Car camping is one of the easiest ways to get outside and experience all that Mother Nature has to offer. There are numerous ways to go about it, something a simple as a tarp all the way up to a fancy Airstream trailer works. But, regardless of what your preferred mode of slumber is, there are most certainly adventures out there waiting to be had. Not everyone is cut out for full on backpacking or has the means, desire or time to remodel a retro Van, and that is completely ok!
The list of things to bring camping can however be a bit daunting. We’ve combed through a bunch of gear that makes car camping comfy and put together this list as a great place to start!
There you have it! Although there are a plethora of items we could have added, we wanted to keep this Car Camping Kit list not only brief, but accessible. There are an insane amount of camping gadgets out there that are pretty epic. Once you’ve gotten the basics down and figure out what your specific camping needs are, as well as how often you end up using your gear, consider splurging for an upgrade or a tool that is hyper-specialized, but we are pretty confident that the items on this list will not only keep you comfortable while camping, but will also keep more money in your pockets to spend on the experiences that matter. Happy Camping!
