The Ultimate Family-Friendly Camping Gear Guide

With 13,000 public campgrounds in the US and Canada (and that doesn’t even count private ones or go-pitch-a-tent-in-an-abandoned-field ones), we have good reason to believe that the oftentimes thought of extinct act of camping does still, in fact, exist. That there are still families who own a sleeping bag and a canteen and aren’t afraid to put down the smartphone for a night or two warms our souls.

Instead of the mental anguish that often accompanies back-to-school shopping, make sure you’re at the head of the class with these smart shopping helps.
