The snow is already settling in some parts of the country. However, most can still head for a well-equipped camping trip before the end of the foliage season and the start of Black Friday — its own way of roughing it — with these outdoor recreation listings on Amazon.

Make your way to the lake before it gets too cold for some water kayaking adventures. This ADVANCED ELEMENTS StraitEdge2 pro inflatable kayak is available for $798.30, 33% off the regular price of $1,199. The lightweight two-seater kayak features drop-stitch technology in the bottom for tracking, rigidity and hull speed. And it’s easy to use: just unfold, inflate, and attach the seats. Velcro-fastening paddle holders keep them from coming loose from you, and adjustable, padded lumbar seats ensure you can paddle comfortably all day long. Just pack it in the included backpack when you’re not using it anymore.

When you’re done with your waterfront promenade, settle into this ALPS Mountaineering Camp Creek 4-Person Tent, priced at $166.90, 44% off $299.99. A high center and straight sides accommodate more cots and allow you to stand up in the tent.

When you’re retired from camping for the season, get ready to cook turkey alfresco with this $80 outdoor frying kit — half the price of $149.28 — so your bird gets extra crispy this Thanksgiving becomes.

Here are other camping items on sale, including backpacks, flashlights, folding chairs and more. Grab ’em before they’re gone like the leaves on the trees:
