Everything You Need for a Perfect Backyard Campout

(Source: The Food Channel)

Sometimes one of the best places to get the kids active and out of the house, may actually be right in your own backyard. Backyard camping may actually be the perfect getaway adventure. You don’t have to deal with permits, parking, and the peace of mind of not forgetting any supplies can make the trip all the more relaxing. When it comes to creating your own backyard camp, anything goes from your most comfortable pillow and blanket to the food on the menu. When crafting out our own backyard campout, we would recommend starting with all the essentials you would normally take with you during a car camping trip and later customize it by adding things to your liking.

Have a huge—and we mean huge tent to sleep in.

Find a tent large enough to the point where you may even consider this glamping instead of camping. You may go as large as you’d like, but we’d recommend finding a tent that is rated 2-3 persons more than the number of sleepers intended.

The Coleman Montana 8 Person Tent

This 8-person tent is a car camper dream with enough luxurious space for a backyard with 6 ft of height and large enough to fit 3 queen-sized air beds. It 2000-denier polyethylene floor feels almost like a tarp and rugged enough to withstand kids and pets. There’s also plenty of mesh around the top for star gazing and breathability.


Bring the comfort of your bed to the outdoors

Etekcity Camping Air Mattress

Because why not bring the comfort of sleeping on a bed to the outdoors? The Etekcity’s camping air mattress provides plush comfort and provides about 9-inches off the ground and puncture resistant. The air mattress also comes with an inflatable pump to make inflating and deflating this bed a breeze.


Rumpl The Original Puffy Blanket

Rumpl makes a soft and comfy blanket for any day in the outdoors. The DWR coating repels spilled drinks, popcorn, chocolate, pet hair, or almost anything you throw at it.

Snacks, food, & bevies 

Yeti Tundra 35

During hot summer days, you’ll need a durable cooler that keeps drinks cold and food preserved. Yeti’s hard coolers are step above your average cooler and claimed to have more insulation power than its previous models. Use this cooler for other events such as tailgating, road trips, fishing trips, or any outdoor adventure.

Stainless Steel Cups or Tumblers Ozark Trail 

Hydro Flask Can Cooler Cup 

Ditch the glasses at home and find some tumbler or cooler cups that can keep your beverages cold longer and durable enough withstand drops or spills. 

Turn your backyard to a luxurious campsite

Solo Stove Yukon


Designed for producing less smoke and more flame, the Solo Stove Yukon creates an efficient and longer lasting bonfire without the use of fans or batteries. Bring this to any outdoor adventure or party for grilling hotdogs or making smores.

MPOWER Luci Solar String Lights

Keep the backyard lit and everyone in wanderlust with MPOWERD’s solar power lights. The lights can be strung around your yard and controlled with your smartphone when it’s time to hit the sack.


Camp Chairs

Find a camp chair that fits your needs and comfort. There are plenty to choose from with wide variations. To make things more intimate, have a chair with a loveseat to make the nights more comfy.
