Good quality walkie talkies with more power (higher) range than most

Arcshell Two-Way Radios
These aren't a name-brand, but they have good reviews and are a good budget option if you want rechargeable batteries and a headset

Good budget walkie talkies from a name brand. Barebones, but they'll do the job!

Why you need it

Walkie talkies can come in handy in a lot of ways when camping. If you're towing an RV, they can be helpful for the spotter to communicate with the driver. If your spouse or kids are out and about, it can also be a good way of keeping in touch when you may not have cell signal

Decisions to make

Walkie talkies have a range of anywhere from a few miles up to 50 miles. These ratings are based on optimal conditions, so realistically you'll get less than half of that.

Number of channels

There are 22 total 2-way radio channels you can use. You'll want to switch to a channel with no one else on it, which typically isn't an issue, but some walkie talkies have more usable channels than others

Battery type

Most walkie talkies come with rechargeable batteries, but some of the lower-end ones just use standard batteries like AA

Earpiece vs none

Some walkie talkies will come with a headset for hands-free use, which can be nice to have if driving
