We have a wide variety of coolers, water bottles and lunch coolers from top brands like Igloo, Yeti and Coleman. Choose from our larger, hard-sided coolers for fishing and hunting trips with enough space for game and fish. Rolling coolers are great for tailgates, and soft-sided carry bags work well on-the-go or at the beach. They come with sufficient insulation to keep things cold and fresh throughout the day.
Hikers and campers will appreciate the variety of pre-packaged camping food available at DICK'S Sporting Goods. Featuring top brands such as Backpacker's Pantry and Mountain House, choose from an assortment of easy-to-prepare options for breakfast, lunch, dinner and dessert.
Choosing what to eat and how to prepare it is an important part of planning your next camping trip. Pre-packaged camping foods require little in the way of preparation, at most needing only a campfire, water and a container for boiling, making them an ideal choice for hikers and backpackers.
Campers staying at an established campsite will want to consider camp stoves, pots and pans, roasting forks and more to create the perfect camp kitchen.
Portable gas grills fit easily in the back of your vehicle, are lightweight and set up with ease. Select from a range of accessories to round out your gear, whether you’re camping, barbecuing at the lake or tailgating before the big game.
There is a big difference between the cooking needs of a hiker and a camper. As a hiker, your focus should be on compact, lightweight and useful gear that is easy to carry over long distances. Consider lightweight backpacking stoves, nesting meal kits and pre-packaged, dehydrated meals to keep your pack weight down.
If you are more focused on camping than hiking, your options open up to grills, large coolers and an array of pots, pans and cookware. Consider your space and packing room when purchasing a grill. DICK'S carries a variety of grills that have stands that are easily collapsible. However, tabletop grills without stands are a fantastic option if packing space is limited.
