A camping bed is similar to a cot, but usually sits just a little lower. It folds up for easy transportation and fits inside most tents. These beds are good for those who find sleeping on the ground unbearable.
On hot nights a camping bed can help a camper stay cool, allowing air to circulate under the body. Bringing the sleeping surface off the ground can also prevent pests such as insects and snakes from joining the camper in the bed. Those who are afraid of critters will get better rest on a camping bed.
Older campers or those with back issues will appreciate not having to get up and down from the ground. The supportive canvas cradles the body better than a sleeping pad on the ground. A camping bed will make sleeping outdoors much more enjoyable and gives those who normally can’t camp comfortably a chance to enjoy the experience as well.
