Camping beds - single, double camp beds (2022)

Buying Guide - Camping bed

Great for sleeping or for sunbathing, Outwell camp beds are comfortable, lightweight and fold down to a small packsize. You can use them inside or outdoors, which makes them ideal for the campsite, garden, festivals or beach.

What is a camp bed?

The term camp bed can mean different things depending on who you are talking to. It can simply refer to any camping bed for tent use. In other words, anything that you use to sleep on at the campsite. But because we have a wide range of beds for camping, we go a little bit further with our definition.

An Outwell camp bed is a folding bed with a breathable, material top and a metal (usually steel) frame, which has legs attached. They are very supportive and can be used inside the tent and outdoors.

What other types of beds for camping are there?

Airbeds/flocks – these soft, cosy and comfortable airbeds can be manually pumped up in minutes.

Self inflating mats – the quickest, easiest and lightest option, simply unroll these mats and they will self inflate to form a comfy air mattress.

Sleep systems - these ultra comfy camping mattresses combine the convenience and practicality of an airbed with the comfort and insulation of a foam topper and quilted padding.

Why choose a folding camp bed?

  • Good support and comfort
  • Flexible choice – you can use it for sleeping or sunbathing
  • Easy to use with no assembly required – it opens and unfolds in seconds

Maximise your comfort

Combine your camp bed with an airbed, self inflating mat or sleep system mattress for the ultimate night’s sleep. The camp bed acts as your supportive bed frame, plus you can use it as sun lounger during the day. While the airbed, self inflating mat or sleep system becomes your mattress, giving you enhanced comfort all night long. It’s what camping dreams are made of!

Every Outwell camp bed comes with elasticated corner straps to easily secure a mat to the bed. This keeps the mat in place so it doesn’t slip during the night.
