Water containers are an essential item that all campers use. The issue is that many water containers aren’t smart with how they use their space.
That’s why we’ve decided a simple device like this needs to bring ingenuity to its function. The water containers we list are recommended by campers for their practicality as well as capacity. For instance, our pick of the bunch, the Kampa stroller offers major capacity for how easy it is to lug around. Definitely check it out if you need a large supply of water at base camp.

When going camping, bringing water is essential, but it can often be one of the bulkier and more inconvenient items to take, so purchasing an efficient water container is essential. The Kampa Ergonomic Water Stroller is ideal because you can simply roll it along the grass instead of needing to carry it; transporting up to 40 litres of water with minimum effort.
The container is made from a durable material, ensuring it is long-lasting and hardy against the elements, too. The filler hose and 60mm cap make it quick to refill and the taps on the side and top of the container make it easy to pour out the water, keeping you hydrated on your exciting camping trip.

I would recommend the Nalgene Stainless Bottle 38 oz. For 3 reasons:
1 – It fits within a steel cup that can be used to hold coffee or soup or Ramen while saving space in your pack.
2 – It’s durable
3 – You can boil water in it to purify water in an emergency situation

The great thing about WaterStorageCube’s Collapsible Water Container is that it’s BFA-free, comes with a spigot, and is leak-proof, light, and easy to carry, making it the best option for any traveler’s camping water needs!

No matter your beverage of choice, we all know camping is thirsty business. We also know cans get warm, bottles drop and break, and half-empty plastic water bottles seem to breed like rabbits. The Icy Bev Kooler 2.0 is the one solution to all three. The core’s double-wall keeps beer and soda cans cold for hours.
Drinking from bottles? Just add the top cone and keep your drink ice cold while also protecting it from drops. Having cold water, Kool-Aid or wine? Tighten the base and fill her up!
The top cone and silicone gaskets prevent leaks and beverages stay cold for hours. It can be used for coffee or tea, too! Both the cap and sizing disc have built-in openers for screw tops, and a silicone stopper is included to reseal bottles and stop drinks from going flat or spilling.

The AquaBrick container is, in my opinion, the most durable, compact and easy to handle water container out there. The opening is big enough to fit in your hand, so cleaning is not an issue. We use it regularly while out camping or hunting. You could always buy more: They can be stacked side-by-side and fit nicely in almost any space. The container is BPA free and Made in the USA.

We use this on every camping trip! It’s especially great for big groups or long trips. I love that we can set it on the table and have easy access to water whenever we need it. It’s also a great shape for easy packing if you’re tight on space.

For camping trips, I would personally recommend Coghlan’s Collapsible Water Container is a great option due to its lightweight and portability. It also comes with a handy spout and cap, and it’s easy to unscrew and refill. The BPA-free plastic container is also leak-proof and made out of high-grade polyethylene for extra sturdiness. The handles on both sides make it easier to lug it around when it’s at its full 5-gallon capacity.

This is the perfect bottle for camping. Epic Water Filters worked with Nalgene to create a trusted bottle, made in the US, with their most advanced US made Outdoor filter that removes close to 70 contaminants plus bacteria, viruses, and cysts. So if you’re near a stream or lake, or just not sure about the campsite’s tap, this bottle keeps pristine filtered water at your fingertips.

The Anntrue collapsible travel bottle is my go-to container when I travel or go camping with my family. It’s perfect because it’s small size is easy to transport but expand for 18 ounces of water, light-weight, holds its form, stable when full or empty, the handle allows for a carabiner, BPA free with food-grade silicone, leakproof, and twelve-month manufacturer warranty.
My entire family has a bottle in different colors (comes in six different colors.) It’s highly advised to wash the container in the top rack of a dishwasher before your first use. It will eliminate any smells or taste from the silicon coming from the manufacturer. When traveling, we attach our respective bottles to our backpacks. There are some camping containers that are bigger, but we prefer the Anntrue because it’s compact and it doesn’t weigh too much when it’s full of water.
