Are you primitive camping where no hook ups are available?

Well, the one I've found to be the most comfortable is this one. But best for me and cheap are relative to the individual. Sleeping on the ground isn't an option for me anymore, if I want to walk the next day.

That is a good cot. I've slept in one. Any of the army style cots are pretty good and sit higher. I would suggest a 36". I have a 28". It is good but needs some room.

We slept on the ground last year. Rough doesn't describe it. Took a few days for my back to get back to "normal". I don't mind paying a little more of its worth it

Don't know how to post the link but Bass Pro has a big outdoorsman cot, great reviews, $100. My brother bought one years ago and loved it.

I would rather have an air mattress any day. You will feel the frame on a cot. Air mattresses are super comfortable and inexpensive.

Twin air mattress is about $20
Battery powered inflater is maybe $15?

Very comfy to me
And you can adjust the amount of air for softer or firmer

Twin is good for one person. Bigger means you hit the ground in the middle without a higher PSI

Cabela's has some good options. Byer's of Maine also makes good cots. Personally, I prefer a foam pad to a cot, especially if it's cold.
