What is Camp Cot?
A camp bed is a narrow, lightweight bed, often made of sturdy cloth stretched over a folding frame.
Best Camp Cots In Kenya
Osage River Standard Folding Camping Cot
From setup to breakdown, the Osage River Standard Folding Camping Cot was a tester favorite, earning the highest scores in every one of our testing categories over our six-month testing period.
We discovered that the cot can easily be assembled by stretching out the canvas fabric over the metal frame that folds out, and it simply folds back down when the time comes. It’s super convenient and easy to get in and out of its storage bag and it takes less than a minute to set up and fold up.
Runner-upL.L.Bean Easy Cot
L.L.Bean’s Easy Cot was super easy to set up, requiring the same low effort as unfolding a camping chair or table. When the cot is unfolded, we think there’s plenty of room for one person thanks to the generous 79-inch length.
This was one of the biggest camping cots we tested, so even when it’s folded up, it takes up a little more space than we wish, but it still fits nicely in storage closets in an apartment. The canvas material is especially taut and the frame is sturdy, and we got a good night of sleep while laying on it with just a blanket.
Helinox Lite Camp Cot
If you have some wiggle room in your camping cot budget, the Helinox Lite Cot is worth the splurge thanks to its ultra-lightweight and comfortable design. Helinox is known for its lightweight outdoor gear, and we found that they deliver on expectations with this 2-pound cot.
Although the width is on the smaller side at 23.5 inches, we loved that two cots could easily fit in a smaller tent if needed. The cot doesn’t weigh much more than backpacking pads and definitely weighs less than some more plush air mattresses. The long thin design of it when it’s in its carrying case is ideal for sliding long ways into a backpacking backpack.
Are camp cots worth it?
All in all, they’re a significant upgrade over most other options. Another way that camping cots keep you comfortable is by keeping you cool in warm weather and warm in cold weather.
Since they’re elevated off the ground, they won’t obstruct airflow, which will improve circulation when your vents are open.
How long can a baby sleep in a camp cot?

How long do cots last?
Depending on the child, cots can last your little one between 2-3 years.
