Who else offers car camping gear for rent?

In 2024, REI stores in Las Vegas discontinued their rental programs. Since Las Vegas REI rentals are no longer available, the only physical store in Las Vegas that still rents camping gear is Basecamp Outdoor Gear. They request that you book your rental through their website at least 24 hours prior to your pickup date. If you have a last-minute request, call them to check availability before going to their store.

Another physical location to rent camping gear in Las Vegas is the Outdoor Recreation Center at UNLV – that’s the University of Nevada campus in Las Vegas. You have to send them an email to request rental items and they will provide gear pickup and return information if they have the availability. Because this is a university and an email system, you should contact them at least 2 weeks in advance if you want to rent from them.

A handful of campervan rental companies in Las Vegas will provide additional camping gear with your van rental upon request. And a number of nationwide companies will ship rental gear to you. All of these will need at least 14 days notice in order to prepare the gear and ship it so it arrives on time at your requested destination.

Why rent car camping gear?

Renting camping gear in Las Vegas is a great option for those traveling to explore the national parks of the southwestern United States with limited luggage allowance on their flights. It’s also perfect for camping enthusiasts who would like to try new products prior to committing to a purchase. For Vegas locals, upon request, Basecamp Outdoor Gear will deliver a camping kit directly to you and show you how to set up all the gear.
