The 9 Best Camp Chairs of 2024 Portable Camping Chairs Reviewed

The easily recognizable logo has been seen by nearly everyone at youth soccer tournaments or beach vacations in recent years. We were able to fix the problem, but a year of use has also led to scratches on the wheels and the plastic looking pretty shorn. One staffer who also owns the Mac Sports Heavy Duty Collapsible Folding All Terrain Utility Cart has also noticed scratches on the wheels.

The Chair One is rated to hold up to 320 pounds—more than any other lightweight chair we tested but the Moon Lence. The Chair One has a 600-denier polyester and mesh seat and aluminum legs, which are linked with shock cord (like what you’d find inside high-end tent poles). This chair’s big canopy provides ample sun protection at a campsite or sporting event and doubles as a backpack-strap-equipped carrying case. But after half a dozen excursions, we found—as we had with the Renetto Original Canopy Chair—that having a chair you can easily carry without a bag is preferable. In real-world conditions, you’re often packing up fast to try to get ahead of crowds or traffic. So you can easily misplace a carry sack on a dark night in a crowded field, especially if you’re in a large group or have a lot of stuff.

This quad folding chair features steel frame construction for durability and boasts a weight capacity of 250 pounds. It’s also designed with a built-in mesh cup holder to keep your drink or other important items close at hand. With this chair’s quad-folding design it doesn’t take up much space when folded and comes with a matching polyester carry bag for easy transportation. When you need comfortable and reliable seating choose the Ozark Trail Basic Quad Folding Outdoor Camp Chair. Comes with the same compact bag with a shoulder strap for carrying. Portable outdoor chairs are also helpful for anyone who doesn’t have the room or budget for permanent backyard furniture.

These portable chairs are great for camping, sporting events, and backyard BBQs. Plus, they fold up nicely and are compact with most styles including a convenient carrying case for easy transport and storage. The Coleman camping chair is big and durable, and of all the upright chairs that our panel of campers tested, it was the most comfortable.

When folded, the Mac Sports wagon’s dimensions are approximately 29½ by 20 by 8 inches. It comes with a small cover, which squeezes the accordion folds together tightly and makes the wagon easier to lift and carry with the included strap. The material is easy to wipe clean, and during our testing it didn’t grow any mildew when stored damp. Even after over a year of use, the wagon didn’t lose any ability to fold or unfold smoothly. It has the highest weight capacity and largest seat of any chair we tested. Out of all the chairs we tested, this chair’s capacity—800 pounds—is the highest (the next-highest weight limit is 500 pounds).

It scored high marks for having an attractive price point, as well as having fabric that could be easily removed for washing (which the other wagons did not have). But it didn’t turn or pull as smoothly on sand as the Mac Sports beach wagon, and its smaller wheels seemed to sink. While they don’t provide support, they do add a bit of padding, so your arms aren’t digging into the sides of the fabric. When you’re headed out to the sun and sand or just hanging out by the pool, along with that beach bag and towel, you’ll want a beach umbrella for a shady spot to lounge in. The umbrella has a 5.5-foot canopy and a two-piece steel pole that’s 81.6 inches long with a pointed end, that way you can push it more easily into sand, dirt, or grass.

And it comes with the same durable build of the standard Mac Sports wagon, but with twice the internal volume. Don’t let anything hold you back from making memories in the ozark trail screen house great outdoors with your pet.

Our testers consistently said the King Kong chair was the most heavy-duty-feeling model of all the chairs we tested. This Mac Sports wagon folds up to about the same size as the beach-wagon version of the Mac Sports. But because of how tightly this one folds, it seems more compact and easy to carry than any of the other wagons we tested.

The one complaint we have is that there is no vents in the fabric at the peak to release the build up of hot air under the canopy. The combination of their light weight and a fold-down frame makes folding wagons especially handy for everyday use, including getting in and out of a car or on and off public transportation. We’ve seen people using these wagons around the neighborhood and at the beach, as well as for gardening, outdoor concerts and movies, and sporting events. I even ran into a PTA parent who was using a wagon to schlep a used printer to school.

Like the regular Mac Sports wagon, the Heavy Duty model comes with a one-year warranty. Yeti’s Trailhead camping chair immediately stood out for its comfort. It features a flexible, durable fabric that’s spread tight against the frame, with a weight limit of 500 pounds—the highest of any folding chair we tested.
