This weekend some friends organized a camping trip and while we could only make it for 1 night of the weekend, it was a great time. I can’t say enough good things about the campground (except for the fact that it is already booked solid for the rest of the weekends this summer!)
It was great to get out of the city, enjoy some fresh air (despite the rain!) and put our awesome camping gear to use.
Here are our recommendations for those of you looking to purchase som
e gear. Although after reading this list, I might be forced to rename this post “Glamping“. We certainly weren’t “roughing” it.
Sleeping Bags: Kelty Cosmic Zero Degree Down Sleeping Bag
These kept Matt and I toast warm!
Pillows: Fillo™ Luxury by Nemo*
Sleeping Pads: Tuo Standard by Nemo*
We also had a “mattress” that you put the pads into but I can’t find that online
Grill: Coleman Perfectflow Inststart Portable Grill
Perfect for hamburgers!
Cookware Set: GSI Outdoors Pinnacle Camper Cookset
We didn’t use this because our friends had dishes but it is so easy to pack
*A good friend of my works for an incredible company, Nemo, which is up and coming (or maybe already here?) in the camping world. He gave us a ton of awesome stuff for our wedding AND the company donated a bunch of sample sleeping bags after Sandy to one of our groups doing relief work in the Rockaways. I definitely encourage anyone looking for innovative camping products to visit their website.
