You'll be spending plenty of time hanging out at your camp, which means it's useful to know what's on the Red Dead Redemption 2 Camp upgrades list so you can make things as nice as possible for you and your extended family. After all, you want somewhere pleasant to get some rest and relaxation in after a tough day's outlawing. As you'll soon find out, Dutch is very keen for you to drop a decent wedge of your cashflow in the camp kitty, but at least this will fund improvements to benefit all of the residents, such as keeping chickens that increase the benefit received from eating the cook pot stew. Upgrading the stations around the camp will also offer up further crafting options, plus an increased supply of ammo and provisions.

To begin making these upgrades in Red Dead Redemption 2, you just need to start investing some of your dollars via the camp ledger, then use this book to choose what you want to buy. You can also make cosmetic upgrades to your facilities by providing Pearson with the right animal parts, and our guide for how to get Red Dead Redemption 2 perfect pelts could really help out there. Here is the complete list of Red Dead Redemption 2 camp upgrades available, including how to unlock them and the reward you earn once obtained.
