Camping high chairs are perfect for the park, campsite, and many more family-friendly outdoor venues.
The inventory of baby-friendly camping products is truly amazing: Parents can now take babies and toddlers hiking and mountain biking, thanks to baby carriers and shotgun bike backseats. Kids can appreciate outdoor adventures early in life and all of these inventions make it easy for parents to explore the outdoors with their little ones.
Another baby product parents are raving about these days are camping high chairs. These travel chairs are lightweight and easy to fold and store away when not in use. Camping high chairs are worth investing in for numerous reasons: they're more durable than traditional high chairs, so they'll hold up with lots of use in RVs or campgrounds, as they're actually made for the outdoors. They fold up easily, making them a great pick for road trips. Finally, they're perfect for securing your baby when you're eating outdoors — which can be a struggle in itself. With all that in mind, a portable, lightweight highchair can be a life-saver. Plus, it gives parents a chance to sit down and enjoy their food. Just place baby's favorite snacks on the built-in trays so they can also enjoy mealtime. You'll get many uses of these chairs before your baby or toddler outgrows them. They do have weight limits, usually up to about 40 pounds, so keep that in mind as you shop. See our top picks below:
1. Our Top Pick
ciao! baby Portable High Chair for Babies and Toddlers
The Ciao baby foldable high chair is the best travel high chair we found — probably because it was invented by two moms, and they know what their kids need. The slim chair doesn't require assembly, which is great for on-the-go camping — and we chose it as our top pick because it has everything your little one needs to enjoy their meals. The built-in feeding tray and cup holder make this good for babies and for toddlers, so you'll be able to use it for a long time. The chair is easy to clean: just wipe down the clear vinyl tray with a wet cloth. Most importantly, the folding chair is safe. There's a 5-point safety harness, and it meets the US American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM), the EU European high chair safety standards, and all Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act (CPSIA) guidelines. This chair has a weight capacity of 35 pounds. When not in use, fold the chair and place it in the convenient carrying bag, and it comes in a number of fun colors.
Baby Delight Go with Me Venture Chair
Here's our best camping highchair pick for the beach, camping trips, or sunny days at the park — because the canopy helps add some sun protection to your chair and will help keep your baby away from the sun's harmful rays. The five-point harness will keep your babies both safe and comfortable, and the portable booster seat has a removable tray and built-in cup holder to hold a drink and snacks. The booster chair comes with a carry bag for easy transportation, and is available in five different colors. We also love this because it's weight limit is 75 pounds, meaning you will have this for a long time. Reviewers rave about how comfortable it is — and note they have had it for many years, too.
hiccapop Omniboost Travel Booster Seat with Tray
This affordable booster seat will come in handy for outdoor use at the beach or picnic. It sits low on the ground, making it easy to stay close to your baby if you're relaxing on your picnic blanket or beach towel. Keep it in the camper, Grandma's house, or even the car for a quick meal at a rest stop. We love that there's a machine-washable cover, and that the removable swivel tray is dishwasher-safe. We also like the built-in storage pocket: Use it for bibs, spoons, and whatever the baby needs for snackin'. Your little one will feel safe in it, too. It has tip-free stability and will distribute weight evenly on sand and grass. Choose between three colors.
