The Best Labor Day Sales on Camping Gear

Unless you’re a hardcore outdoorsman, you probably do the bulk of your camping during the summer months.

With summer coming to a close, your camping days may be numbered, but that just means it’s time stock up for next summer. These Labor Day sales from REI, Backcountry, and Walmart have all of the savings you need to get your gear on.
