Best Campfire Songs – Our Top 7

You’ve had a tough day outside, working hard or going on a long hike and now it’s time to settle down around the fire with the team with your feet up and good food. Before you head out for your camping trip, have a look at our list of the best campfire songs and put them on your phone.

These will help you set the mood around the camp and make it a trip to remember. To go along with our favourite campfire songs, crack open a drink and toast the marshmallow on the smouldering fire. We’d love to hear if you have any favourites, so comment away!

1.) Hotel California – The Eagles

This has to be one of the all-time greatest mood setting songs out there, not just for campfires.

2.) Redemption Song – Bob Marley

A fantastic chill-out song, perfect for warm summer nights. Or pretending it’s a warm summer night!

3.) House of the Rising Sun – Animals

You’ll struggle to want to play this song quietly; it’s got to be one of the best campfire songs out there.

4.) Ain’t No Sunshine – Bill Withers


5.) Talkin’ ‘Bout a Revolution – Tracy Chapman

Not the classic Fast Car, by Chapman but another hugely popular one. Excellent campfire song for singing along.

6.) In the Ghetto – Elvis Presley

Elvis’ tones are soft and easy to listen to. This emotional song will make everyone stop and listen.

7.) Under the Bridge – Red Hot Chili Peppers

The final in our list of ultimate campfire songs, one for the Red Hot Chili Peppers. We couldn’t not include them.


This is by no means a definitive list of good campfire songs, but just some of the old classics and favourites you may have overlooked. If you have an other suggestions, we’d love to hear in the comment box below!
