Epic TAILGATING GEAR for Weekend Camping
With these tailgate party camping ideas, we’re sure you’ll be the talk of the parking lots and campgrounds!
So, don your favorite team jersey, fire up the grill, put out your camp chairs and cheer on your favorite teams!
Let’s get ready to rumble!!
Every tailgating event starts and ends at the grill. This perfect tailgating grill and griddle is perfect for any camping weekend or outdoor event. It’s an easy portable setup, almost no assembly required, and is ready to use in seconds.
Take it to the park for an afternoon cookout or take it into the woods for a long-term camping trip. The easily adjustable legs will be stable on uneven ground and make setup a breeze.
A good sturdy table to put all of your vittles on is a must. We highly recommend this portable, lightweight, folding table. It folds and is easy to carry so it’s perfect to store in your RV basement or stow behind the sofa or recliners.
This is a must for any camping gathering because you can also set up your outdoor kitchen with it. Don’t forget to pick up some tailgating plastic disposable table cloths! For easy cleanup, just throw all the party ware trash in the middle, gather and tie.
But if you’re really up for crazy tailgating adventure, you upgrade your party to this football beer pong table! It will be the center of attention at house parties, BBQs, tailgates, campsites, holiday weekends and more!
Hey, there’s nothing better than beer and brats at tailgate parties but those brews need to be cold, right? What better than a good cooler to keep them iced down that won’t break the bank like those expensive designer coolers?!
So, if we were to choose one, we’d get this cool ice box on wheels to keep all of our food and beverages ice cold. Oh, and its on wheels so it makes transporting it to and from your campsite easy peasy!
And, if you’re only wanting one of a more personal size or a grab and go ice box, check out this backpack cooler. It leaves your hands empty to carry your camp chairs or *gasp* your beer.
For you wine connoisseurs, how about a 2 wine bottle cooler that’s perfect for your red and white. It also comes with unbreakable wine cups too!
Yeah, we get it. When the team is running the clock down, it can be too much to sit. But between the commercials and game half-time, you’ll want a comfortable camp chair to rest up for the next play.
When we had our fifth wheel, we loved our awesome lumbar support camp chairs because they supported our backs while enjoying the campfires.
Speaking of downsizing RVs, check out how we also downsized our camping gear:
Outdoor Lawn Games
Now, if you’re like me who’s not into the game but you still love to either host the tailgate party or go to one, all-American outdoor games are a great distraction. One of the most popular is the good old fashioned cornhole backyard board game.
Oh, and remember your college days of playing beer pong? Well, you can take it to a higher level with Yard Pong! Let’s not forget a giant-size game of Yard Jenga! And last but not least, be the hit of the tailgating party with the Ladder Toss outdoor game.
Oh, and while your family and friends are enjoying the festivities, to keep the bugs away, you’ll want to have portable bug repellent lanterns on the tables and near the game players and sitting areas.
Portable Bluetooth Speaker
Its a no brainer that games need to be loud so you can hear what the officials are ruling and commentators are saying. So, check out our portable bluetooth speaker.
Don’t mistaken the size for inadequacy in sound. This little guy packs some punch in its small size. It pairs easily with your iPhone or Android smartphone.
Also, it’s lithium battery lets you enjoy up to 8 hours of play time. This fun bluetooth speaker is rechargeable with a USB outlet so you won’t miss a minute of the game.
But if you don’t want to spend your beer money on a pricy bluetooth speaker to listen to the game or your favorite tunes, you can opt for a more affordable smaller bluetooth speaker that clips to your belt loop!
Outdoor Dining Canopy Screen Tent
Even on the nicest of days or even nights, keeping your food tables under a screen room dining tent is a must. It will help keep the flies and vicious mosquitos out.
And speaking of those nasty blood sucking bugs, its a good idea to have some 100% deet insect repellent for you and your guests for those outdoor tailgating parties that linger on into the night.
Football Outdoor Rug
Hey, if you’re wanting to really impress your neighbors, get this cool football field outdoor rug. We admit, there’s nothing pretty about it. But it’s the perfect place to tackle who’s taken the last beer or brat.
Tailgating Theme Partyware
Oh, let’s not forget your football tailgating party supplies! Make sure you have enough for everyone attending and of course, some extras for your campsite neighbors.
