Updated: May 15

Camping is an exciting activity for people of all ages and backgrounds. It gives you the opportunity to spend time outdoors by participating in activities you wouldn't normally do, such as hiking, biking, camping, animal watching, and more. That being said, it can be overwhelming if you don't know.

If you're new to camping, you probably don't know what items to bring. You may have a few lying around, but a good chunk of them will require an upfront purchase, which can add up quickly.

An easy way to alleviate this problem is to purchase a camping pack. It's what it sounds like: a pack of different camping items like tents and sleeping bags. Purchasing a camping pack is easy, convenient, and often cheaper than buying each item separately, and is a great option for camping newbies who don't want to spend a lot of time researching what items to bring.

To make your search for camping tent bundles easier, I've put together a list of the best I've found, and hope it's helpful.

1. Extensive Tent Bundles

Hiking tent, sleeping bags, camping chairs, camping mats, lantern,  camping fan.
All the Gear you would need for a two-person hiking adventure

If you like to bring everything in one package, this is the kit for you.

It comes with a six-person tent, nine tent pegs, two sleeping bags, two pillows, two foam mattresses, two chairs, two waterproof bags, two towels, a gear loft, a media pocket, a flashlight, a portable fan, a backpack, and hand luggage.

This package comes with everything a first-time camper needs and includes high-quality items. The tent is easy to pitch, durable features a removable storm flap that weatherproofs when needed, and is spacious enough to accommodate a queen-size air mattress. The chairs are sturdy, all the other items are functional and do their job well, and the packaging is excellent value for money.

2. Medium Tent Bundle

If you're looking for a mid-range tent pack that's not too expensive or too flashy, the OZARK Trail Family Tent Pack is a great option.

It comes with a four-person tent, a rainfly, eight tent pegs, two sleeping bags, two pillows, two foam cushions, two chairs, two dry bags, a flashlight, an equipment attic, and a carry bag.

It comes with most of the necessities for a camping trip, is less expensive than more extensive options, and is made up of high-quality items. The tent is spacious (more than enough space for four people) and holds up very well in the rain, the lantern is compact and bright, the sleeping bags and mats are of good quality and for the price it really can't be beaten.

3. Minimalist Tent Bundle

Minimalist camping is growing in popularity, but has been around for decades

This outgoing tent set comes with only six items, so if you're looking for a simple tent pack with a large tent, this is the one for you.

It comes with a five-person tent and rain cover, two sleeping bags, two camping chairs, and a cooler. The tent is spacious and built with durable, easy-to-build fiberglass poles.

4. Extensive Hammock Bundle

For many reasons (comfort, versatility, packability, and more), I prefer camping with a hammock, so I thought I'd include some packs designed for them.

This Badass Hammock Set includes everything you need for hammock camping, unless you're camping in cold weather, then you'll need to buy a quilt. (this is what i use and i love it)

The backpack comes with 2,500lb nylon webbing, 2,500lb tree straps, 2,500lb carabiners, an extra-large waterproof rain cover, an extra-large grab, full-length mosquito net, and a 30-liter backpack to fit it all. . , weighs less than 6 pounds with everything packed.

It's honestly a great package. When I started hammock camping, all I bought was a hammock. I didn't know what other elements would be needed to make the network work well, and I was wrong. The first night I tried camping in the Texas summer without a net, I was eaten alive by mosquitoes and blindfolds. It wasn't a fun moment, but looking back on it, I laugh and take it as a great lesson.

5. Medium Hammock Bundle

If you want to try hammock camping but don't want to spend more than $100 on your first package, this is the set I recommend. It comes with almost as much as the Badass Hammock set, but it's a lot cheaper.

It includes a 350-pound nylon net, rain fly, built-in mosquito netting, two tree straps, two aluminum snap hooks, two stakes, two front lines, and a carry bag to carry everything. with everything packed.

The gear in this set isn't as high-quality as the gear in the Baddest Hammock Pack, but that's not surprising when you consider the steep price reduction. Also, if you're new to hammock camping and aren't sure whether you'll like it or not, or plan to only camp two or three times a year, buying a cheaper set is a good idea.
