What makes a great camping holiday? A good quality tent, warm sleeping bags and comfortable camping chairs. Many happy campers forget that the majority of their trip will be spent sat on a camping chair, but when asked what is most important they’ll say the tent and a sleeping bag.
We want to put the emphasis back on camping chairs by highlighting the quality and versatility of some well-known and not so recognisable brands.
Here are our recommendations for the ten best camping chairs:
