Best Folding Cots for Camping in 2020


If you have plans of camping in the new camping season, you might want to see our list with best folding cots for camping, all very popular Amazon best-selling items. Please keep reading.

The term folding cot for camping implies at least two very different types:

  • Cots that remain relatively large in two dimensions yet thin so you can store them in narrow spaces. This type normally requires no assembly and when you need it, it is ready in seconds, just unfold it.
  • Cots that collapse so that they remain long in one dimension. These normally come with a carry bag that looks like a long and elongated tube, usually with a strap so you can carry it attached to the shoulder. This type includes also military-style camping cots that need a simple assembly. This implies just adding two end bars, the rest of the frame and the bed is preattached to each other.

So both types of these cots are in the list. Some of them include padding or a mattress, but most of them come without it. You will see some particularly strong examples with a weight capacity of up to 600 pounds (272 kg). But these cots are different from collapsible camping cots that always need some assembly.

These are all typical cots for car camping, but the list includes also some very light and packable models that can be carried attached to the pack. Cots are particularly suitable for tall cabin style family camping tents. Note that they normally have feet caps for the floor protection, but you might want to add some extra in the case of the soft ground under the tent.

Some of the cots are true evergreen items that have been on the market for a decade or so, tried and tested, those that have stood the test of time. Here is one which is among the best-known camping cots on the market suitable even for the heaviest users, please have a look:

The list below includes Amazon best-selling and top-rated camping cots with numerous reports by customers. The prices are updated daily and the rating is always fresh and accurate.

Note that this is a dynamic list and if you bookmark this text you will see some new cots appearing occasionally, this depends on the situation on Amazon and on what is becoming best-seller there.

So here is our list with the best rated camping cots, please have a look:
