam anywhere you go, because the cans are relatively short. Also, when you are not playing Frisbee, you have an extra can for storage. So, it is actually a win-win for every team.

Of course, if you are not a Frisbee fan, there is always horseshoes and portable cornhole boards to set up as well.

12. Campsuds Biodegradable Wash

Staying clean and keeping your cooking ware and utensils pristine is a necessity when living outdoors, but you should not kill the environment because of it. Eco-friendly shampoo, body wash, and dish soap is something every glamping site should have on hand. That is why the biodegradable formula by Campsuds is so revolutionary, because it is gentle enough for skin and scalp but powerful enough to cut through grime on your dinner plates. Plus, it works with both fresh and saltwater.

Shelter and Sleep

13. Coleman WeatherMaster 10-Person Tent

A crucial component of glamping is having the tent that makes you feel right at home. The Coleman WeatherMaster with hinged door and loads of headspace does just that. Whether you really are housing 10 people inside or simply want more room for yourself and a companion, there is more than enough room inside to spread out. This tent is durable, highly waterproof and very simple to set-up since all the poles are color-coded. All you need to is decide how you are going to set up the interior!

14. CORE 12-Person Instant Cabin

Another example of home away from home is the CORE 12-Person Instant Cabin, which has a 2-minute set-up and will comfortably accommodate 3 queen air mattresses. The CORE cabin comes with patented H2O Block Technology to keep you dry even in a downpour and has ground ventilation to keep the interior cool on hot days. There is even an electric cord access port, a gear loft, room dividers, and wall storage. The headspace is high enough for most people to move around without having to crouch.

15. Klymit Static V Lightweight Sleeping Pad

Though inflatable mattress are great, a lightweight sleeping pad like the one made by Klymit is not only luxurious, but it is ideal for a good night’s rest. The pad inflates extremely quick (in 10-15 breaths). Superbly comfortable, temperature-controlling, and excellent support even for bad backs. Since it only weighs 18.1oz, hauling the pad around will never be an issue—so you can pack even more luxuries.

16. Lightspeed Outdoors 2 Person Air Bed Mattress

So maybe a single person sleeping pad is roughing it too much. The Lightspeed Outdoors queen-sized mattress is a lightweight solution that adds a touch of civilization to your glamping bedroom. The mattress is temperature-stabilizing, abrasion resistant, and extremely durable. Included in the set is a battery operated air pump to rapidly inflate or deflate the mattress.

17. TETON Sports Mammoth Queen Size Double Sleeping Bag

For when you are glamping in colder locations, there is the TETON Mammoth, a 0-degree Fahrenheit sleeping bag that will keep you cozy even as the snow piles up outside. The taffeta shell and flannel lining are exquisite. You will never feel a draft of cold once the self-repairing zippers are sealed and the mummy-style hood is flipped over. It is a bit heavy, but since you are glamping, weight probably is not an issue.

18. Leapair Instant Pop-up Privacy Tent

Sometimes you need or want the space to take a shower, inside a protected spot, even when you are miles from any sense of civilization. The Instant Pop-Up Privacy Tent by Leapair is perfect. The waterproof taffeta 191-Denier nylon is durable, and the added flexible steel means that it will hold up in wind, rain, and other weather. The mesh roof ensures ventilation of heat, and you can hang clothing on the integrated clothesline, take a shower, or set up a portable toilet inside.

Kitchen and Cooking

19. Coleman Classic Propane Stove

There are 2 burners with independent controls, so you and a companion can whip up your own meals.

20. Petforu Camping Propane Canister Stove with Cooking Tool Set

For the minimalist glamper who loves their high-tech gadgets, there is the Petforu Canister Stove. You get a non-stick pan, pot, and bowl, plus a collapsible piezoelectric ignition canister stove.

21. Pizzacraft Pizzaque Outdoor Pizza Oven

One of the organizers can even be used as a cooler and/or sink.

23. Stansport Enamel Camping Tableware Set, 24-Piece

The stainless steel cutlery is also ideal for outdoor excursions. Overall, these dinnerware is lightweight, stackable, and are even dishwasher-friendly. Some people have reported that the stainless steel utensils will rust, however.

Because of the rusting factor, you should also check out the APOLLO WALKER Picnic Backpack that has utensils, dishes, 4 wine glasses, cotton napkins, a picnic blanket, and detachable bottle or wine bottle cooler. You also get salt and pepper shakers, which is great because you might forget to bring seasoning otherwise. Though it lacks coffee mugs and bowls, it makes up for that in quality.

24. Yodo XXX-Large Outdoor Waterproof Picnic Blanket

25. Wancle Mini Portable Espresso Machine

Sadly, even when glamping you cannot bring your Keurig machine with you. Yet, for those who need a shot of coffee in the morning do not have to go disappointed, because there are portable coffee machines like the Wancle Mini Espresso maker. All you need is a single scoop of ground coffee, hot water, and some upper body strength to operate the hand pump. Battery and electricity free, you can take this lightweight coffee maker anywhere.

26. RestCollection Foldable Wine Bottle

foldable wine bottle

So, coffee is great and all…but glamping would not be glamping if you could not enjoy a glass of wine or several while watching the sunset through the streets from your tent or blanket. That is why you need resealable, collapsible wine bottles to bring wine with you wherever you go. The heavy duty BPA-free plastic is easy to fill, and the screw top makes pouring hassle-free. Also, these foldable bottles are great because you do not get any nasty scents or flavors.

27. Mountain House Classic Assortment Bucket

You bring camping food that can be reconstituted in under 10 minutes just by using water.
