When you’re packing for a camping trip, there are a few things you don’t want to forget: your tent, sleeping bag, mosquito repellent and a camping gazebo. There are many reasons why camping gazebos are so high on the list for what to bring.
For starters, it’s the perfect coverage for any weather and a great place to keep all of your extra equipment dry in the event of a rainy afternoon. There are also many different kinds of camping gazebos on the market, created for packing efficiency. Let’s take a look at the following types to see which will be the best camping gazebo to suit your next trip.
A traditional portable outdoor gazebo is an excellent start for optimising your camping experience. These have extendable stick pillars that can retract in size for easy storage, and the roof is made of either tarp or waterproof sailcloth fabric that can fold up without issue. Depending on what size your camping needs require, you can buy outdoor gazebos in measurements that fit small or large square and rectangular shapes. These shelters come in a range of heights that make for a comfortable environment for even the tallest campers.
Pop up gazebo
The pop up gazebo (also known as a pop up marquee) is as simple and straightforward as its name. This portable covering is wholly connected; therefore, it requires minimal setup time, and you won’t lose any essential separate parts along the way. Like the outdoor gazebo, its poles also retract to allow for easy storage and portability. Despite its pop up nature, it isn’t limited to square shapes, allowing you to choose any rectangular measurements you require. Even the kids can set up this one.
If you like attachments, you’re going to have fun with a gazebo hub. This is a gazebo designed to connect to other pieces that you might want for your camping experience. You can connect tents for group camping situations, use extra gazebos for more shade space, or even just as a standalone marquee with connected mosquito nets to keep you safe from creepy crawlies. Another notable advantage to this gazebo is that, depending on the measurements, it can join onto camper trailers for those with a more permanent camping setup.
