Spring Camping & Kohl’s Camp Guide
*This post is sponsored by Kohl’s, all thoughts and reviews are ours.*
It’s Spring – April is here and the days are getting longer – and here in the PNW we have been having record-breaking heat. So that means….camping season is just around the corner! With 3 kids, car camping & cabin camping has become something we really like. We get out, enjoy the fresh air, and spend time as a family. With no outside interferences.
But I won’t lie…it’s the gear I love. Backpacking means I have to go light, and carry as little as possible. When we car camp, I can take whatever I feel like. The good stuff. The big items. There is little reason to sit on wet, moss-covered picnic tables when you could live it up a bit. Your meals will thank you 😉
Kohl’s and Coleman sent us some very awesome pieces recently to check out – and one winner will get to have some fun as well! We are hosting a giveaway, see the end of the post for the entry form. If you love Kohl’s (I do! They have great outdoor and workout clothing), you will want to check out their Camping & Outdoor Gear section.
I love 2 burner stoves. If you have a family, or a large crowd, they get you going quickly. Our old one was serviceable, but when I saw the Coleman FyreSergeant HyperFlame 3-in-1 Propane Camp Stove, I was taken back. It has amazingly stable pot supports. It sheds wind. But it also can work as a grill. And you can do half/half (one side grill, the other for cooking. It’s quick to change out.
The Coleman Large Pack-Away Camp Kitchen. I had dreamed about this for years. The thought of setting up camp on the Olympic Coast for a week, and prepping breakfast on this sounds amazing. It has hooks for tools, massive work space, a garbage bag holder (or a place to air dry dishes) a storage area under for light items, cubbies for more items – and a rack for the stove. And it all packs up in a tiny bundle, which can fit into even subcompact cars.
Yes, a sink. And all that counter space…..just tuck a thin cutting board in and you will prepping veggie kabob like a pro.
Rugged 6-Piece Family Cookset. If you have ever cooked for a large family or group, you know even the “large” camp pot sets are rarely large enough. My biggest pot was a 3 Liter, so this set blew me away. A 8 quart cookpot? I can make pasta for everyone. With room to spare. And it fits on camp stoves perfectly. Well designed, with large handles, and a lid that drains. The matching 12″ frying pan shares the large lid. It also has a 5 quart saucepan with matching lid, and an interchangeable handle. You can cook the pasta, and make the sauce, all at once!
The Coleman Pack-Away Compact Table. This one was a winner. Before, we would sometimes take our table we have, that folds down. But it’s bulky, and more so, very heavy. This compact table is a snap to put together, and breaks down to carry in a bag smaller than most camp chairs. It sits at the height perfect for those camp chairs as well, or for children roaming around. A place to set down plates, drinks, or even to play cards on at night – it supports up to 300 pounds! And it will fit in the smallest of cars, taking up a tiny spot, and weighs under 9 pounds.
