Camping beds can make the difference in your sleeping experience outdoors. Waking up with a stiff neck and sore back due to an inferior mattress can make you feel uncomfortable for days. You want a camping bed that is comfortable and reliable so you get a good night’s sleep.
There are different types of camping beds you can look into:
These can be self inflatable, inflated by an air pump or even by air compressor if you have a power source. They usually have an uneven top side to evenly distribute pressure. Some have inflatable pillows. You can buy a single size or even double thick air mattress for added clearance from the ground. Just make sure you pack a patch kit, as the downside to air beds is that they can be punctured fairly easily. You can find air beds with memory foam for added comfort, or buy a piece of foam to go over the top. Intex makes good quality air beds out of more durable materials.

Who hasn’t dreamed about sleeping under the stars strung up between two trees? Hammocks are comfortable, light to pack and keep you off the ground. While they don’t offer much for weather protection they’re great in the summer. Buy a mozzie net to go over top and you’ll be just fine out under the stars. You can find full fabric hammocks and net hammocks—full fabric is definitely more comfortable. Check out Eagles Nest Outfitters, inc. hammocks.
If you want something that is easy and light to pack and doesn’t use up a lot of tent space then a sleeping pad is a great choice. You can find self inflatable, or manually inflatable pads that are insulated or even foam filled for added insulation and warmth. Foam sleeping pads can be compressed somewhat, but you’ll mostly just roll it and pack it in a bag or keep it together with straps. Have a look at Wenzel Foam Mats.
