Mountain Trails Base Camp Cot

Best Lightweight Camping Cot

Why people love it

  • Comfortable 
  • Easy to assemble 
  • Great price 


You will need some practice setting this up the first time; it takes effort so you don’t want to take it into the wild without a test. 


This camping cot weighs a mere 10 pounds, but can support up to 225 pounds. And, despite not being that high off the ground (less than 7”), you won’t get wet, even if the ground is soaking, as the frame doesn’t touch the canvas. That’s wonderfully impressive.

Besides that, you get a quality camping bed for a super reasonable price. There aren’t that many bells and whistles, but you can bet it is secure when it’s often recommended as a bed for large old dogs – that means it won’t flip or collapse (dogs never bother with the middle, do they?). And, if you need to do a bit of walking (but not too much), this is the bed you want with you.

Ease of assembly: Expect some issues when you first assemble this camping cot; slotting the legs into the sockets takes some effort at first, but it does get easier over time.
