Two weeks ago I enjoyed a few days of hiking and climbing in Joshua Tree National Park, a unique desert environment in Southern California. It was a car camping trip, so our cars were stuffed with coolers, big tents, thick air mattresses, and more. What a contrast from a backpacking trip! Sitting around the campfire I couldn’t help but notice the fancy camping chairs and stools that looked far more comfortable than my simple beach chair!
Car camping seating options have really evolved… there are options that sit high off the ground like a regular chair, have built in cup holders and magazine/book pockets! I even noticed some that recline!
Do you have a fancy car camping chair? What are your favorites? My $20 beach chair does the job… so is it worth $100 to get a reclining car camping chair with a built in cup holder? I’ve love to know what you think!
Happy trails and happy camping!
