This disclosure policy applies to both this website ( and the accompanying YouTube channel (

This website is a personal blog written by me (Liz), and I share everything I know about camping, hiking, and backpacking, including products related to these hobby niches. My YouTube channel, Camping Guidance, has much of the same content produced on this blog, just in video format.

Please note that I may be compensated by advertisers, affiliate sales, and product sales, for the time and effort that goes into all my blog posts and videos that I’ve shared with you.

If you come across links in my blog posts and YouTube videos, these are affiliate links; so, I may earn a commission if you click through my links and purchase something. But don’t worry; I only ever recommend products that I use and love. And as you can probably tell from all my YouTube videos and custom pictures here on this blog – I personally buy, test and rigorously compare all products before ever making a recommendation.

In addition to these affiliate sales, you may see advertisements/ads on this site, and I receive compensation for these. If you do decide to purchase a course/product that I create and release on this website or my YouTube channel, I may earn money from those purchases as well.

Again, please let me stress that the money I receive from these avenues will not affect the quality of the content that I write and the opinions that I have. All opinions are my own after weeks and months of testing each individual product, and my years of camping and hiking experience.

Amazon Affiliate Disclosure Notice: It is important to also note that this Camping Guidance website ( and the accompanying Camping Guidance YouTube channel ( are both participants in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for us to earn fees by linking to and affiliated sites. So basically, as an Amazon Associate, I earn from qualifying purchases. It is also important to remember that prices change quickly on Amazon so you will need to confirm the price I share in each blog post and each YouTube video is the price you pay prior to finalizing your purchase. All prices that I mention (whether on this blog or my YouTube channel) are prices that I personally paid for each product (yes, I pay for my own products!), and may not be reflective of the current price on Amazon.
