About Set to Camp

Making comfortable, safe and responsible car camping possible for anyone

It can be hard to comprehend how a family can camp comfortably without a trailer, camper trailer, caravan or RV - or at least a second car to help carry everything and everyone to the campsite.

Once children come along, you realise that camping has just become a lot more complicated, and as you strive to safely transport everyone and everything to the campsite, you realise the car of your youth is no longer big enough, and neither is your tent.

We're going to show you how to put together a comfortable trailer-free camping setup that can be transported by some mid-size and many larger cars on the market.

We cover everything you will need for trailer-free camping for a family or group of up to five, from choosing your car and tent right down to the ideal kitchen and cooking utensils, and everything in between. We also have tools to help you to pack, pitch and pack up, and lots more.
