Wirecutter: Create Your Own Backyard Campground
Being stuck at home doesn’t mean you can’t have an adventure, especially if you’re fortunate enough to have some outdoor space. Unlike the appeal of a long-distance hiking trip—which relies, of course, on seeing new landscapes—the magic of backyard camping, especially with children, is creating a fantasy in an otherwise familiar environment. It’s theater that you invent for yourself. And as with all good theater, no matter how minimal, the illusion is sustained in the details.
After combing through all of Wirecutter’s recommendations for camping gear, we’ve come up with a collection of equipment and ideas for building a perfect backyard camping scenario without spending a fortune. However, all our picks are versatile enough that you can one day use them on family camping trips in the wider outdoors.
