Finding good quality discount camping gear on the internet can be a frustrating challenge. Most of what you get returned in the search engine results is online stores trying to sell camping gear at prices that are anything but a discount.
While sacrificing quality to be able to pay a few dollars less for camping gear is not recommended, it is possible to find good quality discount camping gear at great prices.
There are however a few items of camping gear that are very important in ensuring that you experience the best camping trip possible and these should always be of the best quality.
Here are the few items that you should never sacrifice quality for the price.
Your tent is your single source of protection from the elements and needs to be strong and durable for many years of use.
A good quality sleeping bag will always keep you warm and as my Mom always liked to say, as snug as a bug in a rug.
I had always bought a cheaper air mattress in hopes of saving a little money and soon found out that I had to buy a new mattress every two or three camping trips. Plus a good quality air mattress gives you a much better night’s sleep.
Here are some of the places that I have found where you can get good quality discount camping gear.
Wal-Mart has a very good selection of quality camping gear at very good prices and is one of the best places where you can find discount camping gear.
They have a lot of name brand products at prices far lower then you can find in any of the other stores. If dealing with the big crowds that are always present at most Wal-Mart stores isn’t your cup of tea, then try WalMart.com. You can usually buy the same items at even lower prices then you will find at the store.
I always love picking up camping gear at eBay as there is always a huge selection of camping gear at some great prices. If you always reed over the auction very carefully and check the feed back of the seller, you shouldn’t ever have any problems with buying camping gear on eBay.
These are the two best places that I have found to find discount camping gear online, and I will be on the lookout for others and share them with you when I find them.
These next two places are a little higher in price then Wal-Mart and eBay, but you won’t find better quality camping gear at very reasonable prices.
I just love this store and could spend hours just walking around and looking at everything that they have. I’m like a kid in a candy store when it comes to G.I. Joe’s.
I don’t think that Cabela’s needs much of an explanation as they are by far the most well-known store for hunting, fishing and camping gear you will ever find. I only have one gripe about Cabela’s and that is that they don’t have a store closer to my home so that I could wander around their store for hours and hours.
So be sure to check these places out to find some great discount camping gear.
