Do you love to go car camping when you visit your favorite national or state park or attend your favorite music festival? Consider some of these car camping tips to make the most of your next trip.
- Use mosquito netting: If you like to sleep with your trunk or your car doors open to get a nice breeze but are tired of waking up to bug bites, hang mosquito netting over the openings. You’ll still let the outside in—without letting the creepy crawlies in with it.
- Save money: Instead of shelling out cash for things you think you need, think outside the box. For example, use frozen water bottles instead of expensive bags of ice, or use your old air mattress instead of a new expensive sleeping pad. Need a new lantern? Just attach a headlamp to a water jug.
- Light it up: After you put out the fire, save your car’s battery by relying on battery- or solar-powered string lights inside your car. It’s the perfect way to set the evening mood as you cozy up next to the lake or mountains.
- Protect your drinks: Tired of bugs getting in your drinks? Cover your beverage with an upside down cupcake liner and poke a straw through it.
