Looking for a camping hammock? There are literally thousands of options. It’s difficult to really know where to start. In this post, we’ve scoured through some camping hammock reviews and come up with a list of the best camping hammocks on Amazon.
These are all meant for hammock camping, so they aren’t just your regular old hammocks. Most are made of sturdy, lightweight materials so that they can be used for backpacking, where weight and durability is king. A few are doubles, so watch for that. All but the ENO come with hanging kits.
Without further ado; here are ten camping hammocks we think you should consider:
Made of 210T Ripstop nylon (the same material parachutes are made of), the SingleOwl (1 person) is 9ft long by 4 1/2 ft wide, weighs 16 oz. and packs down to about the size of a grapefruit. The DoubleOwl (2 people) is 10ft long by 6 1/2 ft wide, weighs only 26 oz. and is about the size of an eggplant. Comes with decent quality rigging system. I’m particularly impressed that this hammock has a perfect reviews core through 543 reviews on Amazon. It’s amazing that so many people are happy with this hammock!
Made of 210T nylon and holding up to 500 lbs, this double hammock also has perfect review scores through 541 reviews on Amazon. Includes a double camping hammock 118”(Long) x 78”(Wide), two ropes(each 137”(Long)), two tree friendly straps (each 24”(Long) x 2”(Wide)) and two solid steel carabiners. It also has a 100% money back guarantee.
TNH was founded by founded by two environmental scientists and they rave about how they hold themselves to higher product quality standards than many of their competitors. The reflective straps that come with this hammock seem really good. The hammock is 10 ft by 6.6 ft and the straps are each 9 ft long.
Holds up to 400 lbs. Comes with two 10 foot ropes and hanging kits. Aluminum no-nick carabiners. The stuff sack is attached to the hammock, so you won’t lose it. This hammock is really a single, as there just isn’t enough room in there for two people, even if it can hold the weight. Supposedly, the straps don’t stretch, which some people complain about with other hammock systems. Typically, the straps for most hammocks will stretch a bit when they are new, but then get to a point where they don’t stretch any further.

Using the “Grizzly suspension system,” this hammock is supposedly easier to setup and lets you spend more time enjoying the outdoors. This double is 10 by 6.5 feet, so a bit larger than some other camping hammocks. It’s constructed with 70D parachute ripstop nylon and is non-stretch. The bag is attached to the hammock, so you won’t loss it. The whole thing weighs in at 2 lbs 3 oz.
ENO is really the brand that is widely considered the best camping hammock brand. I’ve never really been sure what the difference is between their products and some other brands, as they seem similar to me. ENO is just a bit more expensive for the same thing, and they typically don’t sell the straps with the bags. Still, it’s a good camping hammock and makes the list. If brand is important to you, this is probably the brand you want.
