Curious where everyone gets their camping gear? Around here we have walmart, kmart etc.. which have various camping items.

We also have bass pro, Sports Authority, Sportsmans Warehouse, and some mom and pop outdoor stores. Where is your favorite place for buying camping stuff?

Typically I find a lot of what we need at wally world. If not, I will hit up Bass Pro or Camping World on the net. If walmart has it, you can bet it will be cheaper :)

Most everything I have has been from walmart and camping world as well. Walmart has a pretty good selection of basic needs, but for those who have a camper, probably shop elsewhere. but for basic outdoor camping stuff, they have a lot.

Yep, Walmart tends to be the cheapest place. If they had a bigger selection of stuff, they would put the others out of business. We dont have a camping world store close to where we live, but I have been to one in Minnesota. Nice place, fun to look around.

I guess thats the same thing as a Super Target, thats what I have seen. Never heard it called a greatland target. I didnt realize target had camping gear, never would have thought it, since they are not really a sporty kind of place. Are there prices good?

Target doesn't carry much, some tents, sleeping bags, lanterns, and other small accessories. Their prices seem on par with Walmart.

the greatland targets are similar to the super target without the food. i guess they carry twice the amount of stuff a normal target is. my wife said sporting goods is pretty big at a greatland.
I miss spoked before, i thought the greatland was the store with food, not super target. my memory is not what it use to be:smack-head:

That is interesting, I have never heard of a greatland store. My wife is from Minnesota, the Target capital, I will have to ask her about it. So I guess they have 3 different kinds of stores, but we only have 2 of them here in TN

Absolutely. I actually have mainly bought fishing and hunting items from them, but frequent the website and catalog often. Do you buy a lot of your camping items there?

Mostly shopping (as opposed to buying)...enjoyed the one in Kearney, Nebraska on the way to see family last year.
Then there's LL Bean.:thumbup1:
Nothing beats WalMart pricing (china) tho. Sigh:dead:

Never been to LL Bean, but have looked through some of their magazines.

I have been to Cabelas store, and Gander Mountain. They are fun to go look around, lots to look at. But they are expensive, although more quality of camping gear too.

I think we have bought stuff from just about everywhere! We have bought stuff from Target (my personal fav), Walmart, Mc Sports, Dunham's, Gander Mountain and General RV. We also get quite a bit of stuff at Canadian Tire (on the Canadian side of course :thumbup1:)!
