Backpackers: The Backyard Camping Guide for Quarantine

Backyard camping is all the rage in the new normal. For us outdoor folk, early May is the time we stretch our hiking legs, lay out the gear, and get camping, backpacking, or climbing trips on the books.

But this May is unlike any other. The National Parks are mostly closed, many local trails are closed, and the general advice is to stay inside. Thus, backyard camping. Those outdoor folk who are lucky enough to have a span of yard to call home are spending gratuitous amounts of time in it — and it’s just about time for a camp out.

Break out the campfire, grill, and tent. Bring the family, the dog, and some games. Sleep under the stars, because it’s about damn time.

The following is a list of products will make that backyard camping “trip” all the more fun, and give you some much-needed relief. Plus, they continue to up your outdate game after the pandemic has faded into history.

Depending on where you travel, you may want to pack bug spray, too. In places like Florida and North Carolina, summers get buggy, and you’ll be happy to have packed a spray on nights when you want to sit on the porch or dine outdoors.
