The Ultimate Camping Shoes for the Campsite (2023)

When you’re at the campground, it’s time to relax and kick back. A good pair of camp shoes is one of the best things to help you transition from your regular life to camp life. The best shoes are comfortable, easy to take on and off, and will allow you to partake in all your camping trip activities. Below, we have a comprehensive list of the best camp shoes for a long day of fun activities.

Choosing the right pair of shoes involves looking for one ready for different weather conditions and ones that meet options for your different needs, including water shoes, easy on and off flip flops, durable for rough terrain, or ready for that long hike into the mountains. While you won’t find a do-it-all pair of shoes, you can focus on choices that provide a good mix of options for spending a few days at the campground.

The key feature of any camp shoe is one that is easy to put on and take off. The next most important feature is durability. We tried to focus on shoes that offer features like a rubber sole, are wearable in wet conditions, are good for short hikes, and are comfortable. When you get to the campsite, it’s time to get rid of your regular shoes and slip into a comfortable and good camp shoe ready for everyday wear.

The available options seem almost limitless. Selecting the right footwear is important to maximize your camping experience. When selecting the right pair of shoes, you need to look at the types of activities you plan to wear them for, the season, and the activity level.

In the summer, you may want something lightweight without insulation. Look for shoes with synthetic materials, a Vibram sole for wet surfaces and stream crossings, and a breathable mesh upper. However, when camping in cold conditions, the right shoes may offer insulation and traction for winter conditions while being easily taken off and put on.

The best option will depend on your particular needs. If you plan to hike in your shoes, choose ones that have laces or can be tightened. Camp shoes that offer ankle support and always good options. For moderate activities, I like to wear trail runners with adjustable straps or laces. On the other hand, if you’re planning to do some hardcore hiking, you may want to invest in a dedicated pair of hiking shoes geared towards providing the support you need for an outdoor adventure like exploring a hiking trail, waterproof for river crossings, and with durable material to handle extreme conditions.

While the following list won’t look at shoes designed for outdoor adventures like hiking long distances, rock scrabbling over sharp rocks, or extreme water sports, we recommend shoes that are good for an al around camping experience. We have options for both hot and cold weather and even a few that have the required support for longer hikes. We focus on shoes that are a great option for RV or car camping, comfortable at the end of the day, and capable of simple activities like day hikes or strolling around the campground. However, the bottom line when selecting a pair of shoes is to see if it covers enough of the activities you want to do while camping. The best thing about camping is getting away from regular life. So, whatever shoes you decide on, it’s nice to choose ones that will allow you to get out of your work footwear and into ones that will allow you to relax.
