Gifts Under $250

Pinnacle Camper Cooking Set

This cooking set will quickly become essential for any camping excursion. Its compact, nesting design can be configured for 2 or 4 people and includes pots, plates, bowls, mugs, a frying pan, and a sack/wash basin. While there are plenty of great restaurants and takeout options near Lake George Campsites, this would be great if you are the kind of person who likes to prepare their own food during camping trips.

Field Coffee Master

This a great gift for your camping enthusiast who is also a coffee enthusiast. Made from stainless steel, this elegant system works as either a percolator or a kettle with a pour-over cone and makes a cup of coffee so good, even baristas would approve. Our cozy cottages at Lake George Campsites come equipped with coffeemakers, but if you are planning to camp in a tent or RV, this would be a great option to prepare that morning cup of joe.

Sea to Summit Ultralight Air Mattress

This ultralight air mattress (and we mean ULTRA light – it weighs just over a pound) will provide a soft and comfortable sleeping surface and keep any camper cozy throughout the night. The multi-function valve allows for fast inflation in just a few breaths and one-way deflation makes packing it up quick and easy. This would come in handy for any type of camping at Lake George Campsites, whether it is tent camping, RV camping, or if you need some extra sleeping space in one of our cozy cottages.

Kelty Love Seat Camping Chair

This product is described as a “camping-friendly cuddle couch”. Featuring two insulated cupholders, adjustable armrests, a durable quilted design, and a padded storage tote, this gift is sure to be a hit for gatherings around the campfire. And no need to share – feel free to stretch out and enjoy the space all to yourself. While we have picnic tables spread out around our upstate NY campground for everyone to use, this would be great for some extra seating around the firepit!

Coleman RoadTrip® X-Cursion 2 Burner Propane Gas Portable Grill

This extremely portable grill features collapsible steel scissor legs, off-road wheels, push-button ignition, independently adjustable burners, interchangeable cooktops, and a removable grease pan. You will be the envy of the entire campground when you bring this bad boy out to cook a meal for your family! Plus it comes in five color options: green, orange, red, black, and blue. We don’t have any grills for public use at Lake George Campsites, so this will be a great thing to bring along for your camping trip so the family can enjoy some hot dogs and hamburgers around the campfire.
