When you think of car camping, you may think of relaxed weekends in the woods camping
with your family or a group of a few friends. Whilst this is a great way to spend your car
camping holiday, the great thing about car camping is it’s versatility! If you’re someone who

you lose in proximity you’ll make up for in comfort! If you do decide to car camp offsite then
make sure you have planned a safe mode of transport to and from the festival grounds.

usually come with an inflated price tag due to their convenience. With the CampBoxx, you
can make your own meals with little fuss. You don’t have to dream big – a simple can of
soup with bread, or boiling your own water for a pot noodle and a cup of tea, can go a long
