Our latest winning picture comes from Camping magazine reader Ray Brooks, whose camping snap wins him a Coleman 50QT Xtreme Wheeled cooler

My wife was a camping newbie when we met five years ago… she now loves it more than I do and spends all her time planning our trips away.

Last year I thought I'd surprise her with my new camping outfit and she said if I ever wear it again I will be camping in my own tent. I can't see the problem… I think I look great!

Here's a little more information about Ray's prize: the Coleman 50QT Xtreme Wheeled cooler

With over 47-litre capacity, this cooler has a large volume and great performance due to its polyurethane foam insulation which will keep the contents cold on ice for up to four days.

Designed with two sturdy wheels and a telescopic steel handle, it is ideal for long road trips, days spent on the campsite and transporting food and drink around festival sites.

Along with moulded carrying handles on each side and a drain plug in the base to remove ice melt, the robust, hinged lid also includes four drinks holders and can be used as a seat.


Now send us your camping pictures for the chance to win a Coleman OctaGo tent worth £200



Here's a selection of more of your camping pictures...

Camp set-up in the far north of Norway, on the return leg of my solo trip to the North Cape, the most northerly point of mainland Europe – about 450 miles above the Arctic Circle.

The weather was closing in that day and I found a small quiet site on the shores of a fjord. I managed to get pitched with my Robens Lodge 3, and get some food cooked before the rain really started. Travelling on the bike needs a small pack size, but with the grandson now growing and soon ready for adventures with Grampy, something a little larger will be on the cards.

Well it was wet and windy up the Old Man of Coniston, but we all made it – Helen, Pete, Rosanna and Damien. We drank filtered water from the stream and got back to our very sturdy tents. The Robens Prospector made its first appearance and stood up to the test.

Rosanna Park

This is our new-to-us Marechal Compact Luxe 6 frame tent. We have always preferred to do our family camping under proper canvas, but the addition of a new puppy to our household and two kids who seemingly never stop growing meant that our four-berth Mehler tent was starting to get a bit snug.

The Marechal must have been very expensive when it was new as it's extremely good quality and has a clever movable front panel allowing you to choose between having a sun canopy or maximum indoor space. I think it proves what exceptional secondhand bargains there are and that budget camping needn't mean compromising on quality or features.
