Coleman Kids Quad Chair

I mentioned this chair earlier, however I wanted to mention it again because it comes so highly recommended!

We always bring a shade tent, so having a canopy camping chair isn’t super important, but it might be nice if you’re camping near the lake or beach!

This is a GIANT shade which will be great for hot summer days! I love that the canopy is the actual bag to transport it in so that it won’t get lost (like 90% of mine are!)

A favorite camping highchair for babies!

The tray is solid so that food won’t all slide off, and it swings to the side to make taking your baby in and out really easy!

I also love the wide base of the legs becuase most campgrounds aren’t level, so in my expereince this has made the highchair way more stable than other camping highchairs!

 The go pod is nice and simple, and includes hooks to attach your baby’s favorite toys to!

Travel Booster Seats for Camper and RV use

If you have a small camper like we do, you know the value of space! While you could use the highchairs in the camper, most people only have a hallway to walk through, and don’t want to take up that space.

With a compact booster seat, you can put it on the bench of the dining area of your camper!

This was really important to us, since mornings are all about getting food cooked and everyone dressed.

With 3 under 3, that meant keeping the kids contained and out of the way while we got everything ready for the day!

Summer Infant Pop N Sit Portable Booster

I really like how small this folds up and that it comes with a nice carrying case! It could also be used outside on the campground since it seems fairly stable!

 This portable booster seat is perfect for RV bench seats or just a friend’s house!

Summer Infant Deluxe Fold Flat Booster Seat

This is the one we have in our little pull behind camper!

The tray is dishwasher safe, and the restraint system works well to keep babies in!

This booster seat fits perfect in our RV dinette area, and fold flat for easy storage when we don’t need it!

With the best camping gear for your baby and toddlers, your trip can be SO much easier!

I can’t even begin to explain how much we’ve learned that having the best outdoor gear when camping with your babies or toddlers is worth the money!

Babies that are secured and able to eat on their own (without you having to hold them the whole time) in their own special camping highchair is such a timesaver!

If you’re taking a toddler camping, it’s so important to make him feel included and excited about the trip! That’s why having his own camp chair is just the first step in the process of getting your kids to love camping!
