Food52's store Provisions just released a camping collection, filled with gear, games, and more for the modern camper. Here, we've paired products from the collection with rustic inspiration from our pages to prepare you for your next rustic excursion—or backyard gathering, for the less outdoorsy among us.
Yellow North Face tent atop a wooden deck

This weekend retreat, two and a half hours northwest of Tokyo, serves as a testing ground for its residents, who design outdoor clothing and gear. The shelter is constructed from locally harvested larch wood and removable fiberplastic walls and is crowned with two yellow dome tents used as year-round bedrooms.

Four huts flanking a central square deck make up this site, perfect for impromptu camping trips, in Newton, Massachusetts. The roofs of the huts are well suited for the winter: Snow slides off the steep pitches, and the tall, triangular spaces create shelters big enough to house multiple families.
