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.

The trouble is, going from newbie to seasoned family campers without the aid of a trailer, (or even with)  involves A LOT of trial and error, as well as a decent dose of frustration. Not to mention the money wasted on all of those regret buys.

In our member only hub, The Campus, we're going to show you how to put together a comfortable trailer-free camping setup that can be transported by car, including some mid-size cars.

We cover everything you will need for trailer-free camping for a family or group of up to five, from the car you choose and your 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.

Not only that, we are creating a community of like-minded campers, all sharing ideas in an ad free and supportive environment.
