What are the best camping and outdoor deals for Prime Day?

The great outdoors offers us a space to reconnect with ourselves and our planet. Whether you prefer mountains, valleys, oceans or lakes, they all provide environments to ground and revitalize yourself. Camping and outdoor equipment can be expensive, though, so it’s great that on Prime Day, you can save on tents, lanterns, survival kits and just about anything else for your camping trips this summer or fall. 

What is Prime Day?

Amazon offers a special time of year called Prime Day around mid-July. This is when Prime members can make the best of their membership with dramatic savings offered site-wide. This year’s event has already begun with teaser deals on an assortment of items, but its official dates are on July 12 and 13. If you don’t already have a membership, Prime has a 30-day free trial period that can be canceled at any time. 

What kinds of camping and outdoor deals can I find on Prime Day?

As a Prime member, you can get deals on camping and outdoor equipment of all kinds. No matter your needs — whether for an air mattress to sleep comfortably outside or a deck of playing cards to entertain your group — there’s a deal for that. High-quality brands such as Yeti participate in this sale that reduces the price of its coolers and other products. You can also find hammocks, multitools and other outdoor equipment.

Hanging out

When you go camping, set yourself up for success by getting everything you need to hang for a while. You’ll need a cooler, a light, a place to sit and a pack at minimum to have maximum comfort while experiencing what outside has to offer. In your pack you can bring anything needed to snack, a change of clothes, hand sanitizer and more.
