This week, we scanned Amazon’s bestseller list for the best camping chairs, then pulled the best, most authoritative reviews for each.
Coleman Oversized Chair with Cooler ($28)
“These oversized chairs are amazing and so comfortable. Some really cool features of these chairs are a built-in cooler that can hold four cans; a mesh cup holder, which holds my water bottle; and side pockets, which are great for books, phones, and other small accessories like keys, wallets, and sunscreen. These chairs are well-cushioned and so comfortable to relax in.”
Kijaro Dual-Lock Portable Camping Chair ($33)
“These chairs are awesome! I think the coolest feature is the small locking mechanism that locks the chair into place when they are folded up. We’ve had them for about three weeks now, and my wife and I both love them. These are the perfect chairs for watching sporting events or car camping. They are very comfortable and easy to relax in. There is a shoulder strap built into the chair itself, which makes it easy to pick up and move to another spot without having to store it back in the bag.”
Alps Mountaineering Rendezvous Folding Camp Chair ($33)
“I bought two of these chairs for some car camping recently, and they are terrific. The chairs sit low to the ground and have a reclining angle. They are incredibly sturdy, and there is no need for a cup holder since you are so low to the ground. I have also used them out at a park, and they would also be perfect for the beach as well. If you are looking for a good beach, picnic, or car camping chair, these are very sturdy and will last quite a while. I always try to invest in good, solid gear, and these were a great buy.”
Moon Lence Camping Chair ($32)
“This chair is truly amazing. A nice small company that provides very friendly and responsive customer service. I am an active-duty infantry Marine who has taken this chair across many rugged places in the world, and I have put it to the test. Very comfortable to sit in, especially with all my gear on. Five-star product!”
TravelChair Folding Tripod Camp Stool ($14)
“I love this little stool! I can’t stand for long periods of time and in the past wouldn’t go to events or places where there was nowhere to sit. It’s lightweight and fairly easy to carry around. It’s the perfect little tripod seat to take along to places that don't have seating!”
Crazy Creek The Chair ($27)
“I am in love with Crazy Creek chairs and have had one since I first went camping when I was 12. These things are indestructible, travel well, and are great to bring along for camping or a picnic. It gives the perfect amount of back support.”
