The Basic Campsite is a tool which the player can utilize in Red Dead Redemption. It is automatically given to the player at the start of the game, but it can be upgraded for $175.
The Basic Campsite allows the player to save the game anywhere in the vast world of Red Dead Redemption, fast travel to a known location or waypoint, or change outfits.
The campsite consists of a small campfire to provide heat and light, a bedroll for the player to sleep on, and a coffee pot and cup used to relax after a long day.
- There is a glitch where if the player uses the Basic campsite directly on the spot where a dead eye camp is in multiplayer then the ammunition and dead eye chests from multiplayer will appear at the campsite.
- The campfire still burns even if it is pouring rain outside. While this campfire is too small, it isn't impossible to keep a well stocked, larger fire going even in a heavy rain storm.
- It is possible (however unlikely) to fast travel into a train.
