Best Rocking Camping Chairs – 2022

What could be better than sitting on your front porch rocking away a lazy afternoon? Imagine doing the same thing ad your campsite! With these rocking campaign chairs, you’ll be ensured hours of comfortable campsite relaxation. 

Anyone with a few camping trips under their belt knows the struggle of finding a good setting option. Many campsites come equipped with a picnic table, but picnic tables are only comfortable for the duration of a nice meal. Folding camp chairs have been popular for quite some time but while they mark a huge improvement over the picnic table, after an hour or so, they start to cramp your style. 

The solution to the comfortable camp chair dilemma lies in the rocking camping chair. These folding collapsible rocking chairs represent an amazing compromise. With padded seats, lumbar support, drink holders, and even one option with a sunshade, these chairs are the height of campground comfort. And while you won’t be bringing any of these chairs on a backpacking trip (they are a bit heavy) they do collapse down to fit nicely in the trunk of your car, or back of a truck. 

Here are a few of our favorite rocking camp chairs.
