You won't be planting a garden on your next camping trip, but a shovel can definitely come in handy - dig up that one rock that's in your way of the perfect spot to pitch your tent; have close by to put out your camp fire; smooth out some snow when winter camping; or help get your vehicle out of a jam if you are off road. And if you got stuck with latrine duties, here you go.
This shovel we rent is the Gorge model from Gerber - well made to handle most camping duties. Just around 9" in storage mode, it extends to over 16" in use. Weighs under 2 pounds, and the handle end is designed to be used as a hammer if needed.
This rental pretty much just does shovel things, but we have more photos and instructions available
to make sure you know what you are renting.
We also have other handy camping tools you can rent, including a camp saw
, and a mallet
