What is Hammock Camping

Hammock camping is a lot like tent camping. You still have to bring your food and cooking tools. The only real difference is that you will be bringing a hammock instead of camping tents for your sleeping arrangements.

This can make a big difference when it comes to hiking to your camping site. A hammock will generally weigh a lot less than even the best camping tents. It will also take up a lot less room.

Based on that alone, if hammock camping works, it is a far superior option compared to bringing a bulky tent.

On top of that, hammocks are a lot easier to set up than tents. That means that you will also save time and effort setting them up. A great camping hammock can create a better camping experience.

Common Misconceptions about Hammock Camping

1. It's Unsafe

Some people think of hammocks as flimsy things. To be frank, the technology necessary to create sturdy hammocks has been around for a long time. If you want a solid hammock, it is as simple as buying a quality item.

2. It Makes It Diffcult To Sleep

Between the warmth and comfort that hammocks can provide, they can often help you to get better sleep than you would in a tent on the ground. It can be incredibly soothing to go to sleep while enjoying the beautiful night sky. And they will save you a lot of stress because of how easy they are to transport and set up.

3. Hammocks Are Complicated To Set Up  

Setting up hammocks is actually far simpler than setting up tents. There are far fewer pieces to get in the right place. That also means that there are fewer pieces that can end up breaking and requiring replacement.

Setting up a hammock can be as simple as finding a couple of ropes around a couple of trees and attaching the ropes to holders on the hammock.

4. Hammocks Have A Limited Weight Capacity

If you are worried about hammock weight capacity,  don't worry, LOVE STORY's camping hammock has a maximum capacity of 500 lbs.

Install a Hammock Camping

When you get to your campsite, do a site check and investigate your area for where the trees are. You’re looking for a good location for your hammock, so watch for shade, sunlight, and clear ground beneath.

You need sturdy trees that will hold your weight. Don’t use saplings or dead trees; these will likely break under any sort of weight, no matter how light you might be.

Once you've selected a fully sturdy tree, wrap the tree strap around the tree, pass the strap through the large loop; Then according to your favored distance, wrap many times as you needed, and pull tightly; Finally unfold the hammock,and buckle the carabiner into the suitable loop of the strap.

I love camping, but I have been using tents before and feel like I could buy a camping hammock and try it out.

Andrea Logan,

It’s in very good quality and quite easy to use. This’ll be one of my favorite items for this summer.

Michelle Nua,

Fabric is soft and adjustable strap is really useful. I use this with cats . They can’t easily jump out like they can if they are just in your arms.


It was so easy to set up and I cam take it down and move it to different spots in my yard!

Irene Harrell,

I liked too much . Easy to use .

Marta Valle,

Used this hammock for a seven day camping trip. This was a 2 minute set up, and had some deep and refreshing sleeping.

Crissy Fowler,

great hiking small package


Awesome hammock. Netting is breathable. Dries fast after rain.

Karis Kirchgest,

It is perfect it fits my bike and I don’t need to pack a tent or sleeping mat.

Michelle Nguyen,

I am a bigger person, 6’1" 250lbs, but am able to sit comfortably in the hammock. Really easy to set up.


Love it. I am able to use this for lightweight camping. As long as I have two trees I ditch the tent pad and bag. It’s quite comfortable also. The net gives you that sense of peace and security.

Stefani Belew,

Great light weight hammock. Comes with everything you would need.

Sarah Hope,

I loved this thing!!! It setup so easily and held my weight so well(I’m a bigger person). It was my first time hammock camping and it really delivered. I was so comfortable in it and had plenty of room to keep my shoes near me and my flashlight without it interrupting my sleep. The multi loop straps worked so well and it was a breeze to pack up.

Charlene Jones,

Got this as a gift for my friend and he loves it. He says that it relieves the stress from his back and the hammock itself is pretty sturdy. The net is perfect for when the bugs come out. It’s over all relaxing. I ended up getting one for myself and it is pretty amazing.

Hanna Look,

I’m 6’2 250 lbs. I bought an 2 person Hammock. And it is to small. So I gave it to my son.

Allison K,

My boyfriend LOVES this! I bought it for him as a gift and he has been using it everyday as the weather has started to cool down! 100% recommend!
