Dawn Bitz is leading a camping revolution: Tattered folding chairs and lukewarm hot dogs, begone! The former corporate executive founded Grasshaven Outdoor—an outdoor gear store with a flair for the luxurious—after her daughter was born in 2012. “Our goal is to get the entire family into the outdoors without leaving the comforts of home behind,” Bitz says. Her Boulder shop (Grasshaven also has pop-ups in 20 RV dealerships across the nation) stocks everything families need for creature-comfort car camping except, well, the kitchen sink. Here, we set the (picnic) table with some of Grasshaven’s chicest accessories.
The Setup: Colorful Bubble Cup in Green, $6.49; Pearl & Dart Glassware Acrylic Goblet, $10.99; Western Dinner Plate in Orange Paisley, $10.99; Traditional Louis White Cereal Bowl, $13.50; Hudson Aluminum Portable Picnic Table, $124.95; Bamboo Fork, Knife, and Spoon, $4 each; Vintage Range Teepee, $784.95–$1,199.95; Azure Low Bamboo Beach Camp Chair, $129.95; Log Head Rest, $19.95.
