OxyLED Super Bright 800 Lumens Flashlight | FIND IT
Who couldn’t use an extra flashlight at the campground? This one is packed with great features. It’s made of an aircraft-grade aluminum alloy, it’s water resistant, and it has five light modes: three brightness levels, a strobe and an SOS function. And its long-lasting LED has a projected lifespan of more than 50,000 hours! This flashlight comes in a bundle priced at about $25 that includes a rechargeable battery, charger and charger base.
Advanced Elements 5-Gallon (Solar) Summer Shower | FIND IT
Encouraging kids to take a shower with water heated by the sun is great way to teach them about sustainability and give them a little science lesson at the same time! Priced at about $30, the Advanced Elements 5-gallon Summer Shower features 4-ply construction with reflector and insulator panels, an extra-large filling valve, side pocket for soap and shampoo, a water temperature gauge and Velcro straps to hold wash cloths.
FireStix Marshmallow Roasting Sticks | FIND IT
What could be better than a great set of roasting sticks for making s’mores and hot dogs? How about a set that telescopes from a generous 34” down to a very packable 10”? Plus, each stick in this six-stick set has a different colored handle so the kids can easily tell which one is theirs. Priced at less than $15, the set comes packed in a heat-resistant canvas pouch and includes 20 wooden skewers, too.
Coleman Road Trip Propane Portable Grill LXE | FIND IT
This portable grill seems to have everything you would need for barbecuing success at the campground. It folds down to a compact size for transporting, sets up quickly and features InstaStart technology for matchless lighting. It also includes two cast iron, porcelain-coated grill grates, and additional accessories, such as an extra grill or griddle or a wheeled carrying case are sold separately. Prices start at around $120.
Trekk Solar Camping Lantern with Waterproof Storage | FIND IT
Priced at about $20, this little green LED lantern packs in a lot of features. It’s solar powered, but it can also be charged with the included USB charger. It offers a choice of three light settings, low, high and flashing, and it’s collapsible for easy packing and storage. This multi-function lantern can also serve as a 24.9 ounce water bottle that you can also use to store your cell phone, keys or other valuables that you need to keep dry. The carrying handle is detachable, which makes it easy to hang the lantern wherever you need it.
Leatherman Tread | FIND IT
Just when you thought that Leatherman multi-tools couldn’t get any cooler or more practical, along comes the Tread. It’s a stainless steel bracelet that includes 29 handy tools. This versatile bracelet can be adjusted to fit different wrist sizes and includes a variety of screwdrivers, hex drives, box wrenches, a carbide glass breaker, a cutting hook, bottle opener and more. The retail price is $185. A separate company called ChronoLinks even sells an adapter that converts the Leatherman Tread into a watch band.
Coghlans Cooler Light | FIND IT
If you’re looking for a practical stocking stuffer, consider a Coghlans Cooler Light. Priced at less than $10, this handy little gadget attaches to the inside of the top of your cooler and works like the light inside your fridge. When you open the cooler – voila! - you have light! And this battery-operated light turns off as soon as you close the lid.
