Customer Reviews

  1. Highly recommended

    Mikey P. on

    Very cheap price for renting a good size 4 person tent. Staff easy to approach and adaptable to your needs. Highly recommended.

  2. Pristine equipment and incredible service

    Evan H. on

    My fiance and I did a two day rental for a Starved Rock weekend. When setting up camp I was just blown away at how new and fresh and clean everything was. The wheeled duffel bag had been expertly packed and came with neat typed instructions on how to use/setup the various pieces of equipment.

    Pickup and dropoff are downtown, but staff are quick to respond via text/phone and will work to accommodate you. The lobby is just off the curb so you aren’t lugging the pack around, but then there’s the aforementioned wheels so it wouldn’t even be an issue then.

    All equipment is high quality and kept in the most pristine working order.

    I could not even theoretically be happier with this service, and that’s not an exaggeration.

    Thank you so much, Foryst!

  3. 1st Time Camper!

    Sharon on

    This was my first time going camping and Foryst Rentals made my experience easy and wonderful! I came across them by accident ( but we know nothing happens by accident!) and I gave them a call for some help and Demi helped me out! I explained to Demi that I was first time camper and she made sure that I had everything that I needed to make this experience great! The equipment is top notch, I received quite a few nods from the seasoned campers because I had top notch gear! Thank you again for making the process easy and my experience memorable! I am going back camping next month….

  4. Great Kit and Service!

    Kyle on

    Pick-up and drop-off couldn’t have been easier, great customer service the whole way through too! Would recommend using the postmates option for pickup/drop-off, pretty awesome to be able to have camping equipment delivered to your door AND easy return after a long journey. The tent was perfect for our trip and the accessories/flashlights/chairs were really nice. Tent also came with a tarp which was one less thing we needed to buy. OH! Everything comes in a super nice gear bag: chairs, tent, mattress etc in one rolling bag. All high end equipment, our friends were all surprised just how cost effective this was for us.
