Thinking of going camping this summer but don’t have any gear and don’t fancy investing too heavily in case you never go again? Off to a music festival this year but have never camped before? Read on, as I’ve found a range of budget camping gear that could be ideal for you.
Win A Festival Camping Package
Spent all of your money on a festival ticket and now you’re wondering how on earth you’ll afford camping gear on top? Never fear! We are giving away a 2 man dome tent, sleeping bag and camping mat! You’re welcome.
With the rise of glamping and camping pods, it’s now possible to experience camping without having to invest heavily in a tent or other camping gear, but even a modest camping pod will still cost upwards of £40 a night; considerably more than a straight forward tent pitch.
Let’s be honest, a £25 tent is never going to be amazing quality, able to withstand extreme elements or lots of use, but, a cheap tent is a great way to give camping a go, without having to invest too heavily. When it comes to festivals, no one wants to invest in a tent that ends up getting trashed (think drunk people constantly tripping over your guy ropes and falling against your tent), so for your average music festival, a cheap and cheerful tent makes a lot of sense.
