Finding Your Road Trip Sweet Spot: How to Determine the Best Distance to Drive While Camping

Category: News, Date: 29 March 2023

We asked campers what the best distance to drive during a camping road trip…

Here’s what they had to say:

  • The distance to travel each day depends on various factors such as personal preferences, the number and age of travellers, time, budget, and points of interest.
  • Some people prefer to limit the distance covered to 350-400 km per day, while others may go up to 700 km or more if they are well-rested and driving safely.
  • Many suggest stopping every three hours or driving for five hours max per day, while others follow the 3x3x3 rule (drive 3 hours, arrive by 3 pm, stay for 3 days).
  • Safety is the most crucial factor to consider, and drivers should rest, stop, and revive every two hours.
  • Travellers may take shorter or longer distances depending on their mood, camping spots, weather, and driver’s ability to drive.

The ideal distance to drive on a camping road trip can vary depending on factors such as the amount of time you have, your budget, and the specific locations you want to visit.

However, a good rule of thumb is to aim for an average of 200-300 kilometres per day.

This will give you enough time to stop and explore all the exciting destination hotspots along the way, while still allowing you to cover a reasonable distance and reach your destination in your desired timeframe.

It’s also important to factor in rest days and take breaks every few hours to avoid driver fatigue and ensure a safe and enjoyable journey!
