Know Your Space

What type of vehicle do you drive? A spacious Eclipse Cross, Outlander, RVR or Outlander PHEV would make a great fit for car camping space. A compact car like the Mirage or Mirage G4 would be more economical to travel in but would provide less space and limit the amount of equipment and supplies you can bring with you. No matter the vehicle, car camping is a great way to travel, but you may need to tailor your plans to your specific vehicle!

Location is Everything

Depending on how many people you are camping with, will depend on how much room you will need. With a spacious cargo area and the back seats folded down, you can provide enough room for just a few sleeping bags. If you sleep in your vehicle, make sure that it is well ventilated by cracking the windows to allow the air to circulate and never sleep with the vehicle running. If you have more than 2-3 people camping with you, a tent might be a better option. You will have more room inside your vehicle for overnight storage and more room inside the tent for stretching out. Pitching your tent in close proximity to your vehicle ensures that you have a safe shelter should rain or cold weather happen.

Choosing A Campground

Most campgrounds welcome car campers whether you decided to use a tent or not and offer an array of amenities from completely basic (no water or electricity) to full hook-up sites (more designated to RVs or trailers that include water, electrical outlets and often picnic tables and fire pits).  Provincial and National parks are great destinations for any campers. Enjoy what nature has to offer by taking in the scenery and wildlife.

Food & Supply

You don't want to keep perishable food items in your vehicle for a long period of time or take up majority of your cargo area with a big cooler. Hot dogs over the campfire, s'mores, sandwiches, granola bars, trail mixes and easy prepared meals would be best for packing and prep time.
Always remember to follow food safety precautions and make sure if you are camping in an area with wild animals that you store your food in the vehicle overnight. You don't want to attract a raccoon or bear.
