Full Disclosure: Yours Truly is an ultralight backpacker. But Yours Truly also enjoys the odd car-camping trip. Here are 5 glamping toys and tools worth sharing.

BioLite FirePit

One of the best parts of camping is the smell of woodsmoke, right? Sometimes.

Aliens from outer space might view the human campfire dance with much confusion: We lean back, we lean forward, we duck and weave, we straight-up get out of our chairs to get out of the damn smoke so we can finish our damn story.

Enter the BioLite FirePit. Keeps the smoke at a minimum, phone controllable, and powers other devices like camp lights, etc.

Sibley Bell Tent

The Sibley Bell Tent from CanvasCamp is so darn romantic. Even if your significant other doesn’t like camping (or is a hardcore minimalist backpacker), they can’t not like getting cozy in a big, roomy teepee. Imagine how many points you’d get if you had this set up with hanging lanterns and blankets for your anniversary. You’re welcome.

Fun for the whole family. Or for making one.

Or for being an extremely comfortable bachelor/bachelorette.

Stansport enamelware somehow feels old-school and new-school at the same time. You can imagine your great grandpa eating off one of these plates, and they’re still the smartest, lightest, and most durable solution for camp cuisine.

Again, this is what your great grandpa used and you should, too. Your friends will forever see you differently after you pull your dutch oven out of the ashes, open the lid, and reveal fluffy, moist biscuits ready to dip in bacon grease.
