Choosing a good tent is a critical part to enjoying camping, and in this blog, we'll help you find your new temporary home.
Kayak camping is the ultimate twist of adventure to spice up your camping game. Paddling to your camp site challenges you to pack light and efficiently while taking you off manmade trails and onto a nearby flowing river.
If you take the proper precautions for preparing your gear and planning out the trip, kayak camping can be one of the most rewarding experiences for any adventure seeker. Whether you're an avid paddler or and expert car camper, take your adventures to the next level and get a group of friends together for a kayak camping trip!

For those who don’t know, we offer four Go Play Days (paid workdays) a year for all employees to get outside and learn more about our products through personal experience. Of course, it doesn’t take much pushing to get ACK-ers outside. Here’s a blog by ACK San Marcos Store Associate documenting his first kayak camping trip (ever) with Diablo Paddlesports.
