Camping Carpets

Once you have stepped out of a warm sleeping bag onto a freezing cold groundsheet you will appreciate the benefits of a camping carpet!

Tent carpets are pretty expensive so if you can’t afford one I would advise buying picnic rugs. The advantage of picnic rugs is that they are small enough to be picked up and shaken outside if they start getting gritty and they can also be washed on a cool wash in a washing machine.  You can use them again for picnics.

The disadvantage of using picnic rugs is that I find that they can be slippy and a bit of a trip hazard but you just need to be careful of this.  Also they aren’t very hardwearing and can rip.

Some people say why waste money on a fully fitted carpet. You only need it where you walk. However if you camp frequently additional floor covering will add to your tents insulation as well as protect your groundsheet from damage from inside and be more comfy.


Your tent manufacturer will have specific tent carpets for most larger tents, however there are universal tent carpets that maybe cheaper or better values, just check your measurements.


Vango do a universal range in different sizes and I think a good price.
