Car Camper

If you want the perfect blend of comfort, ruggedness, and fun while kicking it in the outdoors, the Car Camper is for you.

There is nothing like comfort outdoors. A big tent nestled beneath a canopy of leaves, the dogs dirty and asleep, the kids dipping marshmallows into the campfire while you sit back and enjoy a piping cup of hot chocolate.

All that peace usually comes after a full day of exploring, grilling, playing games and generally enjoying the lack of walls. You’re out there, but not so far that you can’t drive to get more firewood and visit the local waterfall. You have your options: pee next to the tent under the stars, or use the pre-designated pit toilets. You reserve things, you plan them. Memorial Day and Labor Day are the big bashes and any camping in between is a luxurious treat.

Our Recommended Gear and Outdoor Guides for the Car Camper know that you want to kick back and enjoy your stay. Whether it’s a base camp to do serious day hikes, an acoustically jam-packed weekend with friends, or the outdoor families coming together for the annual camp cookout, we have your back.
