How-To: Amazon Lockers

Technology has helped to develop some of the best camping gear, but it still can’t foolproof forgetfulness.

Let’s be honest, we’ve all been in this situation: heading out for a camping adventure only to realize something has been forgotten.

Well, thanks to Amazon Lockers, campers across the U.S. are able to find what they need and get it shipped quickly to the locker closest to them!

What you need to know:

What is an Amazon Locker?

Simply put, it’s a self-service parcel delivery service created by Amazon.

It allows you to easily send supplies you may have forgotten to the nearest locker-equipped store.

Where are they located?

Currently, Amazon Lockers are plentiful in major cities like Washington D.C., Richmond, Charlotte, and Baltimore. Lockers are also popping up in smaller cities across the U.S.

You can search for the Locker closest to you by clicking here and logging into your Amazon account.  

Don’t have an Amazon account? Create one here.

What’s the Catch?

There aren’t really any catches, but there are a few things to note:

  • There is no additional fee for using an Amazon Locker.

  • Standard Shipping and FREE shipping may be unavailable at some Amazon Lockers.

  • Same-Day Delivery and One-Day Shipping are available in select areas only.

  • All items must be fulfilled or sold by Amazon.com.

  • Shipping weight must be less than 20 lbs.

  • Product dimensions must be smaller than 19 x 12 x 14 inches.

  • Complete details here.

How Can You Get Your Package?

Once your package is delivered to the Amazon Locker, you'll receive an e-mail notification with a unique pickup code that includes the address and opening times for your selected Locker location.

When you arrive to collect your package, enter your pickup code or scan the barcode using the barcode scanner and follow the instructions on the screen.

Note: All packages delivered to Amazon Locker locations have to be picked up within three (3) business days. If your package (or packages) is not picked up it will be sent back to Amazon for a refund.

Camping This Fall: Gear You’ll Need

With the summer heat in full swing, we can’t help but get excited for crispy fall mornings and cool bike rides around Massey’s Landing. Before you hit the road to visit us or your favorite campground, here are a few things you might want to bring along to make chilly temperatures part of the excitement.

  1. Clothes for layering

Cool mornings, warm afternoons and chilly nights are the go to temperature patterns in the fall at Massey’s Landing and around the Mid-Atlantic area. That means you’ll want to pack layers including:

         Tops:

  • Insulated sweaters
  • Windbreakers
  • T-shirts
  • Waterproof outerwear
  • Long-sleeve tops

         Bottoms:

  • Long underwear
  • Jeans
  • Light athletic pants

         Feet:

  • Thick socks
  • Light socks
  • Closed-toe shoes

2. Warm Sleeping Arrangements

At Massey’s Landing we have a variety of camping accommodations from tent sites, to RV areas to cottages. Depending on how you’ll be staying this fall, our recommendation is to bring more snuggly gear if you plan to sleep among the stars or in an RV. Gear could include

  • Insulated sleeping bag
  • Quilts and blankets
  • Sleeping pad
  • Hand and feet warmers
  • Tarp
  • Hot water bottles

3. Hearty Foods

Give yourself permission to eat snacks, fats and carbs. Chilly temperatures mean your body will be working hard to maintain heat while engaging in all the physical activity you’ll do while camping. Hearty, warm meals can help boost your physical and mental state. Try a few of these delicious fall camping meals.
